He allowed one unearned run over 9 relief appearances (11.0 IP), while compiling 22 strikeouts against 5 walks. Even for Independent League baseball that's decent. He's certainly worth a flyer and definitely a non-roster spring training invite.

Too bad the Sox didn't take that chance. How sweet would've it been for him to come to Sox and become like an elite closer or something?

I hope he turns his career around. I'm just glad he didn't sign with the twins. He would be winning Cy Youngs in no time.

Rangers seem to not mind taking fliers on fragile guys even after the McCarthy debacle. If they are smart, they'll just turn Prior into an elite bullpen arm instead of trying to get pre-injury form out of him.

Harden and Prior? Quick, trade them Wood, too.

I don't know if Prior pitched his innings in Hawaii, but if he pitched his 11 innings in Tucson, Yuma and Tijuana this summer and survived, he should have no problem getting out American League hitters in Texas.

I don't know what Wade Miller is doing, but maybe he can join them as well.

I think it's a good move on their part. Can't hurt. I hope he's able to resurrect his career.

Seriously. If you're a Texas fan, how awesome is it that one of your owners is freakin' Nolan Ryan. Does anybody remember his first years in the office with the team, and at games he would sit next to the dugout. If a pitcher came out in the 5th, he'd have to walk right past Nolan Ryan.
