One of the Phillies Top RHP Prospects, Kyle Glogoski, Is Ready to Get the ABL Season Started in Auckland, New Zealand

Who said we had to wait until February to start the 2020 baseball season? A Phillies prize right handed starting pitching prospect from New Zealand, Kyle Glogoski, looks to get a head start on his 2020 season, Thursday night, in Auckland, N.Z. We believe he might be on the mound to start for the Auckland Tuatara in the Australian Baseball League lid-lifter for its 2019-20 season. Read HERE.

Since New Zealand is 18 hours ahead of us in time and in the Southern Hemisphere, it will be 1:00 a.m. EST, early Thursday morning, here in Florida when the first game of the ABL season gets underway for us.

We watched Glogoski pitch for the Clearwater Threshers in the second half of the 2019 Florida State League season. In 11 starts for them, he pitched to a 2-2 record with a 1.88 ERA in 52.2 inning striking out 45. In none of Kyle’s starts for the Threshers did he allow more than two earned runs.

Of those Threshers starting pitchers who threw over 50 innings, he was first in allowing only two home runs and only 37 hits. In his first start for Clearwater on June 22 after getting called up from Lakewood, he pitched the first, five-innings of a nine-inning combined  no-hitter.

“Hard to believe Harry” but the 2020 Phillies baseball season will be already starting on Thursday at one in morning in the Eastern time zone, if  20-year-old, Kiwi Kyle Glogoski is toeing the rubber in Auckland, New Zealand.
