Prior to Join Wood on the DL

Mark Prior expected to be placed on the DL according to a report in the Chicago Tribune

On the same day the Cubs announced Kerry Wood would be placed on the DL for the 11th time in his career, a late report in the Tribune stated the Cubs “are expected to put Mark Prior on the disabled list for for the ninth time in his six-year career”. Paul Sullivan goes on to mention if Prior is “deemed healthy, the Cubs could send him to Triple-A Iowa while still paying his $3.75 million salary.”

Regardless of what happens with the rest of the careers of Kerry Wood and Mark Prior, the two will be forever linked together as two pitchers with bright futures and promising careers ahead of them that could simply not stay healthy.

Prior is still scheduled to pitch against the Rockies on Wednesday.
