Martin Prado had a nice night at the dish in Saturday's loss to the Padres, going 4-for-4 with a double.
The Marlins were shut out in the ballgame, only mustering nine total hits as a team, so Prado was certainly the driving force of the offense. He's quietly having a very nice season for the Marlins, slashing .323/.376/.436 with seven homers and 61 RBI. Aug 27 - 10:37 PM

Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Reds.

Prado had a two-run single in the seventh inning to pull the Marlins to within a run, but it wasn't enough in the end. Still, it was a good night for the 32-year-old, who now has four multi-hit games in his last six contests. It's no surprise, then, that Prado and his .327 average rank third in the National League in hitting. He's also sporting a .380 on-base percentage and .446 slugging percentage through 115 games.

The 32-year-old is having another good offensive year and has settled in near the top of the Marlins lineup, batting .322/.375/.439 overall.

Martin Prado (toe) is in Monday's lineup against the Giants.

Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer in a loss to the Cardinals on Friday.

After hitting three homers through his first 95 games this season, Prado has now gone deep in back-to-back games. He has six multi-hit games in his last nine, raising his batting average from .313 to .327 overall. He’s third in the NL in batting average behind Wilson Ramos and Daniel Murphy from the Nationals.

Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

Prado connected with a Michael Wacha pitch for the two-run shot, his fourth of the season. Prado has been on quite the heater of late, going 14-for-29 in his last eight games, with five multi-hit contests in that span. The good stretch has his season line up to .325/.376/.428.
Jul 28 - 10:16 PM

Martin Prado went 3-for-4 with a trio of singles in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

Only two other Marlins (Christian Yelich, Adeiny Hechavarria) secured hits on the afternoon. And only Prado managed a multi-hit effort. In total, the team collected five singles. It was that kind of a game for the Marlins. For his part, Prado is slashing .322/.373/.415 with 21 doubles, 35 RBI and 41 runs scored over 367 at-bats. While the veteran infielder isn't a particularly sexy fantasy option, he at least offers a very dependable average.
Jul 24 - 4:26 PM

Martin Prado went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Saturday's win over the Mets.

Prado had a pair of RBI singles in the win, the first in the fifth and another in the seventh inning. He's now got 35 RBI on the year. The 32-year-old doesn't produce many counting stats, but he's hitting .317/.366/.410 with 41 runs scored through 91 games.

Martin Prado delivered a go-ahead solo homer in the 11th inning of Monday's comeback win over the Phillies.

Prado led off the top of the 11th with a shot off of Brett Oberholtzer for his lone hit of the night. While he has only three home runs on the year, Prado has his season line up to .320/.370/.419. The average ranks fourth in the National League.
Jul 18 - 11:26 PM

Martin Prado went 3-for-3 with two doubles and two RBI in a win over the Reds on Saturday.

Prado had a two-run double in the bottom of the fifth, giving the Marlins a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The third baseman has been on fire in recent days, going 17-for-39 (.435) in his last nine games. Prado is batting .323/.366/.412 overall.
Jul 9 - 10:42 PM

Martin Prado went 1-for-5 with a three-run double in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

The Marlins held a scant 3-1 advantage entering the eighth inning, but Prado provided them a killer breather when he unloaded for a bases-clearing double to bump the advantage to 6-1. That effectively ended the game. The 32-year-old third baseman is slashing .312/.359/.404 with 15 doubles, two homers and 26 RBI over 282 at-bats. Outside of a dependable average, Prado's fantasy value is limited.
Jun 26 - 5:01 PM

Martin Prado went 3-for-3 with a two-run home run and three total RBI in Monday's win over the Padres.

Prado led off the top of the third inning with a two-run home run against Colin Rea. That sparked the Marlins something mighty fierce, as they would go on to score another five times in the frame. The veteran third-baseman added an RBI single in the fifth to finish off his three-RBI night. He is hitting a juicy .332, but Monday's home run was just his second of the season.
Jun 14 - 2:27 AM

Martin Prado went 4-for-5 including a triple on Saturday versus the Diamondbacks, raising his batting average to .323 on the season.

Prado doesn't offer much in the way of power or speed but he has always been able to hit for average. The career .292 hitter has hit only one home run this year but is likely to pick up the pace as the summer rolls along. Prado has hit between 10-15 home runs every year since 2009.
Jun 12 - 1:03 AM

Martin Prado is not in the Marlins' lineup Wednesday.

Chris Johnson will start at third base and bat seventh versus Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson. Prado, sitting on a cool .374/.411/.446 season slash, is just getting a day of rest for the afternoon tilt.
May 18 - 10:37 AM

Martin Prado went 4-for-5 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Stellar work by Prado, but not enough to bring the Marlins home to glory. With the four hits, he is now slashing a meaty .396/.426/.475 with no homers and 10 RBI across 101 at-bats. He won't threaten .400 for the entire season (that would be a story), but is usable in deeper fantasy formats, particularly deeper NL-only formats.
