Dallas Baptist commit. 5-foot-10, 180-pound, strong frame. The slick-fielding shortstop has good footwork and glove action, excellent exchanges in the mid-line of his body. Has excellent arm strength and can throw from different angles. Can field and throw on the run, showing the ability to play all three infield positions. The right-handed hitter starts from a tall upright stance, lowers himself with a gliding, hover-like stride, walking away from his hands to land in an athletic hitting position. Glowenke has strength at contact, the barrel stays in the zone a long time and has gap power.

2020 DRAFT:An elbow injury limited the everyday Patriot shortstop to DH duties for the entire 2020 season, but that didn't slow Glowenke down from leading the team in batting average (.415) and on-base (.458). This follows his performance in the Cape last summer when he posted a solid .296/.342/.385 line over 39 games. A below average runner with fringe arm strength before the elbow surgery, Glowenke looks more and more like a future third or second baseman, rather than a long-term shortstop. This could be an issue for evaluators who could view him as a tweener so long as the pre-game pop isn't blossoming into game time production (there's still plenty of loud contact, but the extra base damage has been limited in his college career). On the positive side, Glowenke has found more consistency in his timing at the plate, showing better balance through his pronounced leg lift and a slightly smaller stride, keeping him fluid and his barrel on plane with more consistency. He has reduced his strikeout rate while maintaining his solid on-base production. If he can stick up the middle – either at shortstop or with a slide over at second base – or if he can up his extra-base production while manning third, he has a chance to be a solid traditional two-hole stick with a dependable glove. Expect Glowenke to be considered around the fifth round this summer.

8/13/19: After slashing.328/.429/.467 for DBU this spring, Glowenke posted a solid .296/.342/.385 line over 39 games and 152 plate appearances for Bourne this summer. Physically, Glowenke is looking more and more like a future third baseman, rather than a long-term shortstop. This could be an issue for evaluators who could view him as a tweener so long as the pre-game pop isn’t blossoming into game time production (there’s still plenty of loud contact, but the extra base damage was limited this summer for Glowenke). On the positive side, the DBU product has found more consistency in his timing at the plate, showing better balance through his pronounced leg lift and a slightly smaller stride, keeping him fluid and his barrel on plane with more consistency. He has massively reduced his strikeout rate while maintaining his solid on-base production, to boot. If Glowenke can stick up the middle – either at shortstop or with a slide over at second base – or if he can up his extra-base production while manning third, he’s an interesting early Day 2 target with a chance to be a solid traditional two-hole stick with a dependable glove.
