Mark Prior has graduated from extended spring training to Boston’s Triple-A affiliate in Pawtucket, the team revealed Friday.

Prior will work as a reliever with the PawSox. According to WEEI’s Rob Bradford, he was being clocked at 90-92 mph in extended spring games and his curve “showed good improvement over [the] last month.”

The 31-year-old Prior hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2006 due to a series of shoulder problems. He made 11 appearances in the Yankees’ minor league system last season, amassing a 2.25 ERA in 12 innings.

    What’s worse,
    A) Harrelson’s rant + advils
    B) The Tiger’s announcer after in Crosby’s debut he strikes out the side, camera points toward Crosby’s family, and says that they are “f***ing it up.”

    At least that is what I heard listening to MLB’s free game of the day, right after the top of the first ended.
