Pruitt cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday. Pruitt was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Thursday but will remain in the organization with the Triple-A club. The right-hander has posted a 2.45 ERA and 0.63 WHIP in 3.2 innings across three appearances at Triple-A Jacksonville and will likely be in the mix if the Marlins need an extra bullpen arm.
Pruitt was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Thursday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Pruitt was relatively effective across three relief appearances during this stint with the major-league club, as he allowed a run on three hits and no walks while striking out four in 3.2 innings. His removal from the 40-man roster will make room for right-hander Paul Campbell, who was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Thursday.
Pruitt's contract was selected by the Marlins prior to Friday's game against the Reds, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Pruitt was DFA'd by Miami on Aug. 5 but wound up heading to Triple-A Jacksonville after clearing waivers. He'll now return to the big leagues with Cody Poteet (knee) moving to the 60-day IL in order to make room on the 40-man roster. Pruitt has logged just 3.2 major-league innings this year, allowing two runs on a pair of solo homers.
Pruitt was designated for assignment Thursday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. The righty has appeared in one game for Miami since being acquired at the trade deadline, pitching a scoreless inning Friday against the the Yankees. It's unclear whether Pruitt's demotion is a long-term move, or if he's just temporarily off the 26-man and 40-man rosters to make room for Thursday's starter Braxton Garrett.
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.
