If you are a fan of spin rate, Pruitt is one of your favorites to follow. He has some good spin, particularly on his curveball, and worked both as a starter and a reliever in his rookie year. Oddly enough, he did much better as a starter as he held opponents to a .244 average and .293 OBP over eight starts with a 4.19 ERA. As a reliever, those numbers ballooned to a .350 average and .403 OBP. He was hurt by the long ball as a starter as eight of his 11 homers came in those outings. All in all, it was an odd year, but he showed enough to have a role on the Rays' 2018 staff, maybe even in the rotation should the team trade Jake Odorizzi or another starter.

  2. Austin Pruitt 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Pruitt performed decently for Triple-A Durham, where he spent the entirety of the 2016 season as a starter. He made 28 starts in which he registered a 3.76 ERA and 3.53 FIP in 162.2 innings. The minor league veteran has earned as a reputation as a reliable strike thrower, which was demonstrated through his solid 1.5 BB/9 in 2016. On the other hand, his crucial need to throw strikes comes in part from an inability to miss a lot of bats, which has showed in his often unspectacular K/9 rates. He needs to prove last year's great 8.2 K/9 is more than a fluke. At 27 years old, Pruitt likely is what he is at this point in his career: a low-ceiling pitcher with the potential to eventually fill out the bottom of a rotation or serve as a swing man. Additionally, the Rays liked him enough to add him to their 40-man roster in the fall. AL-only owners should keep an eye on him, as he could be a replacement option if the Rays' rotation is hit by injuries.
