Prior Still Wants To Pitch

It's easy to forget that Mark Prior's just 28. He's battled arm troubles with the Cubs and been released by the Padres, but he tells MLB.com's Fred Claire that he still wants to pitch. Pedro Martinez and Chris Carpenter have come back from injuries, so Prior looks at them and remains determined to come back.

"I will do everything I can to prepare myself to pitch in the Major Leagues again," he said. "I know I have the ability and I haven't given up on myself in any way."

When Prior looks forward he sees a career renaissance like Carpenter's; when he looks back, he remembers the Stephen Strasburg-esque hype that surrounded him after he signed a record-setting deal out of college. Prior, who says he has no regrets, offers this advice for Strasburg: "enjoy the journey."
