Glasnow struck out nine but didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 7-6 loss to the Blue Jays, giving up three runs on seven hits and three walks over 5.1 innings.
The former Pirate closes out the season with a 4.20 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 64:19 K:BB in 55.2 innings since he was acquired by the Rays. Glasnow still has some things to work on -- his 1.6 HR/9 in Tampa is less than ideal -- but the 25-year-old's strikeout potential should have him locked into the No. 2 spot in the rotation behind Blake Snell heading into next spring.
Glasnow is scheduled to make his final start of the season Friday against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Since Glasnow's previous start came Saturday in Toronto, he would be available to take the hill for Thursday's series finale against the Yankees on his normal four days' rest, but Rays manager Kevin Cash elected to give the hard-throwing righty an additional day off. Fantasy owners probably won't complain about the delayed start, as Glasnow will now skip out on a matchup with a Yankees squad that leads the majors in home runs and instead close out his campaign against a Toronto offense that ranks in the bottom half of the league in wOBA thus far in September.
Glasnow (2-7) took the loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday despite giving up three runs in six innings. He allowed six hits (including a home run) and two walks while striking out six.
Glasnow gave up all three runs in the fourth inning on Rowdy Tellez's two-run homer and Reese McGuire's run-scoring double. The tall righty notched his fourth quality start in five outings but is now 1-5 in his last six decisions. As the Rays' already faint playoff hopes fade, Glasnow likely will make his final start of the season Thursday against the Yankees, which doesn't make him alluring to those chasing streamers.
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 on 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.
