Pirates prized pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow makes his debut this afternoon. It should make for good TV as Glasnow is a 6'8 flame throwing strikeout machine. What will make it interesting is that he has some significant command issues. He has been able to work around this in AAA, but obviously this is a different animal. Double digit k's and 4-6 walks have been commonplace for him, but this will likely not be a recipe for success in the big leagues.
I'm hoping he shows enough to stay in the rotation the rest of the year. Habitual under performers Jeff Locke and Jon Niese have no upside so it really shouldn't take a whole lot to knock them out.
