High school resume
Glancy had a huge junior season at the Red Bank Catholic in 2018, working his way up to the Shore Sports Network All-Shore First team. However, as a senior, Glancey suffered a broken bone in his hand and missed half of the season, putting some of his numbers back. However, he smashed 11 home runs in the final half-year of his career with the Caseys and came back in time to take the RBC Championship to the Shore Conference Tournament title in 2019. In a championship game in Lakewood’s ShoreTown Park – home of Phillies Class High-A Dependent – Glancy smoked a home smoke that was clocked at 104 miles per hour off the racket by pitch technology.
After high school
After some ups and downs with college commitments, Glancey landed at St John and made a great early impression by going 11-for-26 (.423) with three home runs in eight games before the 2020 season was called off due to COVID-19. However, the 2021 season was a struggle, with Glancey rocking twice in Saint John’s first three games and not deepening again the rest of the year while finishing with a batting average of 0.212. Glancey made a comeback last season by scoring 11 home runs, including a hat-trick against Hofstra in March. Glancy also hit three hurdles in a game when he was young at RBC.
Why do you like the difference
Glancy is an under-the-radar target for a few teams and the type of player likely to get hurt from halving the draft from 40 innings in 2019 to 20 in each of the past two seasons. However, he has shown enough tools since his junior year of high school to get scouts to follow his lead and has made some real progress in 2022. He hits the ball really hard when he squares it, and while he’s not an exceptional sprinter, he’s athletic enough to be good in a corner Off the field and manages the rules appropriately.
Why might the difference be hesitant
Glancey’s record is inconsistent, which stems from swinging and losing a fair amount. This past spring, he made 45 in 252 board appearances, and while his 17.8 hits percentage isn’t necessarily obvious, he led the team with 45 knockouts and averages just above the front desks you’d like to see from an outside hitter. Great East. Glancy has also stared seven times in 17 games in the MLB Draft League this summer, so the team that takes it on will either love enough latent power to live with the hits and side profile of the corner, or believe there’s a fix for Glancy’s swing. A comprehensive approach that will lead to more contact.
While Glancey isn’t on much of the radar heading into Sunday, Glancey could be a good day three target for teams looking for a player with some upside who might be willing to sign and start their career.
