Pruitt enters his 3rd varsity season pitching for Sun Valley in 2014. He pitched 50.2 innings in 2013, going 4-1 with a save, three complete games, 43 strikeouts and a 1.26 ERA. He was a Carpenter Cup selection in 2013 tossing two scoreless innings.
4/28/14 Pruitt has a lean frame with plenty of room to add strength. He utilizes a high-3/4 slot with loose, clean arm action. He has improved in every aspect since last seen in game action the previous summer (and quit pulling double-duty as catcher). Delivery is cleaner, he's more under control, repeats better, and is throwing more strikes. FB 83-86, touch 87. Pretty straight, but has life and there's more in the tank as he gets stronger. Held velo into the seventh (sat 84, touched 86 twice). Has feel for CB at 69-72. 74-76 CH still work-in-progress; had occasional sink/fade, but often spiked gloveside. Long arm action, but quick feet on pick.
2/16/14 Pruitt stood out as one of the top arms at the event. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound righty has an athletic frame and works quickly. He showcased a fastball that sat 86-87 out of a high 3/4 arm slot. Pruitt was free and easy throughout his bullpen indicating additional velocity is there if needed. The junior also displayed a 72 mph 11/5 breaking curveball, a 78 mph changeup thrown at fastball arm speed with arm side run, and a 77 mph knuckle ball.
8/25/13 Pruitt is an athletic backstop with good agility and a strong arm. He showcased pop times of 1.93-2.00 on throws of 73 mph from the crouch. Pruitt displayed a 2.05 in game pop time catching a would be base stealer and flashed a quick release on a snap throw to 1B. The right-handed hitter uses a square stance and a toe tap trigger to create a bat exit velocity of 81 mph. Pruitt displayed a flat bat path and the ability to barrel the baseball consistently in batting practice. He went on to go 1-for-4 in game action at Widener University. The two-way prospect also showcased a fastball that sat 82-84 while touching 85 mph. He struggled with command of his 72 mph changeup, 68 mph curveball and 67 mph knuckle ball. Pruitt showed good life to his fastball early, but went away from the pitch in subsequent innings.
6/12/13 Pruitt impressed as a potential two-way player at the next level. Working from a high 3/4 arm slot, Pruitt sat 83-85 with a three pitch assortment of complimentary pitches. His 11/5 breaking curveball sat 66-68, while he also commanded a 73 mph changeup and 70 mph knuckle ball. Pruitt also worked out defensively behind the plate showcasing pop times of 2.03-2.09 on throws of 72 mph out of the crouch.
