Stephen Pryor has been on the disabled list since suffering a lat muscle injury while pitching for the Mariners back in April. But today, he’s been shut down for the remainder of the year with a new and completely different injury to his triceps. Pryor apparently felt pain in that area while warming up for a Class AAA rehab outing on Friday, then had an MRI yesterday in which team medical director Dr. Edward Khalfayan and others saw something problematic.
“They really didn’t like what they saw,” Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik said this morning. “So, as a precaution, he’s going to get re-evalutated and we’re going to look through this thing further because it’s really unusual. And rather than go into any detail about it more than that, Ed (Khalfayan) is going to talk to a couple of different people about the type of injury he just had. Unfortunately, he’s worked very hard but it is where it is and he won’t pitch the rest of the year.”More
