Glasnow (0-1) allowed three runs on six hits and four walks over 3.1 innings while striking out four to take a no-decision in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Cubs.
The 23-year-old has shown little sign this season of being ready for the majors. Through four starts, he's managed to last only 14.2 innings with a 17:13 K:BB, and his 7.98 ERA and 2.45 WHIP can only partially be written off as bad luck. Glasnow's next start is scheduled for Tuesday in Cincinnati, but if he doesn't start giving the Bucs more length and walking fewer batters, he could be facing a trip back to Triple-A.
Glasnow (0-1) allowed three runs, one of which was earned, on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over 4.2 innings, but received no decision Friday against the Yankees.
Even though Glasnow left the contest with the 4-3 lead, he ran his pitch count up to 102, forcing an early exit from the contest and keeping him from potentially earning his first victory of the season. After allowing nine earned runs over 6.2 innings in his first two outings, this start was clearly better, but he's not a pitcher who appears to be trustworthy in fantasy lineups. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Cubs.
Manager Clint Hurdle said Sunday that Glasnow will stay in the rotation despite his recent struggles, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.
Glasnow's two starts this season haven't lasted long, as the 23-year-old has surrendered a combined 11 runs (nine earned) over 6.2 innings. The biggest issue, as with most of his brief career, has been issuing too many free passes. He's walked seven already this season after allowing a BB/9 over 5.0 at both the Triple-A and major league levels last season. Despite those struggles, Hurdle believes "that the greatest opportunity for growth is for him to pitch at this level," so it doesn't seem like the young right-hander is going anywhere any time soon.
Glasnow (0-1) allowed six runs, four of which were earned, on six hits and two walks while striking out seven across five innings, but didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Cubs.
Glasnow dug a 6-2 deficit before leaving the contest, but the Pirates bats came to life after his departure, taking him off the hook for a loss. He's been touched up for nine runs over 6.2 innings in his two starts to begin the season, and he'll need to turn things around quickly to be useful in fantasy lineups. He'll make his next start Friday against the Yankees.
Glasnow gave up six runs (four earned) in five innings Saturday, allowing six hits and two walks while striking out seven in a no-decision.
When the Cubs tagged Glasnow for four runs in the first inning, it appeared as though the hard thrower might be destined for a brief outing. He rebounded with a 1-2-3 second inning, however, and showed glimpses of hope. The defense behind Glasnow struggled and home plate umpire Allen Porter squeezed the strike zone, but the righty did a good job controlling his emotions. Surprisingly, Glasnow's changeup proved to be the most effective weapon in his arsenal. After Saturday's effort, it seems likely he'll continue pitching in the Bucs' rotation.
