Brad Glenn picks up first major-league hit with Toronto Blue Jays

Watch former Wildcat Brad Glenn get his first big-league hit

Former Arizona Wildcat Brad Glenn picked up his first MLB hit Saturday night for the Toronto Blue Jays on this infield single to second base.

Glenn had been 0-for-13 with the Blue Jays since making his MLB debut on June 27th.

Since being selected in the 23rd round of the 2009 MLB Draft by Toronto, Glenn has slowly worked his way up the Blue Jays' system without particularly great numbers.

This year at Triple-A is what sealed the deal for Glenn, with that .377 batting average in 31 games with the Buffalo Bisons. He's been chosen as a Toronto organizational All-Star twice (2011 and '13), and made the All-Star teams in the league he was playing in both those seasons.

In four years at Arizona, Glenn hit .295, and blasted 43 balls out of Sancet Stadium. which is the second-most in program history behind new undergrad assistant coach Shelley Duncan. Glenn's 190 RBI our 5th-most in Arizona history, and he also holds the Wildcats record with 183 career strikeouts.

Glenn's been struggling with the Blue Jays, but hopefully he can hang on as Wildcats in the majors are few-and-far-between right now. Congrats on your first hit! Here's to a lot more in the future.

UPDATE (Sunday evening):

Brad Glenn was designated for assignment after the Blue Jays claimed Nolan Reimold off waivers, taking Glenn off the Toronto 40-man roster.
