Tyler Glasnow Named MiLB.com Starting Pitcher of the Year

Tyler Glasnow has been getting a lot of recognition for his superb season at Bradenton this year and he picked up another honor Thursday morning. Glasnow was named the top starting pitcher in the minors by MiLB.com. The 21-year-old righty had a 1.74 ERA over 23 starts, throwing a total of 124.1 innings. Glasnow had 157 strikeouts and a .174 BAA, while allowing just three homers. He led the FSL in ERA and WHIP(1.05) and finished second in strikeouts. He is currently pitching in the Arizona Fall League for the Scottsdale Scorpions.

Glasnow has also been named Baseball America’s top FSL prospect. He’s also been named MLB.com’s pitching prospect of the year and the Pirates named him the organization’s minor league pitcher of the year. Glasnow also won the MiLB award for FSL pitcher of the year, he made Baseball America’s minor league all-star team. Basically, he has received a lot of honors this year. Glasnow was also named Pirates Prospects’ pitcher of the year for the second straight season.

Sam Dykstra from MiLB has a terrific article on Glasnow from this morning that I highly recommend.

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.

As they would say in business, I think a promotion or two may be in order.

Yeah…it’s a 21 year old that dominates with 2 pitches and has control issues. Way to use your brain.
