Mark Prior Not Joining the Red Sox

The Red Sox were one of about a half dozen teams that recently watched former Cubs phenom Mark Prior work out in Arizona. According to a team source, the Sox are not interested in signing him.

Prior was drafted No. 2 overall by the Cubs and rushed to the majors the following season. Prior dazzled in his rookie year, going 6-6 with a 3.32 ERA and 147 strikeouts in 116.2 innings. The next year was his best in the pros, as he went 18-6 with a 2.43 ERA and 245 strikeouts over 30 starts. Along with fellow phenom Kerry Wood, Prior helped the Cubs come within one game of a World Series berth in 2003.

As we all know, that did not happen.

Since 2003, Prior has endured injury after injury, and hasn’t even pitched in the major leagues since 2006.
