Prior most likely done for the year

Put on the DL with shoulder problems. The Tribune is reporting he's most likely finished for the year

This is from CBS Sportsline:

News: The Cubs placed Mark Prior on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with shoulder tendinitis, a move that could mean an end to the right-hander's season. The latest DL trip comes after he allowed five earned runs in three innings in an 8-6 loss to Milwaukee on Thursday. Prior didn't feel anything wrong with the shoulder, but a loss in velocity in the third inning led the team to send him back to Chicago for an MRI on Friday, which showed rotator cuff tendinitis. "I'm more disappointed for him," Cubs manager Dusty Baker said. "It's been a tough couple of years here, on and off the DL. He's not very happy about it."

Analysis: The Cubs want Prior to rest for three weeks before throwing again, which could mean the end of his season if he doesn't have time to make enough rehab starts before rejoining the Cubs. "Everybody can do the math as to what that does for the rest of the season," Cubs trainer Mark O'Neal said. "At the end of the three weeks, hopefully we're going to (start) throwing and we'll go from there -- I haven't really looked at the calendar. Then it would take 10 days of bullpen to get going again. The likelihood of him returning this year is questionable." Ouch. Consider Prior nothing more than a DL flier in deeper leagues or long-term keeper formats. That scrub

I was debating drafting Prior or Peavy to anchor my core.

Peavy isn't looking too hot right now, but Prior. Oh man. What happened to him?

They want to rest him for 3 weeks?

The guy needs to rest for a year or two and then try to pick up a ball. It's obvious that a little DL stint is not going to help him.

The issue is that he's rusty and rehabilatiing from injuries. I don't think 2 years away from pitching is gonna solve anything.... :-P
