Carp, Pryor continue with rehab work

Carp, Pryor continue with rehab work

SEATTLE -- Mariners left fielder Mike Carp and rookie reliever Stephen Pryor both did some light work with their teammates in Monday's pregame as they continue rehabilitating while on the 15-day disabled list.

Carp is now 15 days into his stint since being sidelined with a recurring shoulder issue, while Pryor's 15 days will be up on Wednesday. But neither is close to returning to action yet. Carp is just starting to take light swings, but isn't throwing yet with his right shoulder. Pryor, sidelined by a strained groin muscle, is throwing but not yet running.

"[Carp] is still working, still doing the rehab," manager Eric Wedge said. "I'm hoping to get him to swing a bat here at some point within the next week or so. We'll keep him away from throwing at first, just work him with the bat and go from there. He's still a ways away.

"Pryor is going to be throwing here and working toward a bullpen at some point, sooner than later, but he's still ramping up. He's [throwing] up to 90 feet today."

Once they're ready to play, both players will need to do a Minor League rehab stint before rejoining the Mariners.
