Prospect Spotlight

Sprengel had a sharp pro debut after going to the Rays in the 18th round last year. The lefty pitched to a 1.31 ERA in 17 relief outings between two levels, holding opposing batters to a .208 average-against. He creates a tough angle to same-side hitters and has the tools to be an effective matchup specialist. Sprengel’s fastball works at 91-to-94 mph from a slingy low arm-slot, backed up by a deceptive slider that shows late off the heater.
