EVERETT, Wash. — Former Friendship Christian pitcher Stephen Pryor failed to get out of the first inning in his rehab assignment with the Everett AquaSox in their game against the Vancouver Canadians on Tuesday night.
Pryor, who tore a back muscle while pitching for the Seattle Mariners in an April 14 game against the Texas Rangers, was making his first game appearance since. The hard-throwing right-hander was on a one-inning or 25-pitch count.
He retired the first Canadian on a deep fly ball and struck out the second before L.B. Dantzler homered. Back-to-back singles and a balk followed and both runs scored, though one was unearned as he made exactly 25 pitches.
Pryor, who has yet to allow a run in the major leagues this season, was on the hook for the Class-A loss last night, though the game was still in progress at press time.
It wasn't known when he would make his next rehab appearance, though it's expected to be for Triple-A Tacoma, which is on the Pacific Coast League all-star break through today.
