The transformation of Mark Prior

I really hope Mark Prior's attempted comeback works. There's a really good article up on ESPN about him.

So far, Prior has been stellar as a reliever for Triple-A Pawtucket, striking out 27 in 13 1/3 innings with a 4.05 ERA. But there's a six-year gap that remains relatively unanswered for. Since Aug. 10, 2006, which is the last time Prior appeared on a major league mound, he pitched just 24 innings of professional baseball before joining the PawSox, and that includes 11 innings with the Orange County Flyers — an independent league team based in California — in 2010. And when Prior joined the Orange County Flyers, the residual effects of his shoulder operations were apparent.
