Tyler Glasnow Contract

On Friday, it was revealed that right-handed starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow has signed a two-year contract extension with the Tampa Bay Rays, keeping him with the team through the 2024 season.

In 2023, Glasnow’s final year of arbitration eligibility, he will still be paid the $5.35 million he was scheduled to earn, and then in 2024, he will receive a substantial boost.

A record $25 million pay for the 2024 season is included in the deal extension. Before Glasnow’s new deal, the most the Rays had ever paid a player in a single season was $15 million, which Charlie Morton would get in 2019 and 2020.

After having Tommy John surgery in 2020, Glasnow is yet to make a 2022 pitching appearance. After Major League Baseball began cracking down on pitchers’ use of foreign substances on baseballs, commonly referred to as sticky stuff,’ he suffered a partial tear in his UCL and flexor strain in his throwing elbow last season.

This contract effectively buys out the first of Glasnow’s free agency years, as the 29-year-old was set to become a free agent following the 2023 season. Glasnow will reportedly receive $5.35 million in 2023 and $25 million in 2024 as part of the agreement, as reported by Ken Rosenthal.

To focus on his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery in August 2021, Glasnow has not made an appearance on the mound this season. Glasnow has a 4.04 ERA (103 ERA+) with a 2.92 K/BB ratio across five and a half seasons in the majors.

Since joining the Rays from the Pirates in a four-player deal in July 2018 that also involved Chris Archer, he has only worked in the starting rotation. In addition to getting Baz and outfielder Austin Meadows, the Rays benefited from the trade.
