Keith Law has posted his latest update of the top prospects in the game(for ESPN Insiders) and he now has Pittsburgh Pirates’ RHP Tyler Glasnow as the sixth best prospect in the minors. The new list includes draft picks, with Brendan Rodgers being the only 2015 pick in his top ten. The interesting thing about that placement is that Law was very high on Pirates’ first round pick Kevin Newman, ranking him only behind Rodgers in this draft class.
Glasnow was #9 back on May 26th when Law posted his top 25 rankings. That list also had Austin Meadows and Jameson Taillon, so it’s quite possible that if Law posted an updated 25, he would have four Pirates on it.
Glasnow will make a rehab start tonight for Morgantown, in a game that should also include the pro debut of Newman, as well as some other 2015 draft picks.
