It just sort of surprised me that the evaluation made it sound like he was all over the place with his control and I had never really seen that anywhere else.

In his last ten outings, he has given up 24 walks. One of those games was a seven walk game, so take that out of the equation and he’s walking just under two batters a game. With the amount of hits he gives up, that isn’t a problem. He also is still just 19-years-old and being 6’8″ at that age, it’s going to take some time to adjust your mechanics to the height. Glasnow has two plus pitches, his fastball and curve. His changeup is a work in progress, something he doesn’t have confidence in yet. The last start I saw, he was going heavy with the changeup, going with the old practice makes perfect theory. A this point with his age and where he is at, he is going to have some flaws and while his control could be better, I think he has shown better control recently while maintaining his dominance

I am sure I have never seen this assessment of him,but I am wondering what your idea on that might be ? The most recent numbers I see from him is about 2.55 to 1,which sure doesn’t seem to match up with the BBA description.
