Sights and sounds: Stephen Pryor throws live batting practice

Stephen Pryor’s long road back from surgery to repair a torn latissmus dorsi has lead him back to the pitcher’s mound and now to facing hitters.

On Monday, Pryor threw live batting practice. It’s a major step for him in his recovery. Pryor looked solid. He even broke a bat. Does this mean that he will be ready around opening day? Not necessarily. But it means he could be back in the Mariners’ bullpen soon.

As far as the recovery, the biggest issue for Pryor to tell the staff if there is any tightness or soreness. Pryor is just the second pitcher to have this surgery – the other being Jake Peavey, so there is some unknowns about the recovery process.
