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.

A huge sigh of relief.


I'm still nervous. Mostly cause i wasn't surprised when he was injured and I won't be surprised if it is some sort of tear. I'm praying it isn't though.

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.
