The Pirates have announced that Tyler Glasnow will get the start on Sunday against the Washington Nationals.
Glasnow rejoined the Pirates as a September call up after being on the disabled list with shoulder discomfort following his start versus the Philadelphia Phillies on July 23rd. The 23-year-old right-hander made his big league debut on July 7th against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium.
Since returning to the Pirates in September, Glasnow has appeared in three games out of the bullpen where he’s allowed two runs in seven innings of work. General manager Neal Huntington recently said that he wouldn’t rule out Glasnow making a start before the season ended, and so he will receive one on Sunday. A couple weeks ago, Glasnow was named MLB Pipeline’s Pitcher of the Year for 2016.
