2017 Fantasy Outlook
Ruiz was regarded as perhaps Cuba's top pitching prospect when he defected in May 2015. He won the rookie of the year award in the Serie Nacional in 2012-13. He has a fastball that can reach the mid-90s along with plus breaking pitches. After inking a minor league deal with Oakland, the 22-year-old could debut sometime in the next two years -- the organization likely hopes so as a starter. Keep him on AL-only fantasy watch lists.
