Mark Prior tosses scoreless inning at Triple-A for Rangers

Sep 6, 2010, 12:02 PM EDT

Mark Prior signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers last week and made his Triple-A debut yesterday, tossing a scoreless inning with two strikeouts for Oklahoma City.
Prior, who convinced the Rangers to sign him after pitching well and showing good velocity as a reliever for the Orange County Flyers of the independent Golden Baseball League, loaded the bases with two singles and a walk before wriggling out of the fourth-inning jam.
It was his first action in the majors or (non-independent) minors since way back in 2006 and the Rangers seemingly didn’t sign Prior with the intention of calling him up this season, but he could be a relief option in Texas or elsewhere next year.
