Prior Update from Yahoo!!!

Postby harmonjh » Thu Apr 29, 2004 12:47 am

Apr 28 Prior said he felt the best he has since beginning rehabilitation, after throwing about 50 pitches in a bullpen session before Tuesday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Cubs' righthander, who has been limited by right Achilles tendinitis and a sore pitching elbow since March, is expected to remain at the team's spring training facility in Mesa to continue his recovery. Reportedly, Prior will throw simulated games every four days, barring any setbacks.
Advice: The Cubs did not set a timetable for Prior's return to the starting rotation, but he appears to be at least a couple weeks away. A minor league rehab assignment is a definite possibility.

Apr 28 The Chicago Tribune reports Chicago Cubs P Mark Prior (Achilles/elbow) will face live hitters for the first time Saturday, throwing a simulated inning at extended spring training in Fitch Park. "I felt stamina was for the most part there," he said. "I felt as good as I've felt since I started rehabbing. Saturday will be another step. Even though it's not game intensity, it's another step on the intensity meter. There'll be a little more emotion, a little more adrenaline, facing hitters."

Good news for me ;-D ;-D

I don't see how the source at all detracts from the good news on Prior.
