Prior = Juan Gonzalez?

Postby tms298 » Mon Mar 14, 2005 6:51 pm

From Yahoo:
Update: Prior will miss his next spring start Tuesday because of inflammation in his elbow, which developed after his first outing, the Cubs' Website reports.

Recommendation: Prior, who did not pitch until June last year because of problems with his Achilles and elbow, had an MRI exam done Sunday on his right elbow. "There is no damage to the ligament and no damage to the ulnar nerve", Cubs general manager Jim Hendry said. Cubs trainer Mark O'Neal said that Prior's MRI showed the symptoms were different than what the right-hander experienced last spring with his elbow. The problem now, O'Neal said, is inflammation in the joint and some irritation to the ulnar nerve. "We have to let those medications take effect, and basically the nerve and the inflammation will dictate when we can proceed," O'Neal said. Prior will not throw at least until Wednesday, and that would be on the side. More word on Prior when we get it, but for now, bump him down a couple spots on your cheatsheets just to be on the safe side.

At least Gonzalez stayed healthy long enough to win 2 MVPs. At the rate Prior is getting injured, he might not win anything in his career.

Except for the fact that Prior is still young (24) and he has lots of time to win something. Juan Gonzalez won both of his MVP's when he was older ( 1998-29, 1996-26 ). I still think Prior has time to be one of the best pitchers in the game. Althought he must get over the injuries. He will win a Cy Young, the question is though...When?
