Prior was supposed to undergo the MRI yesterday, but he had personal business to attend to in San Diego. The Cubs say they are encouraged by the initial diagnosis. "For me, I'm very pleased," trainer Mark O'Neal said. "There's extremely bad news that could've come out of it. This is a posterior shoulder strain, and we'll deal with it like you would a hamstring strain. Unfortunately, it's in the shoulder. For us, it's pretty good news." Obviously, there's still very good reason to be concerned. The Cubs' ability to understate injuries is becoming legendary. Mar. 16 - 2:11 pm et

According to this article, they're calling it a shoulder strain. Yet they still haven't seen the results of the MRI....which are due Saturday.

Anyone that owns Prior ought to be looking for someone who's not paying attention and try to get a trade. A posterior shoulder injury is a lot better than a rotator cuff but result could be months on the DL and a stint in the minors. It's also an injury that likes to come back.
