RotoWire News: Glasnow gave up one run in four innings Saturday, striking out five while allowing four hits and two walks. "A very productive day for him," pitching coach Ray Searage told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "After the leadoff walk, he still was in control. He turned the page and started making pitches."

Profile: Glasnow's first crack at the big leagues didn't go quite as planned. After debuting in July, he sat out over a month with shoulder soreness and pitched mostly in relief in September. All told, he wound up tossing 23 innings of 4.24 ERA ball and struggled with spotty command. Glasnow's stuff is elite, and it plays up due to the extension he gets from his 6-foot-7 frame. Furthermore, his minor league numbers — especially his strikeout numbers — illustrate his immense upside. Few 22-year-olds are capable of striking out over 30% of Triple-A hitters. But he'll need to refine his command to retire big league hitters with any consistency. There's a chance Glasnow puts it all together, wins a job out of spring training and dominates , but don't bank on anything more than a partial season of ups and downs in 2017. But if you're in it for the long game, snatch him up while his value is relatively low. (Chris Mitchell)

The Quick Opinion: Glasnow remains one of baseball's most promising young arms. He may not be ready for showtime just yet, but don't doubt that he might be by year's end.
