Glasnow (2-6) picked up his second win of the season against the Rangers on Monday. He hurled six shutout innings, allowing just two hits and two walks while striking out six. Glasnow has been a good starter for the Rays since moving into their rotation. He's only allowed more than three earned runs in two of his nine starts and has registered a quality start in three out of his last four. He'll return to the hill Saturday against Toronto.
Glasnow (1-6) allowed two runs on six hits with no walks across seven innings to take the loss Tuesday against Cleveland. He struck out three. Glasnow threw 73 percent of his pitches for strikes and induced 10 groundball outs. He avoided handing out a walk for the second time in a start this season and was only scored upon via a pair of solo home runs in the fifth and sixth innings. Glasnow was rocked for seven earned runs in less than an inning of work in his previous start, so this was a terrific sign for the former top prospect as he regains his confidence as a starter. He's scheduled to take the mound again next week against the Rangers.
Glasnow (1-5) was hit with the loss Wednesday against the Blue Jays, allowing seven runs on five hits and two walks while recording just two outs. He struck out two. Glasnow just didn't have it in this one, as the young right-hander couldn't make it out of the first inning. He issued a leadoff walk before allowing four of the next five batters to reach via singles, putting the Blue Jays up 3-0. Glasnow then proceeded to serve up a three-run homer to Aledmys Diaz. The 25-year-old was almost out of the inning, but a wild pitch allowed Billy McKinney to reach base on a strike out and Glasnow was subsequently pulled having thrown 39 pitches. The disaster outing raised his ERA from 3.95 to 4.64. Glasnow look to right the ship in his next start, which will come at home against the Indians.
Glasnow (1-4) took the loss Friday against the Indians, allowing one run on two hits and one walk across seven innings. He struck out six. It was an unfortunate result for the right-hander, who turned in his best outing of the season but was ultimately outdueled by Corey Kluber's seven scoreless frames. Glasnow hadn't completed seven innings in his big-league career prior to Friday, and now owns a solid 3.23 ERA and 38:10 K:BB in six starts (30.2 innings) since being traded from the Pirates to the Rays at the end of July. He'll look to keep things rolling in his next start, which will come on the road against the Blue Jays.
Glasnow allowed three earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out eight across five innings Thursday against the Royals. He did not factor into the decision. Glasnow was limited to a relatively short outing due to struggles with his control, though he generated an impressive 14 swinging strikes on 96 total pitches. Though he has surrendered six free passes across his last two starts spanning 11.2 innings, Glasnow has allowed 3.5 BB/9 across 23.2 total innings as a Ray. He is now fully stretched out, so if he can maintain his improved control, he should be able to pitch deeper into games each time out.
