MLB ETA Risk Factor OFP Realistic Role Video
2021 Very High 50 40; 5th outfielder Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 He has no problem putting wood on the ball and seems at ease in the box, hitting foul balls and with more refined understanding of the strike zone than most players at his level. He can beat out some balls hit to infielders, but a low-power approach drags on his ability to get on base.
Power 30 Slight frame provides only slightly more raw power; shoots himself in the foot with poor swing timing; attacks pitches at front of zone; often strikes ball with the end of the bat; may post higher power numbers than expected thanks to speed; will not be a home run producer.
Baserunning/Speed 65 High-effort runner; good-not-great times; uses long strides on the bases and the speed transfers well to the field, I clocked him at 4.25 on a wide turn.
Glove 60 Very rangy defender in center; range and willingness to dive compensates for mediocre routes and shows #GRIT; the actual glovework is unrefined at the moment; I can see him being plus in the field if he is able to use all his skills to greatest effect but merely average if he cannot.
Arm 45 The arm strength is nothing remarkable and there is more loft in his throw than I wanted to see; it will work fine in center but may not in a corner.
Overall

Pruitt doesn't appear on prospect lists any more for a reason. He will need to overcome serious mechanical issues in his swing to make it onto a major league roster. His defense will float the profile. If everything comes comes together and he optimizes his swing and defensive portfolios, he could make a second division regular who hits at the bottom of a lineup, but that seems very unlikely.
