Cubs' Prior back on DL

CHICAGO ? (AP) ? Cubs right-hander Mark Prior went back on the 15-day disabled list Friday, this time with a strained left oblique muscle.

 

He got hurt while taking batting practice last Saturday in Milwaukee. Prior, who began the season on the disabled list with a sore shoulder, came off it June 18 and went 0-4 in four starts with a 7.71 ERA. He was scratched from his start last Sunday.

 

How long will the Cubs be without Prior?

 

"We're not sure,'' manager Dusty Baker said. "He was better yesterday.''

 

Prior is scheduled to throw in the bullpen Thursday and then again next Tuesday.

 

The Cubs are also without Kerry Wood, who has a partially torn rotator cuff and is in the process of deciding whether to have surgery or try to rehab the injury.

 

"Kerry is going to see a few doctors. We always let the players decide who they'd like to see in this situation,'' general manager Jim Hendry said.

 

"So I think Kerry and his representatives and our medical staff are trying to do the best thing for him and let him have the opportunity to see a lot of people.''

 

Right-hander Carlos Zambrano, who was hit in the elbow by the fungo bat of White Sox third base coach Joey Cora before the All-Star game in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night, is OK and scheduled to make his start Saturday against the Mets.

:lol I assume you've never taken batting practice?

 

I actually played throughout highschool and for my first two years in college.

 

You shouldn't injure yourself in batting practice, as a professional, with a trained team of physicians and massage therapists to have you looser than Paris Hilton before setting foot on the grass.

It shouldn't be suprising that straining your oblique muscle would happen during batting practice. Not shocking at all.

 

Your obliques contract when your 'core' twists. He may have over swung or something to that effect.

 

You could stretch the oblique till the cows come home and if you twist sharply or do some other akward movement with your trunk, it's not going to matter you are going to end up hurting muscle fibers in there. Its also an injury that is a bitch to heal and for as small as the injury can be, it's easy to re-injure and heal properly.

since you missed it...i believe what swifty is trying to say is that wood and prior are big (female nether regions) and need to suck it up or come back fully healthy or quit the game...because the getting hurt and missing the 90% of the year gig is pretty old and tiresome

i think this is prior's 7th time on the DL..this has got to suck for the cubs. they've got to be getting impatient with this whole deal. one of them (wood) needs to go to the pen where he will have a lesser chance of injuring himself. both have extremely bright futures, and injuries are just slowing that process down mightily

Nah, more of what I'm trying to say is that it's comical that these professionals get injured so easily.

 

And, to make it worse (no conspiracy theory here, promise) it seems when a Cubs pitcher gets hurt, one of the team policies is to blame it on ridiculous events.

 

This isn't the first time a Cubs starter has been "injured" by BP (Zambrano got one from BP and one from using the computer too much).

 

That's it, the guys are professionals in peak shape with a staff of doctors and specialists hovering around their every move, at a point it simply becomes comical. I guess Passion doesn't agree.

ha...true that...my lil cuz (jeff locke for those who dont already know) got fined some demerits for not wearing socks with his sandals...i wonder if the cubs should start fining wood and prior everytime they hurt themselves, maybe that will actually get those guys to play some baseball
