Prospect Highlights: Video of Tyler Glasnow and Nick Kingham From Tuesday

Tyler Glasnow threw seven innings on Tuesday and allowed one run on one hit. It was a terrific outing, though it still broke his scoreless streak, which extended back to his start on May 22nd. Glasnow has pitched great this season after a real shaky outing in his second start. He walked seven batters in that game and lasted just two innings. Through 11 starts, Glasnow has a 1.62 ERA in 55.2 innings, with 61 strikeouts, .148 BAA and no homers allowed.

Nick Kingham pitched just as well on Tuesday, allowing one unearned run on two hits in 6.2 innings. In the video below, he picks up his fifth strikeout. Kingham has given up one earned run in 20.2 innings since being promoted to AAA. With 69 strikeouts this year, he is the Pirates minor league leader in strikeouts

    Great to see some Glasnow video. The breaking pitch is just nasty with the quick sharp break. The fastball explodes to the plate with his gorilla-long arms. I feel sorry for the hitters that have a split second to pick that up.

    Great Video, John. Thanks to you and the 500 teenage girls sitting behind you. Those are some awful uniforms. Could almost read the ‘Chico’s Bail Bonds’ on the back.
