Tampa Bay’s Tyler Glasnow and Austin Meadows are on a must-see tear

The Tampa Bay Rays are so fascinating at this point you could look up and down their roster and struggle to find a player who isn’t intriguing in some way, shape or form.

From the reigning Cy Young winner in Blake Snell to Jose Alvarado’s otherworldly fastball movement to Tommy Pham’s penchant for speaking his mind, the American League East leaders have no shortage of storylines. But you don’t just get off to an 12-4 start on narratives alone. That’s where the duo of outfielder Austin Meadows and starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow come in.

Once the top prospects in the Pirates’ pipeline, the 24-year-old Meadows and 25-year-old Glasnow are showing flashes of true stardom in Tampa Bay after being acquired in a deal that sent then-Rays’ ace Chris Archer to Pittsburgh at the 2018 trade deadline.


A reminder that it isn’t just eccentric pitcher usage that has made the Rays rise to the position they’re in today.
