In November, Mariners' general manger Jack Zduriencik said Pryor would be ready at some point in Spring Training, but team trainer Rob Nodine states that is not the case:
"There's been very few of these injuries that have been surgically repaired. A lot will depend on when he ramps up his throwing program and gets off the mound. Hopefully it will be somewhere around the end of May, we're guessing, but we'll see how that goes. We're not going to hold him to a timetable, just because we want to see how this progresses."Nodine said that Jake Peavy had a similar injury and the rehab process is a long one. However, Nodine also states that Pryor has been doing great so far and should make further progress during Spring Training. Once healthy, Pryor could compete for end of game bullpen duties.
