Red Sox Release Mark Prior

The Red Sox have released right-hander Mark Prior, according to Brendan McGair of the Pawtucket Times (via Twitter).  The move was made in order to create space for the newly-acquired Pedro Beato.

Prior, 31, hooked on with the Red Sox in early May as he looked to attempt yet another comeback.  During his time in Triple-A Pawtucket, Prior posted a 3.96 ERA with 13.7 K/9 and 8.3 BB/9 in a small sample size of 25 innings of work.  The second-overall pick in 2001 was brilliant in the early portion of his career but has not pitched in the majors since 2006 thanks to a series of shoulder problems.

Last games headline:
“Prior struck out the side in the 7th and 8th while allowing 6 base runners due to walking every other batter”

I was unaware Boston has been begging for washed up bulpen arms. Thanks for the heads up though!

Epic fail to someone who clearly does not have the mental faculty for a simple google and see Boston has one of the finest BP’s in baseball..
