Martin Prado finished 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI in the Marlins' 7-0 win over the Phillies on Saturday.
Prado reached on an error in the first inning, slugged a three-run shot in the second inning, drew a walk in the fourth inning, and then cranked an RBI double in the sixth. He has a decent .733 OPS with two home runs, 14 RBI, and 11 runs scored in 24 games this season. If he keeps hitting near the top of the Marlins' batting order -- he hit second on Saturday -- the 31-year-old third baseman should continue to provide a good amount of fantasy value.

Martin Prado drove in four runs and collected three hits in five at-bats on Thursday as the Marlins made easy work of the Phillies.

Prado singled in a pair of runs to finish off a four-run fourth inning. In the sixth inning, he doubled in another two runs in what was another four-run frame. The performance leaves Prado batting a solid .300/.328/.400 with one home run and seven RBI.
Apr 23 - 4:04 PM

Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with a homer Thursday versus the Mets.

The Marlins moved Prado into the cleanup spot earlier this week, less because he was outplaying Michael Morse and more just so manager Mike Redmond could make it look like he was doing something. Prado did make it work tonight, though. The homer was his first, and he now has two RBI in 35 at-bats.

Martin Prado is not in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

It's just a breather. Jarrod Saltalamacchia is also sitting out, as the Marlins are going with Don Kelly at third base and Jeff Mathis behind the plate against Nate Karns and the Rays.

Martin Prado drove in two runs against Triple-A Jacksonville on Saturday.

Both RBI came via singles. Prado's spring numbers have left a little to be desired (.268/.305/.321 coming into the game). The infielder should be a relatively reliable source for batting average and he has some pop in his bat, but he doesn't hold much relevance to mixed-league drafts.
Apr 4 - 8:31 PM

Marlins acquired INF/OF Martin Prado, RHP David Phelps and cash considerations from the Yankees in exchange for RHP Nathan Eovaldi, 1B/OF Garrett Jones and RHP Domingo German.

The Yankees are sending $6 million to the Marlins to help offset the salaries. Prado is expected to play third base for the Marlins, which means Casey McGehee is either headed to the bench or the trade block. Prado's fantasy value obviously takes a big hit going from Yankee Stadium to Marlins Park.

Yankees activated INF/OF Martin Prado from the 60-day disabled list.

Prado was shut down in mid-September after undergoing an emergency appendectomy. He appeared to be rejuvenated after a mid-season trade to the Yankees, slashing .316/.336/.541 with seven homers and 16 RBI over his final 37 games. With eligibility at second base and third base, and hitting in a hitter-friendly ballpark, Prado should be able to carve out plenty of mixed league fantasy value in 2015.

Yankees placed INF/OF Martin Prado on the 60-day disabled list with appendicitis.

Prado underwent an emergency appendectomy and is now officially out for the rest of the season. The 30-year-old hit .316/.336/.541 with seven home runs and 16 RBI over 37 games after coming over from the Diamondbacks in July and should remain useful in mixed fantasy leagues in 2015.

Martin Prado is likely done for the season after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.

Prado, who was already playing through a hamstring injury, simply doesn't have enough time to make it back before the end of the year. The 31-year-old played well after coming over to the Yankees at the deadline and remains under contract for the next two seasons.

Martin Prado's pinch-hit eighth-inning two-run home run helped the Yankees come from behind late to defeat the Rays on Thursday.

After Rays starter Alex Cobb lost his no-hit bid with one out in the eighth inning, Prado came off of the bench to hit for Brendan Ryan and manager Joe Girardi's decision paid off. Prado lifted a Brad Boxberger offering to left field, halving the Rays' lead to 4-2. It's already the sixth home run he has hit since joining the Yankees at the trade deadline, surpassing his four-month total with the D'Backs. Along with his 11 home runs, Prado has knocked in 57 runs and is slashing .278/.319/.407 overall.

Wed, Sep 10, 2014 03:40:00 PM

Martin Prado is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rays due to a lingering left hamstring injury.

Prado injured his hamstring one week ago and has been playing at less than 100 percent since returning to the lineup. The Yankees are playing it safe with him for now.
Tue, Sep 9, 2014 03:57:00 PM

Martin Prado finished 3-for-4 in the Yankees' win over the Royals on Saturday in New York.

Prado had been sidelined for much of this week with a mild left hamstring strain but showed no lingering discomfort on Saturday in the Bronx, tallying two doubles and a single. He has found new life since being traded away from the Diamondbacks, now batting .309 with an .860 OPS in 30 games for the Yankees.
Sat, Sep 6, 2014 07:05:00 PM

Martin Prado (hamstring) said Thursday that he's not sure he'll play before the end of the weekend.

Prado did some jogging Thursday, but he seems less optimistic about the condition of his left hamstring than the Yankees do. It doesn't appear that he'll require a lengthy absence, but perhaps he'll be sidelined a bit longer than initially anticipated.
