Manager Eric Wedge said the session went well and Pryor will throw another simulated outing on Saturday.

Pryor didn't allow a run in 7 1/3 innings in his first seven appearances this season before going on the disabled list.

Morse (strained quad) and Gutierrez (strained hamstring) are both on the 15-day disabled list themselves, but they aren't ready to go out on Minor League rehab outings yet and will remain with the team and likely hit against Pryor again Saturday.
