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, MiLB.com 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.

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

    just another failed prospect.

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

    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).
