Glasnow allowed two hits, three walks and two runs in 1.2 innings Saturday. He did not strike out a batter, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "Maybe I'm thinking too much about mechanics and things I've got to work on rather than just going out and competing," he said.

The Pirates had internal talks about recalling Glasnow last summer but chose to continue his development at the Triple-A level. “We had legitimate discussions about (calling up) Tyler last year,” general manager Neal Huntington told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “Ultimately, we felt it was in his and our best interest to continue the development and command of the fastball, the consistency of his breaking ball, the ability to throw it for a strike and for a chase, and to develop the changeup (at Indy)."

2016

2015

Along with the injured Jameson Taillon, Glasnow ranks atop Pittsburgh's impressive list of pitching prospects. The 6-foot-7 righty built upon an impressive 2013 at Low-A with a standout season for High-A Bradenton last year. Working primarily worked off a high-90s fastball and sharp-breaking curve, Glasnow recorded 157 strikeouts in just 124.1 innings. He gave up only 74 hits but walked 57. Fortunately, the control improved year over year, from 4.9 BB/9 to 4.1 BB/9. Although the 21-year-old struggled in his lone playoff appearance and wasn't particularly dominant in the Arizona Fall League, he'll get a bump up to Double-A in 2015. While it's unlikely the organization promotes him to the big leagues before 2016, he could see time with Triple-A Indy this summer. His ceiling remains as high as anyone in Pittsburgh's farm system.

2014

Glasnow exploded onto the scene in 2013, striking out 164 batters in 111.1 innings for Low-A West Virginia. The 20-year-old righty throws a 95 mph plus fastball and sharp curveball from a 6-8, 215 frame. His numbers include a 2.18 ERA and 1.04 WHIP. A 4.9 BB/9 could hold Glasnow back against more advanced hitters, but he's athletic enough for his size and has time on his side to project improvement. He'll make the jump to High-A in 2014, and if he finds a way to harness his control, he could advance quickly through a typically-conservative Pittsburgh farm system.
