AFL: Tyler Glasnow Throws Three Scoreless Innings

Tyler Glasnow got his second start of the Arizona Fall League on Monday night. His results weren’t good in his first game, but the scouting reports from that game had a lot of great things to say about him.

More High Praise For Tyler Glasnow

Tyler Glasnow did not have a good first outing in the Arizona Fall League last week. You could say that the start looked horrible on paper, but a pitching line, especially an abbreviated one that lasted just 29 pitches, can only tell so much of the story. People that were at the game tell a much different story of Glasnow’s outing. Keith Law wrote that Glasnow was one of the top two pitchers he saw during the first week of the...
