Glasnow hurled seven scoreless innings for Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday, allowing three hits and no walks while striking out six.
Since the Pirates demoted him to Triple-A on June 10, Glasnow has compiled a 1.49 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 55:15 K:BB in 36.1 innings. Pittsburgh's current rotation is probably the strongest it's been all season long, so the 6-foot-8 righty will likely have to wait for injuries to strike before he returns to PNC Park. In the meantime, he'll continue to regroup at Triple-A after posting a 7.45 ERA in 12 early-season starts for the Bucs.
Glasnow was sent down to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.
Just a day after allowing six earned runs on 10 hits over four innings of work to Miami, Glasnow finds himself headed to Indianapolis. The 23-year-old has had a rough go in 2017, posting a 7.45 ERA with a 1.91 WHIP and a 2-6 record over 12 starts. The Pirates will push Chad Kuhl to Glasnow's scheduled start on Wednesday while welcoming back Jameson Taillon from his rehab Monday.
Glasnow (2-6) surrendered seven runs (six earned) on 10 hits over four innings while striking out only one in Friday's 12-7 loss to the Marlins.
He served up multiple homers for the second straight start, and there have been few signs of progress from the 23-year-old through his 12 outings this season. With Jameson Taillon (groin) set to return next week, the Pirates could use that as an excuse to send Glasnow back to Triple-A Indianapolis to try and get himself straightened out, but if he remains in the rotation his next start will likely come Friday at home against the Cubs.
Glasnow (2-5) pitched five innings, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks with five strikeouts in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Mets.
The long ball bit Glasnow early and often against the Mets, serving one up in three of the first four innings. Saturday was the fourth time in five starts that Glasnow has failed to pitch more than five innings. One of the more heralded pitching prospects heading into the season, Glasnow now carries a 6.95 ERA. Control has been one of the biggest culprits, as he has given out two or more free passes in 10 of his 11 starts and averages 5.19 BB/9. He will look to turn things around on Friday when he faces the Marlins.
Glasnow worked around nine hits to allow just two runs over six innings in Atlanta on Tuesday. He struck out four and walked two.
While Glasnow is steadily showing signs of improvement, he also certainly hasn't reached peak efficiency yet, as his stats make painfully evident. His upside as a highly pedigreed starter for a Pirates team with a history of developing arms well makes Glasnow intriguing for fantasy purposes, but few of his stats offer much reason for optimism that he'll improve markedly in the near term. The 23-year-old still needs to get a handle on his control and get better at keeping the ball in the yard.
