College: Dallas Baptist
Ht.: 5'11" / Wt.: 205 lbs

Drafted in the 5th round (133rd overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2021 (signed for $12,500)
Glenn should provide a team with a solid senior signing as a productive infielder who led Dallas Baptist in almost every offensive category. He hit .366/.438/.732 with 21 home runs, 13 steals in 13 tries and walked almost as much as he struck out. The downside is he is quite old for a prospective draftee. A fifth-year senior, the 23-year-old is older than a number of established major leaguers. He’s already finished his degree in business administration and is working on his masters of business administration. Glenn primarily played second base in 2021 after playing third base full-time in 2020. He has played everywhere around the infield at various points in his career. He fits best at second, where he’s shown above-average range, a quick transfer and an ability to throw with various arm angles. His average arm does limit him when he plays on the other side of the infield. At the plate, Glenn has shown above-average raw power which generally plays in games to his pull side. Glenn’s 2021 production was excellent, and a clear notch above his previous years--he hadn’t hit .300 in his first two years at Dallas Baptist. Teams have to decide how much of that was a product of being a savvy fifth-year college player.
