2019 Fantasy Outlook
A shoulder injury prevented Glover from taking a real step forward last season, as he didn't make it back to the big leagues until August and was only able to throw 16.1 innings. His 3.31 ERA was the best mark of his career, though it's hard to say he deserved it, as it came with an ugly 9:10 K:BB. Walks had never been an issue for him in the past, so it's possible his control issues last season were a small-sample fluke or the lingering effects of the shoulder issue. He's never been able to consistently strike out big-league hitters, posting a mediocre 18.0% strikeout rate through 55.1 career innings. The lack of whiffs is a surprise given his upper-90s fastball and upper-80s slider, both of which have impressed evaluators. If he can get the most out of his stuff, he's a future high-leverage reliever, but a bet on him for saves this season seems ill advised given his track record and the names ahead of him.

Trying to avoid surgery
PWashington Nationals
Forearm
June 13, 2019
Glover, who recently met with Dr. James Andrews, got a PRP injection in his throwing elbow and will be shut down for at least six weeks, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
ANALYSIS
It sounds like his options were either Tommy John surgery or an injection and some rest, and he opted for the latter. Glover has not pitched since 2018, and it doesn't sound like a return to MLB action is in the cards anytime soon. His status will likely be updated in a couple months.

Mound Musings: The Bullpen Shuffle – National League

Brad Johnson looks at evolving bullpen assignments in the NL to see where they may be headed. Kenta Maeda could see the majority of saves in Los Angeles until Kenley Jansen returns.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
As Blake Treinen struggled to begin 2017, Glover took over and locked down two saves before suffering a left hip impingement in late April. He came back from the disabled list and worked his way into save opportunities again, wrapping up six successful calls before returning to the DL in June. Back and shoulder issues would ultimately prevent him from returning. The right-hander chose to rehab his rotator cuff instead of undergoing surgery, and he hopes to return during spring training. The 6-foot-5 hurler, who turns 25 in April, walked just 1.9 batters per nine and allowed only 0.47 HR/9, but his 7.9 K/9 comes up somewhat short for a late-inning arm. Though he has plenty of attractive attributes when healthy (high-90s velocity, 10.7 swinging-strike percentage last year), he'll start 2018 several spots back in the queue for Nationals save opportunities, with a suddenly stacked setup corps building a bridge to Sean Doolittle.
Glover, an eighth-round pick in 2015, raced through the Nationals' system last season on the strength of a fastball that touches 98 mph and a slider he sharpened considerably from his college days. His ERA isn't reflective of his work, as he faded a bit down the stretch and it was later revealed that he was shut down in September due to a torn labrum in his hip. The Nationals still see him as an important long-term bullpen piece and he should be healthy for the start of the season. With Mark Melancon signing with the Giants in free agency and the Nationals failing to sign Aroldis Chapman or Kenley Jansen, Glover could find himself competing for a key role at the back of the bullpen this spring.
