Mark Prior attempts another comeback

5 Comments

Mark Prior is trying to make a comeback.

We
see this almost every year now, and every year it ends badly, but that
has yet to deter the former phenom.  He’ll work out for major league
clubs at USC tomorrow. According to Tracy Ringolsby, most teams will
have a scout in attendance.

Prior, of course, was once talked about in close to the same way
we’re all now talking about Stephen Strasburg. He got the big bonus and
he made the big splash, going 18-6 with a 2.43 ERA in 2003. But then, be
it due to overwork, poor mechanics, bad juju or the whammy, developed
shoulder problems and made a mere 57 big
league starts after that.

It’d be a nice story if he could make a
comeback. Just don’t hold your breath.
