Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Considered ace-caliber arm
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow is tabbed as a potential future ace of the Rays' staff by team beat writer Juan Toribio, Bill Ladson of reports.

Glasnow was once considered the top prospect in the Pirates' organization, and his performance in an injury-shortened 2019 served as a tangible reminder of why. The towering right-hander posted a 1.78 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 76:14 K:BB across 12 starts and followed it up with a pair of scoreless appearances in Grapefruit League action this spring before play was suspended. Naturally, southpaw Blake Snell is also considered top-of-the-rotation material for the Rays, but Toribio notes Glasnow was arguably the AL's best pitcher over the first six weeks of last season and could ultimately be the team's most effective arm over the long term if he remains healthy.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Works sim game Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow threw 50 pitches across three innings in a simulated game Tuesday, Juan Toribio of reports.

Glasnow worked with Mike Zunino as a battery mate and faced Nate Lowe, Kevan Smith and Daniel Robertson during his three frames. The right-hander threw 27 pitches for strikes in what would turn out to be his final tune-up for the regular season now that the remainder of spring training has been cancelled due to concerns over the COVID-19 virus. Glasnow finished Grapefruit League play with 2.2 scoreless innings during which he allowed three hits and posted a 5:1 K:BB across a pair of starts.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Solid in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow started Thursday's Grapefruit League split-squad win over the Tigers, firing a scoreless first inning during which he allowed a hit and a walk while recording two strikeouts.

Manager Kevin Cash came away impressed with his young right-hander's performance, particularly the command Glasnow displayed with his fastball. Marc Topkin and Mari Faiello of the Tampa Bay Times report the only other pitch the 26-year-old utilized Thursday was the curveball, as Glasnow stayed away from both his changeup and splitter across his 19 pitches. The hurler was pleased with his performance on the mound, which incorporated the slight tweaks to his delivery he's been working on this offseason. Glasnow will have a chance to stretch out to multiple innings in his next start, which is likely to come in the early portion of next week.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Impresses in batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow impressed in his first time facing live hitters Wednesday, a session during which he threw 25 pitches, Juan Toribio of reports. "He's worked hard," said manager Kevin Cash. "I was impressed. The effort level was good but it also was under control. You could tell by the way he was throwing so many strikes and his misses were just, just misses. You could tell by the hitters reactions that the stuff was coming out really, really hot."

Glasnow mostly threw four-seam fastballs while facing Joey Wendle, Yoshitomo Tsutsugo and Hunter Renfroe during the session, but he also included a couple of changeups. Glasnow had reportedly decided to eliminate the pitch this coming season due to discomfort when throwing it, but after tweaking his mechanics this offseason, the right-hander is ready to deploy it once again. Glasnow has also been working on a splitter, and although he didn't utilize the pitch Wednesday, there appears to be a strong chance Glasnow enters the regular season with a four-pitch arsenal that also includes his four-seamer and curveball.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Shaking up pitch mix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow (wrist) has scrapped his changeup and has been working on a splitter as his new third pitch, Juan Toribio of reports.

Glasnow almost exclusively used his fastball and curveball last season, throwing his changeup just 3.5 percent of the time. It would be premature to alter Glasnow's projection based purely on the news that he's learning a new pitch, but an altered pitch mix certainly brings the potential for a new level of performance. It's not effectiveness but rather health that's the worry for Glasnow, however. He posted an incredible 1.78 ERA and a 33.0 percent strikeout rate last season, but that came in just 12 starts. There's already some cause to worry about his health for the upcoming season, as he underwent a wrist procedure in November, but he's expected to be on schedule for the start of camp.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: On schedule after wrist procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow underwent a median nerve decompression procedure on his right wrist in November but has been throwing without issues and isn't expected to miss any time at the start of spring training, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Any surgery is a potential worry, and that's doubly true for a procedure on a pitcher's arm, but this particular surgery doesn't appear to be a major issue. Glasnow's health can't be fully trusted after forearm problems limited him to just 12 starts last season, and while this news adds at least a bit of extra risk, the righty can calm any potential fears by looking normal at the start of spring training.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Reaches deal to avoid arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow and the Rays agreed to a one-year, $2,050,000 contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.

Glasnow showed his promise in his first full season with the Rays in 2019, posting a 1.78 ERA and a 33.0 percent strikeout rate in 12 starts. A forearm strain cost him more than half his season, adding plenty of injury risk heading into the 2020 campaign, though he came back from it in September and looked as good as ever, striking out 21 batters while allowing just two runs in 12.1 innings of work.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Receives starting nod for Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow will start Game 5 of the ALDS at Houston on Thursday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

The Rays lost the first two games of the series but were able to win both games in Tampa Bay to force the winner-take-all contest. Glasnow took the mound in Game 1 and gave up two runs on four hits and three walks over 4.2 innings while recording five strikeouts. The 26-year-old reached 76 pitches in that outing and should be able to have a slightly higher workload Thursday. Gerrit Cole will start the deciding game for the Astros.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Tabbed for ALDS Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Kevin Cash said Glasnow is expected to start Game 1 of the ALDS at Houston on Friday, Janie McCauley of the Associated Press reports.

Glasnow posted a 1.46 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 21:5 K:BB over 12.1 innings across his four September outings after returning from a forearm strain, so it makes sense he'd receive the nod for Game 1 after Charlie Morton delivered five shutout frames in Wednesday's Wild Card Game. Glasnow topped out at 4.1 innings and 66 pitches during his last start Sept. 27, which provides a framework for his potential pitch count in the series opener

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Fires 4.1 hitless frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow surrendered two walks and struck out four over 4.1 scoreless innings Friday night against the Blue Jays. He didn't factor into the decision.

Glasnow would depart with a three-run lead, and the Rays would go on to clinch a postseason berth with a 6-2 victory. The 26-year-old right-hander has been stellar on the hill of late, as he's now tossed 10.1 scoreless frames over his last three outings. Glasnow owns a 1.78 ERA and 0.89 WHIP with a 76:14 K:BB over 60.2 innings this season.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Sparkles in three innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow allowed two hits with zero walks and seven strikeouts across three innings during a no-decision against the Red Sox on Saturday.

The Rays have been cautious with Glasnow, who missed a majority of the summer with a forearm strain, since he returned from the IL. He didn't make it through the four innings the Rays planned, but he was spectacular through three, striking out at least two batters per inning. Glasnow owns a 2.25 ERA and 17 strikeouts in eight innings since returning from his injury. Overall, he is 6-1 with a 1.92 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, .198 batting average against and 72 strikeouts in 56.1 innings this season. Glasnow lines up to make one final start during the regular season at the Blue Jays on Friday.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Slated for four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow is expected to cover around four innings Saturday in his start against the Red Sox.

The Rays are still proceeding slowly with Glasnow as he builds up his arm following a prolonged shutdown due to the forearm strain he suffered in mid-May. The early returns have been promising for Glasnow, who has routinely sported a high-90s fastball while allowing two runs and striking out 10 in five innings since he was activated from the injured list. Assuming he avoids any setbacks in Saturday's outing, Glasnow would likely be in store for around five or six innings in his final start of the regular season next weekend in Toronto.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Sharp in abbreviated start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Angels, giving up two hits and a walk over three scoreless innings while striking out five.

The right-hander got stretched out to 51 pitches (29 strikes) in his second outing since returning from the injured list, but he looked much sharper in this one than he did last weekend against the Jays. Glasnow has a 10:3 K:BB through five innings in September, and the Rays will continue gradually increasing his workload as they try to lock down a wild-card spot. His next start is scheduled for Friday, at home against Boston.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Emerges healthy from first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow's previously sore forearm tolerated a 41-pitch workload in his first start well and he tentatively lines up for his next turn Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Glasnow ultimately only got through two frames on that pitch count due to some modest location issues, but of overriding importance is the fact he's experienced no adverse residual effects. That sets up Glasnow to continue building up his arm, with a report earlier in the week indicating the Rays ideally hope to have him back to a conventional starter's workload by the time the regular season concludes in anticipation of a potential postseason run.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: To continue building up workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow is slated to continue building up his pitch count over his remaining starts, Juan Toribio of reports.

The word on Glasnow throughout his rehab had been that he'd only be used as a reliever upon his return, but he started Sunday and Toribio's report indicates that manager Kevin Cash will continue to extend Glasnow's workload. The right-hander worked up to 41 pitches across a pair of frames in his return, and he's slated to work 3-to-4 innings in his next start. If all continues as planned, Glasnow will presumably be built up enough by the end of the regular season to serve as a conventional starter if the Rays are able to clinch a playoff spot.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Gives up two runs in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow gave up two runs on one hit and two walks while striking out five through two innings in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Only expected to pitch a couple of innings in his first outing off the injured list, Glasnow struck out the first three batters he faced before walking two and allowing a two-run home run in the second frame. On the positive side, the 26-year-old hit 100 mph on his fastball and generated six swinging strikes. Glasnow has a 2.15 ERA and 60 strikeouts through nine starts this season. Glasnow is scheduled to be the opener again Saturday at Angel Stadium.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow (forearm) was activated off the 10-day injured list as expected Sunday, Juan Toribio of reports.

Glasnow was in the midst of a breakout season before being shut down with a forearm strain in mid-May, recording a 1.86 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP in eight starts. He struck out 30.1 percent of opposing batters while walking just 4.9 percent. He hasn't had the time to build up to a true starter's workload, but he's expected to open Sunday's game against the Blue Jays and throw two or three innings before handing the ball to the bullpen.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Ready to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow (forearm) will be activated to start Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Juan Toribio of reports. Glasnow is expected to pitch 2-to-3 innings before turning the game over to the bullpen.

The Rays were thinking about sending Glasnow for one more rehab start with Triple-A Durham, but they will instead activate him for the final game of the homestand. Trevor Richards, who was also a candidate for that start, could follow Glasnow in a piggyback role. Glasnow was on a brilliant run to start the year, posting a 1.86 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in eight starts before going down with the forearm strain.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Next step still undetermined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow (forearm) threw a side session as planned Thursday, but whether he'll make another rehab appearance for Triple-A Durham or be activated from the injured list has yet to be determined, Juan Toribio of reports.

Glasnow emerged from a 33-pitch rehab outing Monday without setbacks, and his bullpen session Thursday reportedly went off without a hitch. The right-hander could well be deemed ready to return to the big-league club, but making at least one more appearance with the Bulls is in play as well. Since Glasnow is expected to serve in some type of multi-inning relief capacity upon his return -- as opposed to being deployed as a conventional starter -- his arm is stretched out enough to handle that assignment.

Rays' Tyler Glasnow: Bullpen to determine next step
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glasnow (forearm) will throw another bullpen session Thursday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

General manager Erik Neander said the team will make a decision regarding Glasnow's next step after seeing how he looks during Thursday's session. He worked up to 33 pitches in a rehab appearance Tuesday with Triple-A Durham, and if Glasnow looks good during Thursday's bullpen session, he could be activated from the injured list. It is unclear what role Glasnow will occupy upon his activation, but he could be used as a primary pitcher following an opener.
