    Prior attended USC, where he won the Dick Howser Trophy (he attended his father's alma mater, Vanderbilt University, for his freshman year), given annually to the national collegiate baseball player of the year. After becoming a professional baseball player, he continued his education on a part-time basis and received a business degree from USC Marshall School of Business in 2004. He was part of a pitching rotation that also boasted current Cleveland Indians pitcher Anthony Reyes.

    2001 draft

    In 2001, Prior re-entered the draft, and was considered by some to be the top prospect, but the Minnesota Twins, who had the top pick, were warned that Prior didn't want to play for them. Fearing a tough signability problem, the Twins opted to take local talent catcher Joe Mauer, leaving Prior to be taken 2nd overall by the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs had also been considering drafting Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets' third baseman Mark Teixeira, who went fifth to the Texas Rangers.

    2003 season

    In 2003, Prior finished third in the National League's Cy Young Award voting after compiling an 18-6 win-loss record despite missing three starts after an on-field collision with Atlanta Braves second baseman Marcus Giles. Prior and Giles had both been chosen to play in the 2003 All-Star Game, but were forced to miss the game as a result of their injuries. Prior and fellow right-handed pitcher Kerry Wood were dubbed "Chicago Heat" by Sports Illustrated, and the name stuck, as the twosome were...

    Prior was forced to miss the first two months of the 2004 season due to an achilles tendon injury. There were published reports stating that Prior would need reconstructive Tommy John surgeryon his elbow, but both Prior and the Cubs denied this, saying that his achilles tendon injury is the only reason he missed time in 2004. After coming off the disabled list Prior did not pitch up to expectations, leading to more speculation about the health of his arm. However, towards the end of the 2004...

    Template:SourcesEarly in his career Prior's smooth, seemingly effortless delivery was widely regarded as mechanically efficient and sound. Prior's former personal pitching coach Tom Houselabeled the Cubs' right-hander's mechanics as "perfect." However, after Prior suffered a series of debilitating arm injuries, many experts have re-examined the quality of his delivery. As easy and flowing as Prior's motion seems, he goes through some motions which some believe to be hazardous. According to Chris O'Leary of The Pitching Mechanic, an online pitching mechanics blog, Prior's injury problems are largely derived from his arm action. More specifically, they are due to Prior's Inverted Warm action in which he lifts his elbows above and behind the level of his shoulders. According to O'Leary, this creates a timing problem that places an undue stress on the muscles and ligaments of the shoulder and elbow. According to Dick Mills, a former major league pitcher and coauther of The Science and A...
