The Definition Of "Fragile"

I wish that this was more of a surprise.

San Diego Padres pitcher Mark Prior will undergo season-ending surgery on
his injured right shoulder, the latest medical setback to a once-promising
career.

Padres manager Bud Black announced the decision to operate before
Sunday’s game against the San Francisco Giants. Prior, one of the top young
pitchers in the game for the Chicago Cubs just a few years ago, has not pitched
in the majors since Aug. 10, 2006.

He had been trying to make a comeback with his hometown Padres this season, but his rehab process was shut down at extended spring training about two weeks ago when he had more soreness in the shoulder.

Prior, 27, had surgery on the same shoulder in April 2007 while with the
Cubs.

At least Ben Sheets has more original ailments.
