Independent League | Mark Prior converting to reliever

Orange County Flyers P Mark Prior is converting to a relief pitcher in hopes of making it back to the majors, AOL Fanhouse's Tom Krasovic reports. He has thrown five innings over three outings and has struck out 10 batters without allowing an earned run. He hopes to pitch for a major league team next year as a reliever and attempt to win a spot in the starting rotation in 2012. "It's taken me awhile to get my arm healthy. I think it's healthy. I think I'm starting to show that to people," Prior said. "Now I need to refine and retool everything after three or four years away from competitive games."
