When Greg Glasnow compared observing the change in his son Tyler’s demeanor to watching grass grow, he meant it in a positive way.

Tyler Glasnow takes pride in not allowing inherited runners to score

Tyler Glasnow came in during the bottom of the second inning of the Pirates’ 7-0 loss to the Washington Nationals Thursday night. With two outs, he whiffed Rhys Hoskins, who had led off that inning with a homer, and stranded two runners inherited from Jameson Taillon.

Tyler Glasnow's spin rate has increased this season. 'Run with it, kid,' his pitching coach says.

MIAMI — Tyler Glasnow has pitched fairly well early in his first full season as a reliever. He allowed one run in six innings in his first three outings, with eight strikeouts and five walks, before a fluky outing in Chicago resulted in four runs in two thirds of an inning. Glasnow’s spin rate backs up his results.

After early lead Pirates fall to the Chicago Cubs 13-5

Through two outings, Tyler Glasnow has pitched well in relief

Tyler Glasnow is 6-foot-8, all arms and legs. Harnessing those limbs presents a challenge at times.

So, about that movement on Tyler Glasnow's fastball

BRADENTON, Fla. — Tyler Glasnow’s fastball has always had some natural movement on it, and he thought it was a problem. So he tried to compensate for the cut.
