Former prized right-hander Mark Prior, who hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2006 because of a long list of injuries, has agreed to terms with the Rangers and will report to Triple A Oklahoma City on Saturday.
Prior, who turns 30 on Tuesday, signed in early August with the Orange County Flyers of the Golden Baseball League. He tossed 11 innings without allowing an earned run, and opponents hit only .135 against him.
Prior was an 18-game winner and an All-Star in for the Chicago Cubs in 2003. He has since suffered from a variety of injuries, spanning from an Achilles tendon problem to two operations on his shoulder. He is 42-29 with a 3.51 ERA in his career.
