Earlier today Jeff Passan speculated that Tyler Glasnow would be a good return for Bud Norris. While it seemed like speculation, the fact that Passan mentioned Glasnow twice, and specifically went to him, made it seem like it could be something more. It would have been a total 180 of what the Pirates have done the last few years, where they don’t over-pay in prospects for marginal talent. Passan reports tonight that Glasnow won’t be traded.
Pirates have no plans to move Class A standout Tyler Glasnow. Still plenty in system to get Bud Norris. Alex Rios remains a target as well.

Our long National nightmare is over.
Also, from what we’ve learned tonight, it doesn’t seem like the Pirates are in on Norris or Rios anymore.
