On August 2, in front of his friends and family in Houston, Texas, he had an incredible game, in which he kept the formidable Houston Astros scoreless for 6 and a third innings and was credited with a 3-0 victory.
In spite of the fact that he had a 5.65 ERA when he started the year, he was able to improve his record to 6-2 with a save despite the fact that he had allowed a lot of runs early on in the season.
The win brought his record to 6-2. He finished the year with a record of 7-5, a 5.31 ERA, one save, and 83 innings worked across 30 games, eight of which he started.
Pruitt spent part of the year pitching in the minor leagues, where he posted a record of 3-0 with a 3.18 ERA in 14 games with the Durham Bulls of AAA, and in the main leagues, where he made 23 relief appearances for the Rays and posted a record of 2-3 with a 4.65 ERA and 4 saves in 2018.
Pruitt was frequently used as the “bulk man” in bullpen games, which was a strategy that the Rays enthusiastically embraced during that season.
As a result, he logged a total of 69 2/3 innings, which was significantly more than a random reliever who pitched the same number of games would have accumulated.
In 2019, he had a total of 14 appearances with the Rays, two of which were starts, and he pitched 47 innings while compiling a record of 3-0 and a 4.40 ERA.
As a swingman at Durham, he played in 18 games and had a record of 3-3 with a 5.40 ERA. Although the Rays qualified for the postseason as a wild card team, Pruitt was not on the roster for either of those teams.
On January 9, 2020, he was included in a transaction that sent him to the Houston Astros in exchange for two players from the minor leagues: Peyton Battenfield and Cal Stevenson.
