Tyler Glasnow and Josh Bell Win FSL Season Awards

The Pittsburgh Pirates had two of their top prospects win season awards on Tuesday afternoon. Pitcher Tyler Glasnow and right fielder Josh Bell were named the top players in the Florida State League. The two Bradenton Marauders stars were named the 2014 Pitcher and Player of the year.

Glasnow missed the first month of the season with a back injury, yet still put up impressive numbers. Through 22 starts, he has a 1.67 ERA in 118.1 innings. Glasnow has 148 strikeouts, a .167 BAA and a 1.05 WHIP. He ranks first in ERA, first in WHIP and second in strikeouts. He has given up three earned runs or less in 20 of his 22 starts and Glasnow has thrown shutout ball in 11 of his outings. He has one more start left this season and possibly playoffs if Bradenton can overcome a half game deficit in the last week.

Bell hasn’t been in the FSL since the All-Star break. He is still the league leader in batting average(.335) and his .886 OPS is 56 points higher than the second highest in the league. Unfortunately, he didn’t pick up enough plate appearances to qualify for the league lead, falling 15 plate appearances short. He finished with a .335/.384/.502 slash line in 84 games before being promoted to Altoona.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
