The Pirates gave up on 24-year-old Tyler Glasnow in 2018 when they dealt him away in one of the worst trades you’ll ever see, also giving up Austin Meadows and Shane Baz for Chris Archer.
Why was it such a mistake to give up on Glasnow, who had been incredible in the minor leagues? And was he really the best pitcher in the history of minor league baseball?
Check out Cory Giger’s detailed breakdown here for the answers.
(One correction on a stat in the video: Glasnow made 34 relief appearances for the Pirates in 2018, not 11. He made 11 starts with the Rays after the trade.)
