    Are you saying he has prior issues and should be a low priority for the Bosox?

    Perfect low-risk, low-cost deal. He costs nothing, and while his health always makes him a longshot, I could see him pitching out of the Sox pen in the second half if everything went well.

    I'm doubting he gets called up.

    Red Sox Sign Mark Prior

    BOSTON -- The Red Sox have signed former star pitcher Mark Prior to a minor league deal.

    Prior was the second overall pick in the 2001 draft by the Chicago Cubs, for whom he had some shining moments, but arm injuries curtailed his career. He hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2006, and has thrown only two innings as high as Triple-A since then.

    He has tried to come back with the Texas Rangers, San Diego Padres and New York Yankees without success. Prior, 31, will report to the Red Sox's extended spring program.

    "He looked good, the velocity's been good," Boston GM Ben Cherington told reporters Wednesday."We're going to leave him down there for a while just to build strength before we send him out to a minor league club. He signed a minor league deal and will keep pitching in extended for a while."
