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

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said that in addition to ramping up his running, Prado has also been fielding grounders and taking part in hitting activities. 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.

It still sounds like he'll be ready for the start of the regular season, but the Marlins want their own medical staff to confirm as much.
