Tyler Glasnow will make his return to the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight. It may end up being a pivotal start for the youngster. Follow along with PBD in the debut of our live notes.
Tyler Glasnow’s re-debut is complete and it was U G L Y. Some bad luck but mostly a very poor outing. 2.2 innings. 5 runs, 4 hits, 5 walks, 3 strikeouts. Definitely not what anyone wanted to see from the top prospect.
Might be the best guess for Glasnow’s continued MLB struggles.
Eric Thames blasts his 30th home run, this one a two-run shot to give the Brewers a 3-1 lead.
Is Glasnow perhaps tipping his pitches as this reader thinks?
Wade LeBlanc was warming up when Glasnow got that strikeout. Never a good sign when a reliever is warming up in the first inning.
Tyler Glasnow getting a huge taste of adversity in his return to the Big Leagues as the bad call costs him at least one run.
There are bad calls.
