It was his worst performance since coming over to Tampa in the Chris Archer deal, although facing the Boston offense can have that effect on a pitcher. Glasnow threw only 50 of 94 pitches for strikes, but despite this stumble he still boasts a 3.38 ERA and 24:6 K:BB through four starts with the Rays. He'll look to get back on track in his next outing Thursday at home against the Royals.
Glasnow allowed one run on two hits while striking out six across five innings Sunday as he didn't factor into the decision against Toronto.
Glasnow cruised through the first five innings, but he allowed a run in the sixth and exited a 1-1 game shortly after. He's off to a promising start with the Rays after being dealt from the Pirates prior to the trade deadline: he's surrendered three runs and recorded 20 punchouts over 12 frames. Glasnow owns a 3.97 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 92 strikeouts through 68 innings this season.
Glasnow gave up one run on two hits and zero walks while striking out nine over four innings Tuesday against the Orioles.
The Rays watched their newly-acquired prized young arm utterly dominate the Orioles for four frames and were disciplined enough to pull him after 61 pitches -- his highest pitch total since April 19, when he threw 73 pitches in Philadelphia. The Orioles' lineup is among the worst in baseball, so that was working in Glasnow's favor, but there's no denying Glasnow seems to have unlocked something since being traded to Tampa Bay. He has allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out 14 across his seven innings (two starts) with the Rays. The next step for Glasnow is to gradually build up to a starter capable of going five or six innings per outing. His next start will be Sunday in Toronto.
After the Rays acquired Glasnow from the Pirates ahead of last week's non-waiver trade deadline, it wasn't immediately clear if he would slot into the Tampa Bay rotation or work out of the bullpen in a de facto starting role behind an opener. According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays intend to transition him back into a traditional starting role, so it's expected that he'll build up his pitch count in his subsequent outings. Because he had worked exclusively as a multi-inning reliever this season during his time with the Pirates, Glasnow was pulled after 48 pitches in his Rays debut Aug. 1, but look for him to get a slightly longer leash in his second start with the club.
Glasnow didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Angels, allowing one run on two hits and a walk over three innings while striking out five.
The right-hander got pulled after throwing 48 pitches (34 strikes), and it's not yet clear whether this was due to Glasnow working out of the bullpen with the Pirates, or because the Rays don't plan to fully stretch him out and keep him as an opener/long reliever, but either way it was an impressive debut with his new club. The 24-year-old has battled control issues in the majors, but with only 144.1 big-league innings under his belt he's still very capable of putting everything together and reaching his sky-high ceiling. He'll next take the mound Tuesday at home against the Orioles.
