From the Wire….Prior Agrees to Terms with the Padres

According to reports on ESPN and Fox Sports, Mark Prior has agreed to a 1-year deal with the San Diego Padres. The Major League deal does not include an option for 2009 and with incentives could pay Prior more than $3 million in 2008.

Buster Olney stated the official announcement is expected later on Wednesday and that Prior is throwing on flat ground and has thrown without pain since his surgery.

The Rangers and Astros reportedly cooled on Prior last week after reviewing his medical records.
