Red Sox acquired RHP Zeke Spruill from the Diamondbacks for RHP Myles Smith.
Spruill was designated for assignment earlier in the week, so the Diamondbacks decided to flip him for whatever they could get before letting him walk. The 25-year-old posted a 3.57 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 14/4 K/BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings with the D'Backs in 2014. Dec 12 - 8:16 PM

Diamondbacks designated RHP Zeke Spruill for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for the newly-signed Yosmany Tomas. Spruill holds a 4.24 ERA over 34 career major league innings and posted a 6.04 mark last season at Triple-A.
Dec 8 - 6:50 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Zeke Spruill from Triple-A Reno.

Spruill has allowed five earned runs on 13 hits in 9 1/3 innings this season at the major league level and his Triple-A numbers are also ugly. He'll be a mop-up man.
Sep 9 - 5:04 PM

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.
Jun 26 - 4:33 PM

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.
Mon, Aug 12, 2013 05:59:00 PM

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.
Sun, Aug 11, 2013 07:48:00 PM

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.
Thu, Aug 1, 2013 10:47:00 PM

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.
Sat, Jun 29, 2013 11:01:00 AM

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.
