Diamondbacks optioned RHP Zeke Spruill to Triple-A Reno.

Spruill was up for a day to help an overtaxed bullpen, allowing two runs over four relief innings in a loss to the Indians Wednesday. He returns to a 6.75 ERA in 57 1/3 innings at Reno.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Zeke Spruill from Triple-A Reno.

Spruill takes the roster spot of catcher Jordan Pacheco. He has a 6.75 ERA in 57 1/3 innings at Reno and will serve as a bullpen arm in Arizona.
Jun 25 - 6:56 PM

Zeke Spruill struggled in a losing effort against the Mets in the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader, allowing three runs on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Friday’s rainout pressed Spruill into emergency duty, and at least did his job by keeping the Diamondbacks in the game. He’s likely to return to Triple-A Reno afterwards where he will continue to function as organizational rotation depth.
May 25 - 8:06 PM

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson announced Saturday that Zeke Spruill will start the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets.

The 24-year-old owns a 2-1 record, 4.72 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 27/9 K/BB ratio over 34 1/3 innings at Triple-A Reno. He can safely be ignored for fantasy purposes.
May 24 - 2:46 PM

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Zeke Spruill to Triple-A Reno.

The 24-year-old hurler appeared in six games with the D'Backs in 2013, posting a 5.56 ERA, 1.94 WHIP and 9/5 K/BB ratio over 11 1/3 innings. He's expected to stay stretched out as a starter in the minor leagues.
Mar 9 - 5:04 PM

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Zeke Spruill to Triple-A Reno.

Spruill allowed 10 runs (six earned) in seven innings over two starts during his most recent stint with the big club. He'll likely be back when rosters expand in September.

Zeke Spruill lasted just three innings in a loss Sunday to the Mets.

It was just his second start after making his rotation debut last week. He gave up one run on six hits and had two walks before exiting. Spruill will be moved back to bullpen once Trevor Cahill returns from the disabled list.

Zeke Spruill gave up five runs and three homers in four innings to take the loss Thursday against the Rangers.

Spruill was called up before the game, and he'll be sent back down to Triple-A now. If he sees action with the Diamondbacks again this season, it'll probably be as a reliever in September.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Zeke Spruill from Triple-A Reno.

Spruill has a nice-looking 2.68 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 104 innings this year in the minor leagues, but that's hiding a troubling 54/36 K/BB ratio. He's not a good fantasy bet for his start Thursday against the Rangers.
Thu, Aug 1, 2013 12:43:00 PM

Zeke Spruill will make a spot start for the Diamondbacks on Thursday against the Rangers.

Spruill, 23, has a 2.68 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 54/36 K/BB ratio in 104 innings this year in the minor leagues. He is a poor fantasy option against the dangerous Texas offense.
Wed, Jul 31, 2013 05:53:00 PM

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Zeke Spruill to Triple-A Reno.

Spruill was called up last week and posted a 2.08 ERA over four relief appearances. He was acquired from the Braves in the Justin Upton deal and will continue to be stretched out as a starter in the minors.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Zeke Spruill from Triple-A Reno.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move. Spruill, 23, was acquired from the Braves in the Justin Upton deal and owns a 3.12 ERA and 44/31 K/BB ratio in 89 1/3 innings over 14 starts this season between Double- and Triple-A. He figures to pitch in long relief.
Fri, Jun 21, 2013 05:50:00 PM

Diamondbacks acquired RHP Zeke Spruill from the Braves in the seven-player Justin Upton trade.

Spruill posted an underwhelming 3.67 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 106/46 K/BB ratio across 161 2/3 innings last season at Double-A Mississippi. The tall 23-year-old right-hander is a long way from the major league level.
Thu, Jan 24, 2013 01:11:00 PM

Braves purchased the contract of RHP Zeke Spruill from Double-A Mississippi.

The move protects him from December's Rule 5 Draft. Spruill, 23, posted a 3.67 ERA and 106/46 K/BB ratio over 161 2/3 innings in 27 starts at the Double-A level this season. While he probably needs another year in the minors, he has a chance to make it as a backend starter.
