Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Nationals.
Prado's two-run homer against Nationals starter Max Scherzer in the third inning boosted his overall total of taters to seven. He also scored twice. He's been on a mini power surge over the last week, having hit two homers and two doubles while working himself up to a seven-game hitting streak. That being said, his overall season triple-slash remains relatively punch-less at .274/.320/.374. Aug 28 - 10:18 PM

Martin Prado went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-2 loss to the Pirates.

Prado tied the game up at 1-1 in the first inning, driving a solo home run to left field off of Jeff Locke. The infielder has hit for more power lately, hitting two doubles and two home runs within the last week, but it mostly hasn't been there for him this season. Prado is batting .270/.316/.364 with six home runs and 40 RBI.

According to's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins are open to a waive trade of Martin Prado.

Frisaro adds, however, that a team would probably have to overpay. Prado is under contract through the 2016 season and the Fish believe he can help them contend after a disappointing 2015. The 31-year-old is batting .270/.315/.353 in 88 games this season as the Marlins' primary third baseman.

Martin Prado had three hits and a walk in four plate appearances in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Prado singled in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning and later scored on a J.T. Realmuto ground out. He has drawn some trade interest, though he was mostly linked to the Royals, who recently acquired Ben Zobrist. Prado has had a subpar offensive year, batting .280/.321/.375 with four home runs and 27 RBI.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Marlins are now "now open to at least contemplate" trading Martin Prado.

Previous reports indicated that the Marlins planned to keep Prado, but they are softening on that stance just a couple of days away from the trade deadline. The 31-year-old is owed $11 million next season, though the Yankees are covering $3 million. He's capable of playing multiple positions and should have appeal to multiple contenders.
Jul 28 - 1:33 PM's Joe Frisaro is hearing that the Royals' interest in Martin Prado is "minimal."

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi connected the Royals and Prado on Sunday night, but the veteran infielder is apparently not high on Kansas City's priority list heading into the July 31 trade deadline. Or maybe this is all posturing. Prado, 31, is batting .273/.312/.369 with four home runs and 26 RBI in 73 games this season for Miami. Ben Zobrist has also been connected recently to the AL Central-leading Royals.

According to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports, the Royals have interest in acquiring Martin Prado from the Marlins.

Sources tell Morosi that the Marlins would have to include cash to help facilitate the deal. With the veteran's versatility, he would be a nice upgrade to the Royals offense. He's hitting .277/.316/.374 with four homers and 26 RBI in 72 games on the season.

Martin Prado (shoulder) went 0-for-4 in his return from the disabled list Friday.

Prado, out since June 14 with a right shoulder sprain, is expected to play second base while Dee Gordon (thumb) is on the disabled list while the recently-signed Casey McGehee will play third. We'd rather see more of Derek Dietrich, but keeping second base-eligibility will be good for Prado's fantasy value as we look ahead to 2016.
Jul 17 - 9:38 PM

Marlins activated INF Martin Prado from the 15-day disabled list.

Prado missed the last month of action with a right shoulder sprain. He's expected to play second base while Dee Gordon (thumb) is out, with Casey McGehee handling third base.
Jul 17 - 10:42 AM

Martin Prado will remain on his rehab assignment with Class-A Jupiter through the All-Star break and is expected to rejoin the Marlins on Friday.

There had been some speculation that he'd be activated for Sunday's game, but they'll opt to play it more cautiously. It's unclear where he'll be stationed upon his return, but he could wind up seeing time at second base with Casey McGehee at the hot corner.
Jul 12 - 8:13 PM

Marlins skipper Dan Jennings said Martin Prado (shoulder) could be activated on Sunday.

Jennings further indicated that Prado might play on Sunday, so plan accordingly. Derek Dietrich has been filling in at third base for the Fish, though Miami has further fortified the hot corner in recent days with the promotion of Jordany Valdespin and the signing of old friend Casey McGehee. We surmise that Mr. Valdespin may not be long for the roster. Hopefully, he'll take the news well, always a hit-and-miss proposition.
Jul 11 - 1:46 PM

Martin Prado (shoulder) has begun a rehab assignment with High-A Jupiter.

It's unclear how many rehab games Prado will need before being activated, but it seems likely that he'll be brought back at the start of the second half. The veteran infielder has been on the shelf for the last three weeks with a right shoulder sprain.
Jul 8 - 9:56 AM

Marlins placed 3B Martin Prado on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 15, with a right shoulder sprain.

Prado hadn't played since Sunday. It's not clear how long he might be out. Derek Dietrich figures to get the majority of the playing time at the hot corner for Miami.
Jun 18 - 3:29 PM

Martin Prado (shoulder) is headed to the disabled list.

Prado hasn't played since Sunday afternoon due to a right shoulder sprain and he isn't making enough progress on the side. Jordany Valdespin is expected to join the Marlins' active roster on Thursday. Derek Dietrich has been filling in at third base for the Fish.
Jun 18 - 9:14 AM

Martin Prado was given a pain-killing injection in his right shoulder.

Prado said on Sunday that he didn't think he'd play until at least next weekend, but getting the injection could speed the healing along a bit. Still, he's expected to miss a few games.
