Prior a loser in rehab start - Chicago Sun-Times
Mark Prior said his strained right shoulder is starting to feel closer to normal after a rehab start Monday for the Class A Peoria Chiefs.

The 25-year-old right-hander threw 44 pitches, 28 for strikes, topping out at 90 mph in two innings against the Oakland Athletics' Midwest League affiliate, Kane County, on a 95-degree day at O'Brien Field.

Prior, who took the loss in the 8-2 decision, had three strikeouts and gave up three runs, two earned, and four hits.

"It got loose obviously pretty quick out there," Prior said of his throwing shoulder.
