Cubs | McDowell Hints at Prior Using Steroids

Cubs.MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports former MLB SP Jack McDowell told Sporting News Radio and the Chicago Sun-Times that Chicago Cubs SP Mark Prior's (Achilles') slow recovery is a sign of steroid use. "He has a tendon injury that's not healing," McDowell said. "You shouldn't have a problem like that that doesn't heal in a month. That's what happens to guys who use steroids." McDowell then said he wasn't "suspicious" of Prior, "but that's one of the tell-tale things. What happens with steroids is the muscles get too strong for the tendons. You have a lot of tendon blowouts or tendonitis that doesn't heal."
