BEST PLAYER: In a season in which fellow prospect righthander Jameson Taillon has come back strong after sitting out two seasons with injuries, righty Tyler Glasnow remains the organization's top young talent.
The 22-year-old Glasnow has been ranked as the system's No. 1 prospect after each of the past two seasons because of his high-90s fastball and big-breaking curveball.
Glasnow went 7-2, 1.70 through his first 16 starts at Triple-A Indianapolis. He had recorded 10.5 strikeouts and 5.1 walks per nine innings, while allowing just 53 hits (three home runs) in 90 innings.
The 6-foot-8 Glasnow, a 2011 fifth-round pick from high school in Santa Clarita, Calif., will join the injured Taillon in the big league rotation on Thursday.
