Archer trade gets even better as Rays add promising young pitcher

NEW YORK - The return the Rays got from the Pirates for Chris Archer already looked good.Right-hander Tyler Glasnow has been increasingly impressive in three starts using his high-octane fastball and cruel breaking balls, and outfielder Austin Meadows has shown the talent and

Rays acquire Shane Baz as PTBNL in Chris Archer trade

The RHP is currently ranked 4th in the Pirates system When the Rays traded Chris Archer to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Tyler Glasnow and Austin Meadows, there was a third piece missing, one that all parties agreed would be much bigger than a simple PTBNL. Well that player has been named, and it is right-handed pitcher Shane Baz, according to reports. Baz, who is currently ranked fourth in the Pirates prospect system and 95 on the overall MLB Pipeline top 100, is a legitimately great score for the Rays as part of the Archer trade. The 19-year-old grades out at an overall 50, with high marks...

Jays pull out a close one to avoid sweep

Rays 1 Blue Jays 2 For a good portion of the day, it looked like the Jays were in for the sweep as the bats were stymied by Tyler Glasnow, but a late rally provided just enough to eke out the series finale and stave off the brooms. Marcus Stroman turned in a very good start despite a significant blister issue that ultimately forced an early departure after 5 innings. He did work around some trouble, which just one totally clean inning, but also helped himself significantly a couple times flashing the leather where his background as an infielder shone though. The one run he (and the Jays)...

Jays 2, Rays 1: That could have gone better

Glasnow had his longest outing yet, and it was good. The Rays had just enough bad luck to lose this game in a matter of inches. Overall, it was a solid enough match, and the Rays had already won the series, but the one-run loss is never fun to watch. Tyler Glasnow certainly looked the part of a starter today, going 5+ innings and ending his day giving up only 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, and a nice healthy 6 K. It was his longest outing since joining the team as part of the Chris Archer trade, and the debate as to whether or not he can make it as a starter seems to be winding down, as he shows...

Rays 4 Orioles 3: Walk it off, Willy!

Tampa Bay comes from behind to defeat Baltimore The Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-3 on a walk-off home run by Willy Adames. But this game seemed to have several chapters before it sailed to its happy conclusion. There was the “Tyler Glasnow is dominant” chapter, there was the “Rays can’t do more than roll over on Cobb breaking balls” chapter, there was the “ah, THIS is why the Orioles are in last place” chapter followed by the “Willy is our hero” chapter. Let’s take them one by one. Chapter 1 The Rays starter today was Tyler Glasnow, one of the players coming to...

Tyler Glasnow has the stuff to start

And the Rays are going to let him. ST. PETERSBURG, FL — In joining the Tampa Bay Rays, newly acquired pitcher Tyler Glasnow, previously the Pittsburgh Pirates top prospect (who peaked at No. 14 on Baseball America’s top-100), has an entirely new adventure ahead of him. In Pittsburgh, the coaching staff had apparently run out of ideas, relegating Glasnow relegated to a relief role. The Rays intend to fully reverse that course andreturn him to the starting rotation. Despite being similarly minded organizations in some ways, the Pirates and Rays vary in some subtle but key areas for their...

Oh, we love it. Hey everyone. The Rays began their first full day without Chris Archer by throwing their new shiny toy on the mound. Tyler Glasnow got the start today and he wasted no time getting the party started as he struck out David Fletcher on an inside 97mph fastball with some cut action. Tyler Glasnow's first batter as a member of the @RaysBaseball went as follows: 95-97-96-97.

Is Tyler Glasnow the future?

Is Tyler Glasnow the future?

The newest Rays flamethrower comes with a range of possible outcomes. After years of rumors and speculation, the Rays finally pulled the trigger on a Chris Archer trade. In return the Rays acquired outfielder Austin Meadows, right handed pitcher Tyler Glasnow, and a player to be named later. The headliner of the deal is Austin Meadows, but the second piece of the deal was right-handed pitcher Tyler Glasnow, who might overcome some initial disappointing major league results to give the Rays a top-flight pitcher for the starting rotation. Glasnow entered the league with much fanfare, and it...
