Reds signed RHP Mark Prior to a minor league contract.
He did not receive an invitation to big league camp. Prior, who posted a 3.96 ERA and 38/23 K/BB ratio over 25 innings for Triple-A Pawtucket with the Red Sox last year, will be reunited with former manager Dusty Baker in Cincy. "He called me and asked for a chance," Baker said. "I talked to Walt (Jocketty). (Prior) says he feels good. He feels like he has some unfinished business."
