Yankees’ RHP Mark Prior is scheduled to pitch in the Gulf Coast Rookie League on Friday. Prior was hit near the wrist while throwing batting practice earlier in the week.
Prior has a history of injuries, he has missed time this year due to a strained groin and back soreness, and made his last major league appearance on August 10, 2006 for the Chicago Cubs.
Prior, 30, is looking to return to his 2003 form, when he went 18-6 with a 2.43 ERA for the Cubs.
