Rays' Austin Pruitt: Takes loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pruitt (7-5) took the loss in Friday's 13-6 extra-inning defeat at the hands of the Red Sox, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits and a walk over two-plus innings. He struck out three.

Pruitt played a pivotal hand in putting an end to the 15-inning marathon, allowing a fielder's choice groundout to Dustin Pedroia and then seeing three runs driven in by Andrew Benintendi and Mitch Moreland also go on his ledger after he'd exited.

Rays' Austin Pruitt: Set to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pruitt is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Red Sox, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Pruitt will step into the rotation for the injured Chris Archer (forearm), who won't be able to make his next start on schedule. Archer isn't expected to miss more than one start, so Pruitt will likely head back to a long relief role following Friday's outing. The 28-year-old has compiled a serviceable 4.19 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in eight starts for the Rays this season.

Rays' Austin Pruitt: Likely bound for bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pruitt is expected to move back to the bullpen when next available to pitch Saturday against the White Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Though he picked up the win Monday against the Royals after tossing six scoreless innings of one-hit ball, Pruitt has been rather erratic in his last seven turns through the rotation, registering a 4.50 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 40 innings. After former starter Matt Andriese (hip), who was activated from the 60-day disabled list earlier Monday, piggybacked Pruitt with three shutout innings of his own to close out the contest, Rays manager Kevin Cash apparently decided that he saw enough from Andriese to warrant inserting him back into the rotation. Pruitt could very well pick up additional starts this season as injuries and the Rays' schedule present opportunities, but now that he's due to work out of the bullpen for the foreseeable future, he'll lose most of his value in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats.

Rays' Austin Pruitt: Shuts out Royals over six frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pruitt (7-4) earned the victory behind six shutout innings, allowing just one hit and one walk while striking out six Monday against Kansas City.

Pruit rebounded fantastically from serving up 11 runs over his past two starts, including a four-homer disaster last time out against Toronto. This marks just the fifth time Pruitt has completed six innings in nine starts, and it's his fourth quality start of the season. Pruitt has a strong 55:16 K:BB; the question is whether he can keep the ball in the yard consistently -- as he did Monday.

Rays' Austin Pruitt: Crushed by Jays on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pruitt surrendered five runs on seven hits -- including four home runs -- over 3.2 innings Wednesday but escaped with a no-decision in a 7-6 loss to the Blue Jays. He struck out two.

It was the 27-year-old's shortest outing since moving into the rotation at the end of July, and Pruitt now has a 5.29 ERA and 2.1 HR/9 in 34 innings over six starts in the second half. The Rays remain only four games back of the Twins for the second wild-card spot in the AL, but with five other teams between them and a playoff berth, the front office may elect to keep rolling with Pruitt rather than replace him with top prospect Brent Honeywell and try to make a late surge in the standings. Pruitt will next take the mound Monday in Kansas City.
