Tyler Glasnow Has Seen a Big Increase in His Spin Rate...

PITTSBURGH — Spin rate is the measure of how often a baseball rotates around its axis after a pitcher lets the ball go toward home plate. It’s something that’s always existed in baseball, and spinning the ball is how breaking pitches were invented. A curveball will have a very high spin rate, with pitches with […]

Neal Huntington Talks Bullpen Construction, Possible Changes

PITTSBURGH — Options abound for a Pirates bullpen that’s been the biggest sore spot in an otherwise uplifting start to the 2018 season. Move an in-the-groove Tyler Glasnow into higher-leverage innings? Bite the bullet and give Kevin Siegrist a Major League roster spot? Call up off-season acquisition Kyle Crick from Triple-A? Think about Joe Musgrove […]

Pirates Are Easing Him Along, But Tyler Glasnow is Showing Something...

PITTSBURGH — For a man once considered one of the most promising prospects in all of organized pro baseball, the standard for Tyler Glasnow has lowered considerably. “He got outs,” was how Clint Hurdle began his assessment of Glasnow’s three-inning performance against the Twins on Wednesday night at PNC Park. “He picked up the bullpen […]

A New Approach With His Fastball Has Tyler Glasnow Seeing Early...

BRADENTON, Fla. — As of this moment, Tyler Glasnow is a relief pitcher. He seems to like it. The talented Pirates right-hander has had solid results as a starting pitcher in the minor-leagues, but hasn’t gotten that to translate to success in the majors. Last year, he was given a chance to prove that he […]

No, Tyler Glasnow Wasn’t Trying a Cutter, But He Is Trying...

BRADENTON, Fla. — Pirates Twitter was abuzz over Tyler Glasnow’s Grapefruit League start Sunday against the Red Sox at LECOM Park, although the hubbub wasn’t so much about his pitching line as his repertoire. To get to the point: Was Glasnow mixing in a cut fastball? He’s never thrown one in his major-league career, as […]

Gajtka: Like It or Not, Tyler Glasnow Must Be Given Every...

While I’ll arrive in Bradenton on Friday for a weekend of on-site spring training coverage, I’ve done my best to keep up with the happenings from afar. One man’s progress has held more significance in my mind than most others on this team. His name is Tyler Glasnow. Glasnow has reached the stage in the […]

Williams: The Pirates Have a Good Rotation, But It Isn’t Yet...

BRADENTON, Fla. – It’s probably not a big revelation that pitching wins championships. Last year, the top eight teams in starter ERA made the post-season. Coincidentally enough, or maybe not coincidence, those teams also were the eight teams to make it beyond the Wild Card game. That group included teams with a good offense, and […]

Williams: An Encouraging Change in How the Pirates Develop Upper Level...

BRADENTON, Fla. – Tyler Glasnow looks bound for the bullpen in Pittsburgh. Steven Brault should join him. Nick Kingham could be there too in the same role, but probably only if there’s an injury to one of the above guys, or someone in the rotation. Kevin Newman is learning second base, rather than strictly playing […]

Fangraphs Ranks the Best of the Recent Graduated Prospects

Fangraphs had an interesting list posted on Friday in which they rank they players who recently lost their prospect status.

Tyler Glasnow is Getting Back to What Previously Worked, Right When...

BRADENTON, Fla. – Tyler Glasnow breezed through the minor leagues in the most dominant way imaginable. He consistently struck out about a third of the batters he faced, put up ERAs below 3.00 and sometimes below 2.00, and was just unhittable. Then, Glasnow arrived in the majors, and didn’t see the same success. He made […]
