Austin Pruitt makes the International League All-Star Team

The former Coog is doing real well at Durham for the TB AAA Farm club. May get called up later this year and should definitely get a strong chance to make the team next spring.

Besides Pruitt, Daniel Poncedeleon made the Texas league All-Star Game, Patrick Weigel made the South Atlantic League All-Star Game, and Kyle Dowdy made the Midwest League All-Star Game.

“The biggest thing I have is proving people wrong," Pruitt said. "Ever since high school, college, everything, there are going to be people there that are going to tell you you can’t do something. I always enjoy proving those people wrong saying that. I feel like I can, you know.”

Consistency defines Bulls pitcher Pruitt

Pruitt ranks high in several categories within the International League based on his 18 starts. He’s fourth with 91 strikeouts and eighth with 102 1/3 innings, a number that would be higher if not for a rain-suspended development in his last outing after he threw three shutout innings Friday night.
