Stephen Pryor’s season is done for M’s

Mariners relief pitcher Stephen Pryor has been shut down for the remainder of the season with a triceps injury.

Pryor has been on the disabled list since mid-April, recovering from a torn lat muscle, but had been doing rehabilitation work with Class AAA Tacoma and was expected to rejoin the Mariners soon. He experienced soreness in his triceps area while warming up Friday night. An MRI on Saturday revealed significant damage.

“They really didn’t like what they saw,’’ Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik said. “So, as a precaution, he’s going to get re-evaluated and we’re going to look through this thing further because it’s really unusual. ... Unfortunately, he’s worked very hard, but it is where it is and he won’t pitch the rest of the year.’’
