The Pirates and fifth-round pick Tyler Glasnow have agreed to terms on a $600,000 bonus, the highest known deal outside of the top 65 picks this year. MLB's guideline for Glasnow's No. 152 slot is $166,500.
Glasnow is extremely projectable at 6-foot-7 and his fastball has reached the low 90s at times. His secondary pitches are still a work in progress. The Hart HS (Santa Clarita, Calif.) righthander was part of Portland's recruiting class.
