Prior placed on the 7-day DL with groin injury

Updated (Wed., 2 p.m.): One day after making his first appearance with AAA Scranton, Mark Prior has landed on the seven-day disabled list, reported last night via Twitter. Times beat reporter Ben Shpigel followed up this afternoon: Prior has been sidelined by a groin injury, but Mark Newman, the club’s senior vice president of baseball operations, says the injury is “not serious.” Based on Prior’s injury history, I was concerned this trip to the DL was shoulder-related, but it sounds as though Prior could be back on the mound in a week or two.

    Well, it was nice while it lasted.

      He had a good run

      • Gonzo

        He’ll be remembered.

  • Ryan

    i thought that was just for concussions?

    • Benjamin Kabak

      Only at the Major League level. The Minors have their own 7-game DL.

        ohhh alright thanks Ben

  • Marshall Brown

    well I just got one banging my head against the wall on the inevitable news.

    I wasn’t aware of Mark Prior’s injury history. Has he had arm trouble in the past?

    • Gonzo

      He’s an iron man. Prolly just a phantom DL move.

    • B-Rando

      Not sure if this is a serious comment…

    • Sabermetrically Challenged

      Technically shoulder trouble.

  • daddy

    just another failed prospect.

    • Gonzo

      Proves that this club just doesn’t know how to handle pitching prospects.

      • daddy

        that’s right.


  • Matt Imbrogno

    Any chance this is just a rest + roster space move?

  • Gonzo

    Mary Carey strikes again!

  • Fair Weather Freddy

    Another article filled with dumb comments

    • Irony

      • Irony

        Actually, who am I to talk?

        • Irony

          I am labeled properly.

  • Dr. O

    nothing serious, NON STORY. *crosses fingers, prays for first time since Christmas 1987*

  • Irony

    Even though I have zero value

    Prediction: I don’t believe the Yankees should be testing Prior by pitching him two innings or on successive days, but trying to keep him healthy his first year back.

    Prediction: If Prior can stay healthy, he’ll be a very good reliever — maybe even a lockdown closer, whether it’s for the Yankees or someone else (a la Oliver or Contreras, only better).
