Tyler Glasnow Starting Tonight; Ngoepe/Inman Promoted to Indy

Right-handed pitcher Tyler Glasnow has been reinstated from the disabled list and will start tonight for the Altoona Curve in Harrisburg. It will be his first start since May 17th. He has since made two rehab starts in Morgantown, recovering from an ankle injury.

The Pirates also announced that shortstop Gift Ngoepe and right-hander Jeff Inman have been promoted to Triple-A Indianapolis from Altoona. Ngoepe is hitting .260 in 71 games for the Curve this year, while Inman has a 2.79 ERA in 19.1 innings. RHP Clario Perez has been assigned to Double-A Altoona, which was announced in a series of moves yesterday.

  • FINALLY Inman has made it up there. Been injury prone for some time and one of my wife’s fav players! Good luck Jeff.

  • Good luck to Glasnow tonight. Hope he has a successful end of the year in AA. Wish he was ready to pitch at PNC!

    • 7 SOs, 3 1/3 innings,2 unearned runs bat at his 70 pitch limit. Without the errors he would have probably have gone 5 +. And he was getting squeezed a lot according to the Curve broadcaster.

      • Think the 70 was decided before he went out there?

      • Yeah I took a look at the box score. Will be nice to read a live report tomorrow if there is one. In a normal 100 pitch outing he would have gone 5…think you’d take that from a first start back from the DL…only gave up 2 hits and didn’t walk anyone I don’t believe. I definitely think we can call that a good outing, despite it being cut short. On another note…Stallings allowed 4 runners to steal and caught none. Yikes!

        • I was at the game last night and I thought he looked good. Base running by the Curve was awful and it looked like Harrisburg was running at will, I as starting to have Barajas flashbacks

    Congrats to Gift! Even making it to AAA is a huge accomplishment for a guy with his history. Hopefully the bat continues to develop to a point where he becomes a serious asset to the big club.

      I am really rooting for Gift as well. I hope the bat continues to develop. My guess is you will see a drop in performance like we have with Willy Garcia but I hope he does well and we see him in Pittsburgh soon.

    • I concur. His name alone is enough to make me cheer for him, but his story is really special. Congrats Gift. Keep on swinging in Indy!
