Pruitt and Bryan De La Cruz were traded from the Astros to the Marlins on Wednesday in exchange for Yimi Garcia, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports. Pruitt was designated for assignment by the Astros earlier in the day, but he was instead shipped to Miami rather than being exposed to the waiver wire. The right-hander appeared in only two games for Houston this season and allowed two runs on three hits with a strikeout and zero walks over 2.2 innings.
The Astros designated Pruitt for assignment Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Houston cut Pruitt to make room on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster for reliever Rafael Montero, who was acquired along with Kendall Graveman from the Mariners on Tuesday. After missing the first three and a half months of the season while recovering from September surgery to repair a fractured elbow, Pruitt struggled to regain form upon being activated from the injured list. In his two appearances out of the Houston bullpen, Pruitt gave up a pair of runs on three hits, including two solo home runs.
Pruitt (0-1) allowed one earned run on one hit across two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss to Cleveland on Wednesday. Pruitt made his second appearance of the season Wednesday after missing the first half with an elbow injury. He surrendered a solo home run to Cesar Hernandez in the seventh inning, which ended up being the winning run. The 31-year-old has allowed a run in each of his appearances this year. He hadn't pitched since 2019, when he had a 4.40 ERA in 47 innings.
Pruitt (elbow) was activated from the 60-day injured list prior to Friday's game against the White Sox, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Pruitt missed the entire first half after undergoing elbow surgery last September. He began a rehab assignment in mid-June, and wound up getting seven appearances under his belt in total without suffering any setbacks. He'll join the Astros' bullpen Friday, and when he's entered into a game, he'll be making his first big-league appearance since 2019 with the Rays.
Pruitt (elbow) pitched three innings Friday in his sixth rehab outing and is expected to be activated immediately following the All-Star break, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports. The righty's 30-day rehab assignment expires July 15, so it's safe to assume he'll be with the Astros and active to start Friday's series in Chicago. After a rocky start to the rehab, Pruitt has pitched six scoreless innings over his last three games and has struck out three without issuing a walk, signaling that he's ready to rejoin the big-league bullpen. He'll be getting his first MLB action since 2019, when he posted a 4.40 ERA in 47 innings with the Rays.
