Glasnow (4-1) allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out 10 across five innings to earn his fourth win of the season Friday against the Orioles.
Glasnow came into Friday's contest averaging 14.2 K/9 and raised it to 14.6 by the time his night was over. He struck out the side in the first and the fourth en route to his second double-digit strikeout effort of the season. The hard-throwing righty's only mistake of the night was allowing an Austin Hays solo home run to begin the bottom half of the fourth. Glasnow seems to struggle a bit with keeping the baseball in the park -- he's let up a homer in eight of his 10 starts -- but he still sports a 4.21 ERA and an impressive 83:21 K:BB across 51.1 innings this season.
Glasnow (3-1) picked up the win in Saturday's 5-4 victory over the Red Sox, giving up four runs on six hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out seven.
It wasn't the sharpest outing of the year for the 27-year-old, but Glasnow got just enough offensive support to get the win. Part of the problem was his inability to control the running game -- the Red Sox went 6-for-6 on steal attempts against the battery of Glasnow and Michael Perez, a weakness other teams are sure to exploit down the stretch if they get the chance. The right-hander will take a 4.47 ERA and 73:19 K:BB through 46.1 innings into his next start Friday in Baltimore.
Glasnow allowed three runs on four hits and three walks across 5.1 innings in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Marlins. He struck out nine and did not factor in the decision.
Despite throwing 105 pitches, Glasnow fell two outs short of tallying his third consecutive quality start. Although he certainly would have preferred to work deeper into the game, the right-hander was able to punch out nine Marlins. He has now fanned at least eight in each of his last five outings and will take a 4.35 ERA into his start against Boston on Friday. Per Joey Johnston of the Tampa Bay Times, Glasnow's decent start against the Marlins came despite a migraine, though that seems unlikely to still be an issue during his next outing.
Glasnow (2-1) picked up the win Monday, allowing two hits and a walk over six scoreless innings in a 5-3 victory over the Yankees. He struck out nine.
The right-hander didn't give up a hit until his final inning of work, and even then Willy Adames nearly made a spectacular play in the hole to throw out DJ LeMahieu and keep the no-no alive. Glasnow tossed 55 of 87 pitches for strikes, and over his last three starts he's posted a stellar 1.93 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 30:5 K:BB through 18.2 innings. He'll look to keep rolling in his next outing at home against the Marlins.
Glasnow (1-1) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk over seven innings in a 4-2 victory over the Orioles. He struck out a season-high 13.
The right-hander settled down quickly after serving up a solo shot to Renato Nunez in the first inning, and Glasnow recorded his first quality start of the season in addition to his first win and first double-digit strikeout performance. He threw a whopping 72 of his 96 pitches for strikes in the dominant outing, and the 27-year-old seems to be righting the ship after a shaky beginning to 2020. Glasnow will carry a 5.14 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 48:14 K:BB through 28 innings into his next start Sunday in Miami.
Glasnow allowed two earned runs on two hits and three walks while striking out eight across 5.2 innings Wednesday against the Yankees. He did not factor into the decision.
Glasnow turned in his longest start of the season, needing 88 pitches to retire 17 hitters. The major damage against him came on a solo home run by Luke Voit in the third inning, though Glasnow largely stymied the Yankees' lineup on the strength of 23 called strikes and nine swinging strikes. Walks were still a problem for Glasnow, and he now owns a 5.6 BB/9 for the season. Still, he'll look to build on this relatively positive outing in his next start, currently projected to come Monday against Toronto.
Glasnow allowed five earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out eight across four innings Thursday against the Red Sox. He did not factor into the decision.
Glasnow was given 10 runs to support his endeavor to earn his first win, but he failed to pitch efficiently enough to qualify. Positively, he kept the ball in the yard and racked up strikeouts. However, he surrendered five extra-base hits and regularly worked deep into counts while running up his pitch count. Glasnow has an incredible 15.9 K/9 through 15.1 innings this season, but that has been offset by a 5.9 BB/9 and 1.8 HR/9. He has also yet to complete five innings of work in any of his four outings, but he'll look to change that his next time through the rotation Tuesday at the Yankees.
Glasnow (0-1) took the loss in the first half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Yankees, allowing four runs on five hits in just 2.2 innings of work, striking out five while walking three.
Glasnow has failed to pitch long enough to earn a win in any of his three outings this season, though this time that was due to poor performance rather than by design. He matched Gerrit Cole with a pair of scoreless innings to start the game, getting out of a bases-loaded jam in the second, but he allowed a two-run homer to Mike Ford and a two-run double to Gio Urshela in the third, forcing him out of the game. He now owns a 5.56 ERA through his first three starts, with his 37.3 percent strikeout rate being offset by 15.7 percent walk rate and a 30.0 percent HR/FB rate.
Glasnow, who allowed two earned runs on three hits and three walks while recording five strikeouts over 4.2 innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Saturday, is developing into one of the most uncomfortable pitchers for hitters to face, Matt Kelly of MLB.com reports.
As Saturday's line indicates, Glasnow still has some work to do on his control, which has often been an albatross during his first four seasons coming into 2020. However, Kelly points out the combination of Glasnow's 97 mph fastball with his towering 6-foot-8 frame and expansive wingspan make him quite the intimidating sight from a batter's box view. The right-hander's 7.6 feet of average extension from the pitching rubber to the plate before uncorking a pitch ranked tops in the majors last season by a comfortable margin, and his four-pitch arsenal, which includes a fastball that can either ride high in the zone or cut to his glove side, makes life all that more difficult on hitters. Glasnow's struggles Saturday largely stemmed from poor location, but he offered a glimpse of how dominant he can be by racking up nine strikeouts and allowing just an earned run on a solo home run over four innings to the Braves in his first start of the season Monday.
Glasnow didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 14-5 romp over Atlanta, allowing one run on one hit and two walks over four innings while striking out nine.
The Rays gave him plenty of run support, but Glasnow was on a restricted pitch count and got pulled after 72 pitches (45 strikes), denying him the win despite his dominance. The right-hander had similar issues last season when he was healthy, averaging barely five innings over his 12 starts, but the 1.78 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 11.3 K/9 he posted in 2019 highlight his sky-high upside.
Glasnow will take it one inning at a time in Monday's home start against the Braves, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
He threw three innings in his final exhibition start in camp and was just so-so, as he struck out five but walked four. It sounds like Glasnow could theoretically go five-plus innings if he's on, but it also wouldn't be surprising if he didn't go deep enough to qualify for a win in his first start of the season. He lines up for a two-step, with his second start of the week coming in Baltimore over the weekend.
Glasnow allowed two hits and four walks over three innings while recording five strikeouts during Monday's intrasquad start, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "The feel for things just wasn't there today. I just couldn't get my curveball over, and it let guys sit on the heater," Glasnow said. "But I'm pleased with where I'm at."
As his line implies, Glasnow was a mixed bag in his intrasquad duel versus Blake Snell, with the big right-hander clearly fooling some of his teammates but also experiencing some trouble with location. One of the misplaced offerings resulted in the hardest-hit ball of the contest, a home run by Ji-Man Choi to right field. Glasnow lines up to start either the third or fourth game of the season against the Blue Jays on Sunday or Monday, and manager Kevin Cash attributed some of Glasnow's control issues Monday to the "workload restraints" of the shutdown and summer camp.
Glasnow clarified Tuesday that his late arrival to camp was in fact due to COVID-19, which he tested positive for during intake testing, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Glasnow didn't arrive at camp until Tuesday but was already able to throw 49 pitches in a simulated game. He told reporters that he didn't experience much more than mild cold symptoms and was able to keep throwing while quarantined. He expects to be ready for the start of the season, though it's likely that he'll have a more limited workload than normal in his first outing or two.
Glasnow threw 49 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Glasnow wasn't able to report to camp until Tuesday for undisclosed reasons, but it doesn't appear as though he's fallen behind while away from the team. He struck out four batters in his 3.1 innings of work, throwing 28 of his 49 pitches for strikes. If he ramps up by about 15 pitches per outing, he could be ready to throw approximately 80 pitches in his first start of the year.
Glasnow (undisclosed) was spotted on the field Tuesday at the Rays' summer camp workout, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Glasnow's appearance is his first at Rays camp since the team resumed training July 3. A reason behind his absence was never provided, but now that he's back with the team, Glasnow will have 10 days to get his arm conditioned for starting duty before the Rays begin their season July 24 versus the Blue Jays. While Glasnow is expected to serve as the team's No. 3 starter in 2020, his delayed arrival at camp could prompt the Rays to push him to the back of the rotation schedule or skip one of his turns entirely as he looks to build up his pitch count.
Glasnow has not been observed at any of the Rays' summer camp workouts at Tropicana Field, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Glasnow was reported to be ready to take on a regular-season workload in the days leading up to summer camp, but he's now apparently been a non-participant for four days. The towering right-hander is due for a prominent rotation role in the coming season, although it remains to be seen if his ongoing absence is ultimately illness-related.
Glasnow shouldn't be limited in terms of his workload during the truncated 2020 season, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Glasnow has reportedly been one of the Rays' most diligent players during the shutdown of spring training, throwing regularly in the Arizona area. The big righty had declared himself "ready right now" for the regular season back in early June, and he reiterated last week that he could "pitch five or six innings right now." While there certainly seems to be a bit of embellishment at play in that proclamation, Glasnow could well be one of the better-conditioned pitchers that's evaluated first-hand by the Rays' coaching staff when summer camp opens Friday. If so, perhaps Glasnow will be unleashed right away once the regular season begins.
Glasnow is in the process of returning to the Tampa area from his Arizona home ahead of the Rays' upcoming summer camp, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Glasnow has been working out on his own in Arizona and apparently doing a very good job of it, considering pitching coach Kyle Snyder described the towering southpaw as "ready right now" for the regular season weeks ago. While there might have been at least a slight degree of embellishment in Snyder's comments given the restricted conditions players have been subjected to, Glasnow should have plenty of time to further condition himself for a late-July start to the 2020 campaign.
Glasnow is "ready right now" to begin the regular season according to Rays pitching coach Kyle Snyder, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Glasnow was not one of the pitchers who had a chance to throw off a mound at Tropicana Field on Friday under Snyder's supervision. However, the towering southpaw has been able to throw regular bullpen sessions in his local area while spring training has been suspended and has kept in regular contact with his pitching coach. Snyder is evidently impressed with the ongoing work Glasnow has been putting in to make such a proclamation, and the coach's optimism seems supported by the 26-year-old's on-field results. Glasnow followed up a stellar 1.78 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 76:14 K:BB across 12 starts last season with a pair of scoreless appearances in Grapefruit League action before play was paused.
Glasnow is tabbed as a potential future ace of the Rays' staff by team beat writer Juan Toribio, Bill Ladson of MLB.com 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.
