Mark Prior is expected to "attempt one more comeback," according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
Prior, now 31, spent some of last season in the Yankees' organization. He worked his velocity back up to the low-90s, but battled shoulder discomfort, a groin issue, a bruised forearm and other maladies during the season. He recently had sports hernia surgery, which he is rehabbing in San Diego, and is hoping to audition for teams next month. Prior, the No. 2 pick in the 2001 draft, posted a 2.25 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 15/4 K/BB ratio over just 12 minor league innings last year. He hasn't pitched in a major league game since 2006. Don't count out a spring training invitation, however, if his workouts go well in March. As always, he's a terrible bet to ever stay healthy.
