Ever since his Tommy John surgery in 2021, Glasnow has gradually increased his power. While earlier his sliders were closer to his four-seam in pace, he has slowly increased its pace. This certainly helped in 2023 when the ace struck out 162 hitters in 120 innings. The video has hints of Glasnow gaining even more stability in those pitches.
