(1090 The Fan) — Stephen Pryor has returned from a rehab assignment with the Tacoma Rainiers and is officially off the disabled list. However, the 24-year-old pitcher will stick with the Rainiers until further notice.
Mariners General Manager Jack Zduriencik says the right hander has been optioned to Triple-A Tacoma.
Pryor was placed on the 15-day disabled list on March 29, retroactive to March 21, recovering from surgery resulting from a tear in his right latissimus dorsi muscle. He did not appear in an “A” game during spring training, but did pitch in minor league games. He began his rehab assignment with four games at AA Jackson where he recorded an 0-1, 14.73 mark (3.2 IP, 5 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 3 BB, 3 SO, 2 HR). His rehab assignment was transferred to Tacoma, where he pitched in back-to-back games April 15 and April 16.
In two games with Tacoma, he was 0-0 with a save and a 4.50 ERA. He allowed 2 hits and 1 earned run in 2.0 innings pitched, while walking 2 and striking out 1.
