Tyler Glasnow, a projectable 6-foot-7 righthander, comes from an athletic family. His mother was a gymnast at Cal State Fullerton and the gymnastics coach at Cal State Northridge, and his brother Ted is a decathlete at Notre Dame. Glasnow is still growing into his huge body, but he reportedly ran his fastball into the low 90s this spring, though scouts say his fastball ranged from 83-89 mph more often, sitting in the mid-80s. He flashes a curveball that has a chance to be average and the makings of a slider and a changeup, but he rarely uses the change. His command has a long way to go, and he is regarded as a high-risk prospect who could provide a high reward if he can harness his mechanics and command. He is committed to Portland.
