Mark Prior trying to make another comeback

Mark Prior will work out for teams Wednesday as he tries to return to the majors, FoxSports.com’s Tracy Ringolsby reports.

The 29-year-old right-hander is schedule to throw at the University of Southern California, in front of scouts for "most major league teams," according to Ringolsby. The former Trojans star last pitched in the big leagues in 2006.

Prior’s career has become a cautionary tale for pitchers, most recently Nationals rookie Stephen Strasburg, who are expected to be stars at a young age. An 18-6 season in 2003 with the Cubs proved to be Prior’s pinnacle; a series of injuries soon forced him out of the game.
