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.
Jul 23 - 11:56 PM

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.
May 8 - 5:20 PM

Martin Prado went 3-for-5 with a run scored Friday against the Brewers.

Prado had two singles and a double. He now has three hits in three straight games, which has raised his batting average from .333 to .397 in the process. Only Cardinals rookie shortstop Aledmys Diaz (.420) has a higher batting average in the majors. Prado finished with nine home runs last season and has yet to go deep so far this season, so his upside is a bit limited in fantasy leagues, but he can be a useful piece in deeper formats.
Apr 30 - 12:50 AM

Marlins activated 3B Martin Prado from the paternity leave list.

Prado was excused from the team on Saturday afternoon to welcome a new child. The veteran third baseman returns Tuesday to an impressive .340/.382/.420 batting line.
Apr 26 - 4:10 PM

Marlins placed 3B Martin Prado on the paternity list.

That might explain why Prado hasn't been in the lineup the last two nights. Left-hander Cody Ege was called up from Triple-A New Orleans in the corresponding roster move. Prado should be back in a few days.
Apr 23 - 4:19 PM

Martin Prado is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

Prado isn't known to be hurt, but this is the second time in the last three games he's been benched. Derek Dietrich is starting at third base and J.T. Realmuto is in the No. 2 spot in the lineup.
Apr 22 - 5:54 PM

Martin Prado is not in the Marlins' lineup Wednesday.

Derek Dietrich will start at third base and bat sixth for the Marlins against Nationals right-hander Joe Ross. It's just a day off for Prado, who's batting .333/.380/.422 in 50 plate appearances this season.
