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. Fri, Dec 19, 2014 02:34:00 PM

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.
