Working back from elbow soreness
POakland Athletics  A+
March 27, 2018
Ruiz gave up two runs in six innings in major-league spring training games with six strikeouts. He was eased back into action after finishing the 2017 season with elbow discomfort, OaklandClubhouse reports.
ANALYSIS
Ruiz was a disappointment last season after the former top prospect in Cuba signed with Oakland. He had a 5.17 ERA with just a 24:12 K:BB ratio in 34.2 innings at High-A despite being much older than most of his competition. Still, it may have taken him awhile to adjust to the U.S. and an injured elbow could have been a factor. He's a prospect to watch to see if he rebounds dramatically in 2018. He'll likely begin the season again at High-A.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Ruiz was regarded as perhaps Cuba's top pitching prospect when he defected in May 2015. He won the rookie of the year award in the Serie Nacional in 2012-13. He has a fastball that can reach the mid-90s along with plus breaking pitches. After inking a minor league deal with Oakland, the 22-year-old could debut sometime in the next two years -- the organization likely hopes so as a starter. Keep him on AL-only fantasy watch lists.
