Tyler Glasnow could open the 2018 season in the Pirates' bullpen.
"I don't want to single him out, but we are more open to one, maybe two young starters being in the bullpen to start the season, with the idea in the long term we believe they're starting pitchers," Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Tuesday at the Winter Meetings. Glasnow posted excellent numbers as a starter this past season at Triple-A Indianapolis, but at the major league level he got hammered to the tune of a 7.69 ERA in 13 starts and two relief appearances.

Tyler Glasnow will not make another start this season.

The Pirates had planned to give the young righty another start, but with some extra off days in September they've decided to stick with their normal five and put Glasnow and Steven Brault in the bullpen the rest of the way. Glasnow holds an ugly 8.02 ERA over 14 appearances -- 13 starts -- this season.

Tyler Glasnow will pitch in relief in Wednesday's game versus the Brewers.

Glasnow will get another start sometime this month, but he'll make a relief appearance first. He allowed five runs and walked six over just 2 2/3 innings in a start last week. There's still definite long-term upside here, but Glasnow can't be trusted in fantasy leagues right now.
Sep 18 - 4:26 PM

Tyler Glasnow couldn't throw strikes and ended up allowing five runs in just 2 2/3 innings in a loss to the Brewers on Wednesday.

He issued a whopping six bases-on-balls and hit a batter in the brief outing. He was yanked during the Brewers' four-run third inning that featured a two-run homer by outfielder Eric Thames. Control has been a major problem for Glasnow throughout his young career in the majors and minors. He falls to 2-7 with an atrocious 7.89 ERA and even worse 2.00 WHIP after 13 starts. He has 53 strikeouts and 35 walks (and 13 homers) in 57 innings this year. He had a 1.93 ERA in 15 starts at Triple-A Indianapolis this year and has great potential if he can hone his control.

Tyler Glasnow will start for the Pirates on Wednesday against the Brewers in Milwaukee.

He's likely to make a few starts with the Pirates over the final few weeks of the regular season so the club can get a good look at him heading into 2018. He's worth a look as a streaming option in all mixed leagues.

Pirates recalled RHP Tyler Glasnow from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Glasnow simplified his delivery at Indy and was dominant with a 1.93 ERA and 140/32 K/BB ratio over 93 1/3 innings. He'll be given some starts down the stretch and is worth a gamble in mixed formats.
Sep 10 - 1:12 PM

Brian Peloza of reports that the Pirates will recall Tyler Glasnow on Sunday.

Peloza also says that Jacob Stallings, Edgar Santana, Johnny Barbato, Jack Leathersich and Dan Runzler are coming up, but Glasnow is obviously the headliner here. The tall right-hander has been hit-or-miss during his time in the majors to this point, but Glasnow started pitching exclusively from the stretch at Triple-A Indianapolis and posted a dominant 1.93 ERA and 140/32 K/BB ratio over 93 1/3 innings. He should get some starts in the final weeks for the Pirates and is worth a shot in deeper leagues.
Sep 10 - 10:28 AM

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that the team will consider using a six-man rotation in September in order to get Tyler Glasnow and Steven Brault some work.

Brault has been moved to the bullpen at Triple-A Indianapolis for now, but apparently it's possible that he'll still see some starts next month. Glasnow has been rumored to be on the verge of a promotion for a while now, but with the Pirates' rotation mostly pitching well and staying healthy, he's remained in the minors. He boasts a 1.99 ERA and 122/29 K/BB ratio over 81 1/3 innings at Indy this season.

Tyler Glasnow is not expected to be called up on Tuesday.

Jameson Taillon ran out to the bullpen during Monday's extra-inning loss to the Dodgers, but he didn't end up being used. Perhaps Glasnow would have gotten the call if Taillon ended up pitching, but the Pirates will gain an extra year of service time if they wait a few more days before calling him up. Glasnow owns a ridiculous 1.79 ERA and 113/27 K/BB ratio over 75 1/3 innings since his demotion to Triple-A in June. He's worth a stash for the stretch run in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
Aug 22 - 10:36 AM

Pirates optioned RHP Tyler Glasnow to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Glasnow allowed seven runs -- six earned -- over four innings Friday in a loss to the Marlins, ballooning his season ERA to 7.45. He'll work on his craft against a lower level of competition, with Jameson Taillon (cancer) returning from the disabled list to fill the rotation vacancy in Pittsburgh.
Jun 10 - 12:49 PM

Tyler Glasnow was tagged for seven runs -- six earned -- in four innings by the Marlins in a loss Friday.

We've said it before, but we can't imagine Glasnow will stay in the rotation after this. He remains a really good bet for the long haul, but his ERA is back up to 7.45 now and he's had just one quality start in his last six outings (and three in 12 starts for the year).
Jun 10 - 12:19 AM

Tyler Glasnow allowed four earned runs, five hits and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a road loss against the Mets on Saturday.

Glasnow struggled with his command and location, posting just 49 strikes on 89 pitches. He'll be happy if he doesn't see the Mets again this season, as he is 0-2 with an 8.10 ERA in two starts. Of course, he hasn't exactly lit the world afire against other teams, either.
Jun 4 - 12:58 AM

Tyler Glasnow's troublesome 2017 season continued on Sunday as he allowed five runs on eight hits over five innings in a loss to the Mets.

Glasnow struck out three on the evening and didn't walk a batter. He kept the Mets' offense at bay through the first three innings, but they broke through for a pair in the fourth on a two-run double by Asdrubal Cabrera and tacked on three more the following frame. The rookie hurler now sports a cringe-inducing 6.95 ERA and 1.90 WHIP on the season. He'll hope for better results in a rematch against the Mets in New York on Saturday.
May 28 - 11:26 PM

Tyler Glasnow held the Braves to two runs over six innings Tuesday.

Glasnow surrendered nine hits – including a solo home run to Matt Adams – and also walked a pair, but he managed to hold Atlanta relatively in check. He also did his part and then some at the plate, picking up three singles in three at-bats. Glasnow remains volatile for fantasy purposes, as his penchant for free passes can result in blowup starts at any time. He faces the Mets on Sunday.
May 24 - 2:06 AM

Tyler Glasnow allowed four runs -- two earned -- over five innings Thursday in a win over the Nationals.

Glasnow was backed by 10 runs on 13 hits from the Pittsburgh offense to pick up his second win of the season. He struck out six but walked three and surrendered three hits, including a solo homer to Daniel Murphy in the top of the second inning. Glasnow will carry a 7.34 ERA into his next start on the road versus the Braves.
