Remember he will almost certainly have to pitch a game or two in the minors to make sure everything is right. So, in all likelihood, I would say to expect him back mid-June.

May 18 The Chicago Tribune reports Chicago Cubs SP Mark Prior (arm) will throw his first game against Rookie Leaguers on Friday, May 19, in Mesa, Ariz. He probably will throw two such games before beginning a minor-league rehab stint.

Miller should be back pretty soon, too.

Zambrano, Maddux, Prior, Wood, Miller

Pretty nice looking rotation.

Hopefully it's not to late for that to matter.

Prior was a waiver pick up for me in his dominant 2003 year, but ever since, he's been terrible in terms of a fantasy ace. I finally gave up on him this year and went one round earlier to grab Peavy in my new Keeper league.

He was dealt with Papel for Crawford in that league and so far that owner is struggling.

My point? I guess I don't have one other than the fact that you might want to lower your expectations of Prior. A shell of his (brief) former self.

Last year, the guy threw 166 innings where he struck out a ridiculous 188 batters with a 3.67 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. Oh yeah, and he's also only 25-years-old. That expression "shell of his former self" is highly inappropriate here.

Cubs fan here...I like that rotation if they could manage to stay healthy. I don't think they can stay healthy though. I also think that it's very likely to be too late unless their players really step it up. They're 10 1/2 out of first and 7 1/2 out of the wild card. More importantly though is that they're playing with 0 confidence. If they slide any more I just don't see this being the year.

Cubs fans should give up all hope for this year. The rotation has potential to be dominant, but that lineup is simply tame right now. Pierre and Jones were simply terrible signings, and whatever momentum the Cubs have is easily killed by players like Neifi....I mean who the hell bunts to make the last out with the tying runs on base in the 9th.....thats right Neifi does and Baker supports him afterwards.

Cubs fans need to get organized, take to the streets and make sure you let management know that Dusty needs to be put out to pasture immediately!!! Thats the only hope for next year.
