The Penultimate: The Great Glasnow

One of the more impressive players I saw last year in Triple A was Pirates pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow.  Durham Bulls pitcher Blake Snell ended up winning the majority of the Pitcher of the Year honors by a bunch of different publications, but I would have to put Glasnow in that conversation.  He came into the year rated as a Top 20 prospect and did not disappoint in his three stops last year.

I always throw out the win-loss record in the Minors, he only won 7 of his 22 starts, but also managed to keep the ball in the park, struck out more than a batter per inning, and barely allowed more than a base runner per inning.  Overall, a great prospect, so I thought I should pick a copy of one of his autographs.

Surprisingly, for being a high profile prospect, Glasnow is not a really expensive autograph.  Big name prospects can be pricey at times, but not I guess people aren't doing much with Glasnow.  I found this card for slightly less than $10 shipped.  This is an on-card autograph and I really like the horizontal design of these autographs.
