From Rotowire:
Prior (shoulder) threw about 30 pitches from the bullpen mound before Tuesday's game, the Associated Press reports. Pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Prior has progressed to a point where he doesn't feel any pain. He will throw again Friday in Arizona. This is good news for Prior owners, though we'll remain agnostic about his prospects until he faces hitters in a rehab assignment or a major league game. If all goes well, Prior could be back at some point in early to mid May.

He is on the "accelerated program" because they must have skipped the towel drills and chair drills. Pretty soon you will hear: "Kerry Wood and Mark Prior played ski ball today and reported no pain. Tomorrow they will go through frisbee drills before thinking about pitching simulated games at the end of April."

A Ram hurt again...where do they find these trainers?

Ok, in all seriousness and per the Chicago Cubune, the Cubs expect him back a week or 2 after Kerry Wood. Wood is targeting May 4th or 5th at the latest and the last week of April at the earliest.

Prior completed the same bullpen session on Tuesday. If he keeps progressing he should return to the Cubs around mid-May.

Apr 16 Chicago Cubs SP Mark Prior (shoulder) threw 40 pitches Friday, April 14, at the team's spring training facility in Mesa, Ariz., according to Carrie Muskat of Chicago.Cubs.MLB.com. He did two 20-pitch sessions, resting in between, said pitching coach Larry Rothschild.
