Rangers sign Mark Prior to minor league contract

Sep 3, 2010, 5:42 PM EDT

MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers have signed Mark Prior to a minor-league contract and will assign him to Triple-A, but adds that “this is a long-term project and he is not expected to help the Rangers this season.”
Prior hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2006 and hasn’t been both healthy and effective since 2005, but has been working as a reliever for the Orange County Flyers of the independent Golden League.
Who knows what he has left in his injury ravaged arm at this point, but Prior is still just 29 years old and the reports on his velocity out of the bullpen were relatively promising. Considering all he’s been through, it would be nice to see him emerge as a quality reliever in 2011.

    DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK! Seriously, don’t.
