Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that the club doesn't plan to call up pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow in September.



"He is not in our plans right now," Huntington said. Glasnow boasts a 1.95 ERA and 127/38 K/BB ratio over 101 2/3 innings this season across three levels, including a 0.81 ERA in six Triple-A outings. His workload isn't an issue, but the Pirates apparently want to hold off on adding him to the 40-man roster.

full time starter next year?

Most likely they hold him down to start the year for an extra year of team control.

It's August 30th, I think it's impossible for him to accrue enough service days to lose a year of team control

Disappointing for fantasy owners. The right move for the Pirates? Not so sure...

Summer call up is the latest and most realistic.

"What about top prospects Tyler Glasnow and Jameson Taillon joining the rotation?

Waiting in the wings of the starting rotation are Tyler Glasnow and Jameson Taillon. It seems widely agreed upon that both of them will see major league service some time during the 2016 campaign.

Glasnow is not quite ready, according to reports. He’s got control issues, even though his velocity has improved. At 6’8” the repeat-ability in his delivery is the root of his control issues. Read the latest about Glasnow at Pirates Prospects.

Taillon was once thought ready for MLB back in 2014 but that season ended with him needing Tommy John surgery. 2015 brought a healed Taillon but then he was felled again by injury -this time requiring hernia surgery. Now, supposedly, 2016 will be his year. We finally might get the chance to see that high 90s fastball, and nasty curveball that the prospect pundits have been raving about.

The same prospect pundits rate both Glasnow and Taillon as having “top of the rotation” potential.

MLB Columnist Richard Justice had them both on his list of rookies who will impact the pennant race. But what will the future hold for them in 2016? How much Vogelsong and Locke will happen before these guys see the daylight?"

Wouldn't tallion get the first call up. He's been worked more in the minors and was a top prospect. I'm sure injuries pushed him back but behind Glasnow?

I would say definitely not. Taillon hasn't had any meaningful innings since 2013. Not only that, but he hasn't been nearly as productive as Glasnow when he has been healthy.

Actually, according to BaseballReference, Glasnow has logged more innings than Taillon (402.2 vs 384.0) as well as more starts at AAA (8 vs 6). Also, as George noted above, while Glasnow was dominating the last 2 seasons, Taillon hasn't thrown a pitch in a game since 2013.

His biggest knock is his ability to be consistently in the strike zone. If he can show early this year that this aspect of his game has improved or is actively improving, he'll get the nod. Keep in mind that the Pirates are historically cautious with promoting prospects, let alone ones with injury history. Glasnow before Taillon and I'd be stunned if it was the other way around.

7 hits and 3 walks in 10 innings over his two starts...not many base runners but what's the story on his ability to keep opponents from stealing bases at will? That was/is one of the key things he had to work on from before & throughout spring training...just curious if anyone knows or has read anything about improvement in that regard...?
