Guess I was wrong...Prior to minors

According to the Sun-Times and Rotoworld, Prior will not be in April's rotation, and will be sent down to the minors.

From Rotoworld

"The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Mark Prior will not be in the Cubs' April rotation and may not get another start in an official Cactus League game.

Prior will pitch in a minor league game Friday, but reportedly will begin the season at Triple-A or on the disabled list. ''I don't think we are going to have enough time and innings to continue to stretch out as many people as we [have],'' manager Lou Piniella said. That leaves the fifth-starter job down to Angel Guzman and Wade Miller, who seemingly has the upper hand. Mar. 15 - 9:51 am et

I am sure he will go to extended spring training, then Iowa if needed.

I'm not shocked at all. Besides, we don't need a 5th starter until the 2nd week of the season. I hope he comes on strong when he gets up here.

I don't see the fifth starter being a huge concern yet. Later in the year it will be more important. We'll just have to see whether my boy Guzman can impress Pinella enough to win the job. I'd love to see him healthy and successful.

He needs some work before I think he is ready for the majors. He needs to command his pitches. He needs to regain his velocity. And he needs to grow some cahones and go after people. He needs to stop aiming.
