Tyler Glasnow had a dominating start on Thursday against Richmond and that earned him the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week award for last week. Glasnow threw seven shutout innings, allowing three hits, no walks and he struck out nine batters.
On the season at Altoona, he has a 2.12 ERA in 51 innings over ten starts. Glasnow has 60 strikeouts, 13 walks, an 0.88 WHIP and a .176 BAA. In his last two starts combined, he’s allowed four hits over 13 shutout innings, with no walks and 16 strikeouts. The walks are a strong improvement, as he has gone from 4.1 BB/9IP last year, down to 2.3 this season.
Glasnow won the Florida State League Pitcher of the Week award in back-to-back weeks last August while with Bradenton.
