Martin Prado (hamstring) has been running for the past three days.

He was placed on the 10-day disabled list at the beginning of the season with a Grade 1 hamstring strain. A mid-April return is possible, here, though given the notoriously difficult nature of hamstring injuries, the Marlins are not placing an exact timetable on the veteran third baseman. Derek Dietrich will continue to fill in for him at the hot corner until he is ready to rejoin the Marlins.

There is no current timetable for his return to action, but that should clarify in the next few days. Given the notorious nature of hamstring injuries, his availability for Opening Day could be in danger. Should he miss time in the regular season, Derek Dietrich could see expanded playing time.
