Originally posted on Pirates Prospects  |  Last updated 4/7/13
Three more pitchers make their season debut today, two of them can be considered sleep prospects, though they are on the opposite ends of the chart. Phil Irwin pitched great last year and was added to the 40-man roster this off-season, putting himself on the map for Pirates fans as a possible call-up during this season. On the opposite end is 19-year-old Tyler Glasnow, who pitched well also last year, but he did it in the Gulf Coast League, so he is all about projection. Bradenton has off today. They resume action Monday night on the road. For a look at the possible starters over the next few weeks, please check out our Probable Pitchers Chart. A full recap of yesterday’s action can be found here. Tyler Glasnow is a breakout candidate this year.
