View Full Version : Mark Prior To Audition For MLB Teams

06-28-2010, 11:13 PM
Right-handed pitcher Mark Prior, who came out of USC with a hype along the lines of Stephen Strasburg, is still trying to piece his injury-plagued career back together.

Prior, 29, will work out for major league clubs at USC on Wednesday. Prior, who has not pitched in the big leagues since going 1-6 in nine games with the Cubs in 2006, has been working with USC pitching coach Tom House, the former big-league pitching coach who has worked with Prior since his high school days in San Diego.

He is still only 29. Lets see what he can do

06-28-2010, 11:17 PM
Personally, I think he's done. He's just way to injury prone.

06-28-2010, 11:28 PM
Wow, just 29.

06-28-2010, 11:30 PM
How awesome would it be to see him become what he was hyped up to be at this age?

06-28-2010, 11:32 PM
I can't believe he's still only 29

06-28-2010, 11:32 PM
the mets should sign him before anyone else

06-28-2010, 11:32 PM

id love for the yankees to take a shot with him. he could be good out of the bullpen i think

06-28-2010, 11:34 PM
I hope he makes it.

06-28-2010, 11:37 PM
Look for Ned Colletti to sign him for 500k

06-28-2010, 11:38 PM
I hope he makes it back. Being a Cub fan it's depressing to think about what could have been

06-29-2010, 12:40 AM

06-29-2010, 12:58 AM
I'd take him and throw him into the rotation today

06-29-2010, 01:09 AM
Rooting for the guy to succeed.

06-29-2010, 01:31 AM
Good luck Mark. I hope you make it back and succeed. I can't believe he is only 29. Seems like he should be 50.

good luck mark. fellow canadian, i hope he makes it back successfully!

Can't beleive he is only 29. I'd take a flier on him for the right price.

Mark Prior is set to make a comeback. hes going to have a workout session with loads of mlb scouts to see if hes got anything left in the tank.

personally, if he shows any promise, i would love for my team the yankees to take a shot at him. On PTI they said that some famous website (cant remember) showed the best prospects in the last 20 years. Stephen Strasburg was ranked 2nd behind one Mark Prior. the promise that he showed several years ago makes me think some team wont even think twice of offering him a contract if he shows he can throw the ball over the plate with some movement. over 200 strikeouts and 18 walks in three years of college was no joke.

of course there is a great possibility he has nothing left and will be sitting at home. this could turn out to be like the pedro situation last year with the phillies. it could also be like striking gold for a team that is in need for some bolstering of the rotation. We'll just have to wait and see what happens for him and Ill wish him the best of luck to try and get his career back together. hes only 29.

There's already a thread about this.

Yankees Suck

He is just a roster space waste. He might be good for the O's or any other team completely out of the playoff race.

07-01-2010, 01:14 AM
That would be so ****ing awesome if he came back and dominated

Too bad it will not happen

Padres Son

He's done. He was in the Padres system in '07 and '08. I've spent way too much time wondering "what if..." about the guy only to hear about injury after injury and setback after setback. I don't think he'll ever pitch in the big leagues again.

07-01-2010, 06:18 PM
if this comeback fails I'd like to see him latch on with an independent league team and see what happens, sometimes that helps a player derailed like him....

07-01-2010, 07:36 PM
Umm one question, why? Your done dude...

07-01-2010, 10:10 PM
Who knows the guy might be able to come back I'm rooting for him.

07-02-2010, 12:13 PM
He is still only 29. Lets see what he can do
Exactly; That's actually amazing. He's been around forever it seems.

I wish him luck - I always have and I always will. His potential was through the roof. I'd love to see him make it back.

07-02-2010, 01:23 PM
ehh he's done. but good luck to him

07-02-2010, 01:29 PM
lol hes gonna come to my redsox and get hurt the first time he pitches

it would sum up the red sox year & his career at once lol

07-02-2010, 01:33 PM
He does this every single year! Time to hang it up bub!

07-02-2010, 01:40 PM
