Glasnow (shoulder) threw from 90 feet Friday, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
This marked the first day that Glasnow threw from 90 feet while rehabbing his shoulder. He was able to throw without any discomfort and should continue progressing as scheduled. This bodes well for the Pirates, as they are expected to activate Glasnow from the disabled list when he is eligible on August 8.
Glasnow went on the 15-day disabled list on July 24, making him eligible to return August 8. This is good news for Glasnow, who did not need an MRI on his shoulder. The hope is that Glasnow will resume baseball activities in the coming days.
Glasnow (shoulder) said his discomfort grew worse with each inning of pitching Saturday. "It's better when you go up there 100 percent healthy," he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
The rookie is far from a finished product. He gave up five stolen bases, hit two batters, made one error and threw only 42 of 78 pitches for strikes. Even more than his poor statistical start, fantasy owners will need to await news on his shoulder, though it doesn't appear as if the injury is too severe.
Glasnow left Saturday's game in the fourth inning with right shoulder discomfort.
He was erratic when on the mound, walking three batters and hitting two others with just 42 of his 78 pitches going for strikes. The Pirates figure to put Glasnow through a battery of tests to determine the full extent of the issue, as they won't want to take any chances with one of their top prospects. Ryan Vogelsong (eye) could be ready to fill a rotation spot soon.
Glasnow left Saturday's game against the Phillies with an apparent injury, Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
It wasn't obvious what exactly was ailing Glasnow, but he appeared to be favoring his back or side after delivering a pitch to Peter Bourjos in the fourth inning. Glasnow was likely headed back to Triple-A Indianapolis anyway, as he struggled both with his command and in controlling the run game (five stolen bases allowed) in his three-plus innings, and Ryan Vogelsong (eye) is expected to slot into the rotation in the near future.
