After being held back in extended spring training because of a back injury, Tyler Glasnow made his season debut Friday night for Class A Advanced Bradenton. The right-hander threw five scoreless innings, but St. Lucie came back to defeat Bradenton, 13-4.

Glasnow, the Pirates' No. 3 prospect and No. 26 overall, struck out six batters. He allowed two hits and three walks.


Glasnow broke out last season as a 19-year old with Class A West Virginia. He posted a 2.18 ERA and led all Pirates Minor Leagues with 164 strikeouts in 111 1/3 innings.

Josh Bell, the Pirates' No. 6 prospect and No. 71 overall, went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI in the loss. He is hitting .280 in 19 games this season.
