Mark Prior signs with the Orange County Flyers

Mark Prior is back in Professional baseball, sort of.  Mark Prior signed with the Orange County Flyers today, trying to reestablish a once promising career.

Prior, who is still just 29, hasn't pitched in the majors since 2006.  He signed a minor league contract with the Padres in 2008, and again in 2009, but he was never able to see any game action.

Prior had his best season in 2003, going 18-6 with 2.43 ERA in 32 starts.  He pitched the Cubs to an NLCS berth.

Kevin Says:  This is a good move for Mark Prior.  Hopefully he can stay healthy, and reestablish himself as a useful player once again.  Players like Daniel Nava and Scott Richmond have made the show after playing in the Golden Baseball League.  Besides Rickey Henderson and Jose Canseco, Prior is the biggest name to play in this independent league.
