Martin Prado went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI against the Astros on Tuesday.

Prado started off his Yankees career 7-for-43, but he's 6-for-11 with a homer and two doubles his last three games. Hopefully, he'll prove to be a steady mixed-league performer the rest of the way.

Martin Prado went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Friday against the Rays.

Prado's struggles in pinstripes continue. He has just one hit over his last 17 at-bats and is hitting just .163 (7-for-43) with one homer, one double, and two RBI in 13 games since coming over to the Yankees at the trade deadline.
Aug 15 - 10:16 PM

Martin Prado went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Saturday against the Indians.

The Yankees collected just five hits on the day against Corey Kluber, Scott Atchison, Bryan Shaw, and Cody Allen. Prado is 6-for-30 (.200) with a homer and a double since coming over from the Diamondbacks on July 31.
Aug 9 - 4:39 PM

Martin Prado hit his first Yankee home run, finishing 2-for-5 with a double overall in Tuesday's 12-inning loss.

Prado hit a solo homer off of David Price in the fifth, extending the Yankees' lead to 3-1 at the time. It marks his first major contribution since joining the Yankees in a trade on July 31. Counting his time with both the D'Backs and the Yankees, Prado has a .270/.317/.375 slash line with six home runs and 43 RBI on the season.
Aug 5 - 11:33 PM

Martin Prado is in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday, batting eighth and playing right field.

Prado is expected to function as a super-utility player for the Yankees, filling in all over the diamond. Ichiro Suzuki will get a breather in this one.
Aug 2 - 12:48 PM

Yankees acquired INF/OF Martin Prado from the Diamondbacks for C Peter O’Brien and either a player to be named later or cash.

New York buys low on a formerly rock-solid veteran batting just .270/.317/.370 with five homers this season. Over a nine-year career, spent between the Braves and Snakes, Prado is a career .290 hitter with a .340 OBP. Prado can play all over the place -- with first base, second base, third base, shortstop, leftfield and rightfield on his resume -- but he's expected to get most of his at-bats in right field. Because of that, this trade is bad news for Ichiro Suzuki's fantasy value. What was left of it, anyway.
Jul 31 - 4:51 PM

Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees have acquired Martin Prado from the Diamondbacks.

First base prospect Peter O'Brien is expected to head to the Diamondbacks in the deal. Prado has hit just .270/.317/.370 with five homers this season, but he's been much better in the past and gives the Yankees another option at second and third base.
Jul 31 - 4:20 PM

Martin Prado drove in five runs Saturday as the Diamondbacks beat the Phillies 10-6 in extra innings.

Prado had a massive night, drawing a walk in the first inning, slugging a solo homer in the third inning, smacking an RBI single in the fourth inning, and adding a two-run double in the sixth. He then hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the top of the 10th inning before Nick Evans slugged a three-run shot. Prado is batting just .280/.325/.383 in 102 total games this season, but he's capable of finishing on a high note.
Jul 26 - 11:35 PM

Martin Prado was ejected from Friday's game in the eighth inning for arguing balls and strikes.

Prado was run by home plate ump Cory Blaser after passing by him on his way to the dugout following a groundout. Kirk Gibson came out to defend his player and was tossed as well.
Jul 19 - 12:38 AM

Martin Prado went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Prado has hits in 11 of 12 July games to raise his line to .275/.321/.370. The run production hasn't followed, unfortunately -- he's scored four runs in July, and Sunday's RBI was just his second this month.
Jul 13 - 9:51 PM

Martin Prado went 2-for-3 with a walk in Tuesday's 2-1 loss versus the Marlins.

He's now riding a seven-game hitting streak, though this was the first multi-hit varietal of the bunch. Prado is trying to close out the first half strong after struggling through a disappointing season. He's slashing .271/.318/.367 with four homers and 35 RBI.
Jul 9 - 12:22 AM

ESPN's Jim Bowden reports that the Blue Jays have scouted Martin Prado, Aaron Hill and Chase Headley "heavily."

We already knew about Headley, but the Blue Jays being connected to Hill and Prado is new. The Jays would like to add a bat at either third or second base, with the idea that Brett Lawrie would play the other position. Prado (.268/.313/.360), Hill (.248/.285/.368) and Headley (.202/.287/.318) are all having disappointing seasons. Headley will be a free agent after the season, while Prado and Hill are under contract through 2016.
Jul 4 - 4:42 PM

Martin Prado went 3-for-4 and hit his third homer Saturday against the Dodgers.

It's Prado's fourth three-hit game of the month, and he's hitting .358 in June, though that comes with just one walk and four RBI in 53 at-bats. He still figures to get better, but he's been a bust in fantasy leagues to date.
Jun 15 - 12:52 AM

Martin Prado hit a home run in his second straight game Wednesday versus the Padres.

Prado finished 2-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored. His second inning two-run shot off Padres long reliever Donn Roach followed an eight-run opening stanza and gave Arizona a 10-0 lead. Prado went 52 games without a long fly but now has two in the past 48 hours; he's also collected an extra-base hit in four straight. Perhaps he can salvage his fantasy stock for disappointed mixed league owners after all. Prado is now slashing .267/.315/.364 with 24 RBI.
