Arizona Fall League Kicks off today....

The Pirates had two stories today with the Arizona Fall league kicking off.  One story was Josh Bell, a 2011 2nd round draft pick, making his first professional start at 1st Base.  Bell went 0-4 in the game, striking out from both sides of the plate and grounding out once from each side of the plate.

The other story was super pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow who didn't even get out of the first inning while throwing only 29 pitches.  He struck a batter out, walked 3 batters, allowed a run to score on a throwing error on his behalf.  This pink parallel sticker auto ran me $13 delivered many many many months ago.  I grabbed another (with a different picture) that I will show off in the future.

Glasnow will likely begin his season in AA for 2015 and will likely be up in Pittsburgh come 2016 when he turns 22.
