|Pirates | Juan Nicasio's spot in danger|
Fri, 17 Jun 2016 11:49:56 -0700
Pittsburgh Pirates SP Juan Nicasio was roughed up in his last start, and he might be moving to the bullpen soon. His next turn would come against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, June 21, but the Pirates haven't announced their pitchers for that series. Nicasio is holding opponents to a .235 average the first time through the lineup with a 4.88 strikeout-to-walk ratio, but hitters are batting .326 and his strikeout-to-walk ratio moves to 1.15 the second time through. SPs Tyler Glasnow, Wilfredo Boscan and A.J. Schugel are options to replace Nicasio in the rotation if he's booted.
Fantasy Tip: Nicasio was an early season sleeper target because of his impressive spring training work, but he's quickly faded and should only be rostered in NL-only leagues at this point. Top pitching prospect Jameson Taillon is already up, but Glasnow's addition would be welcomed immensely by fantasy owners everywhere. Stash Glasnow now if he's out there in your league.

|Pirates | Jameson Taillon to skip start|
Sun, 29 May 2016 12:40:56 -0700
Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon recently skipped a start for Class AAA Indianapolis because the Pirates want keep him fresh for the end of the season when he may be pitching for the team. The team is also limiting SP Tyler Glasnow's work for the same reason.
Fantasy Tip: Taillon and Glasnow are expected to be recalled at some point this season and should have an impact in the starting rotation. Taillon may be the first prospect to be promoted, but both players will have fantasy value in deeper mixed leagues. Owners should add either pitcher they have roster space.

|Pirates | Bucs pitching prospects not being rushed|
Mon, 23 May 2016 09:13:51 -0700
Pittsburgh Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said he does not want to rush SPs Tyler Glasnow and Jameson Taillon to the major leagues this year. However, Huntington also said they both "probably" will be up with the Pirates this year. Pittsburgh's starters have combined for a 4.27 ERA, which is sixth highest in the National League. Glasnow has a 2.16 ERA in nine starts for Class AAA Indianapolis and leads the International League with 63 strikeouts in 50 innings. Taillon has posted a 1.82 ERA in eight starts for Indianapolis. Huntington also said the team could use Glasnow or Taillon to help their bullpen
Fantasy Tip: Both Glasnow and Taillon have similar high strikeout upside at the next level and are likely to be stashed already in the majority of seasonal leagues. Taillon has been set back in recent years by Tommy John surgery, so Glasnow has a little more hype surrounding him entering this year. There's a good chance we see one or both within the next month.

|Pirates | Tyler Glasnow assigned to Class AAA|
Mon, 14 Mar 2016 12:08:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Glasnow is the top pitching prospect for the Pirates, and he is likely only a strong run with Indianapolis away from joining the big club. Through 109 1/3 innings across three levels, Glasnow returned a 2.39 ERA with a 11.2 K/9 last season. He is a stash candidate in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats, and a player to watch in all seasonal leagues because of his huge upside.

|Pirates | Jameson Taillon sent to Triple-A|
Mon, 14 Mar 2016 05:59:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Taillon is a late-round flyer that could be a factor if an injury or demotion opens a spot in the rotation.

|Pirates | Tyler Glasnow promoted to Class AAA|
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:52:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Glasnow is the organization's No. 1 prospect and breezed through Class AA with a 2.43 ERA, a 0.95 WHIP and a 11.7 K/9 KP over 12 starts. There is a chance he receives a start or bullpen work when rosters expand in September, so keep tabs, especially in keeper/dynasty formats.

|Pirates | Andrew Lambo, Tyler Glasnow receive honors|
Tue, 17 Sep 2013 08:20:42 -0700
Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew Lambo and P Tyler Glasnow were named as the team's Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Year. Lambo hit .282 with 32 home runs and 99 RBIs in 120 games with Triple-A Indianapolis and Double-A Altoona this year. Glasnow went 9-3 with a 2.18 ERA in 24 starts for Single-A West Virginia.
Fantasy Tip: Lambo is a candidate to platoon in the outfield next year with Jose Tabata, so he's more of an NL-only target in the late rounds. He has good power skills and could become a fixture in the Bucs outfield all season long. Glasnow probably won't make much of a fantasy impact until 2015, at the earliest.
