Tyler Glasnow Earns Second Straight FSL Pitcher of the Week Award

Tyler Glasnow has won his second straight Florida State League Pitcher of the Week award, this one for the week of August 11-17. Glasnow made two starts during the week, throwing a total of 13.1 innings, with 18 strikeouts and just one run allowed. On the season, he has a 1.43 ERA in 113.1 innings, with 140 strikeouts and a .167 BAA.

Glasnow won the previous week’s award with 11 strikeouts over six shutout innings. Earlier in the day, Glasnow commented on remaining with Bradenton all season, as the make a playoff run. We also had live coverage of his outing from Sunday night and then commented on him possibly being the top prospect in the Pirates system now. Basically, there is a lot of current Glasnow coverage and deservedly so with the season he is having.

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.

    For me, Tyler Glasnow this season has gone from having top of the rotation potential, to top of the League potential. After leading all of the western hemisphere in strikeout ratio last season, now he’s doing this. I mean he’s likely to finish with an ERA under 1.5, with lots of wins and an extremely high strikeout rate. That’s insane dominance….

    I can’t remember a more exciting young pitcher coming up through the minors in my 35 years as a fan. I remember hearing about Deleon the year before he came up to have that magical start to a horrifying career. Closest thing I got. Thoughts?
