Martin Prado went 2-for-4 and hit a two-run homer in Wednesday's loss to the Mets.

His first-inning blast gave the Marlins an early lead but they couldn't hang on. He has a stellar .305 batting average although his counting stats lag behind. He has hit just eight home runs to go with 75 RBI and 69 runs scored. The batting average is nice but he doesn't do enough of the other things to make himself a quality fantasy player.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins and Martin Prado have agreed to a three-year, $40 million extension.

Prado was previously due to hit a weak free agent market this winter, but he's now locked up through his age-35 season in 2019. Acquired from the Yankees in December of 2014, Prado has hit .297/.350/.405 over two seasons with Miami and has emerged as a clubhouse leader. The Marlins made it a top priority to keep him in the fold and they were successful.

Martin Prado delivered a two-run double in Friday’s loss to the Braves.

His first-inning double gave the Marlins an early 2-0 lead, but they were held off the board the rest of the way. With seven homers, Prado hasn’t shown much punch this year, but he has driven in 73 runs to go along with a .308/.363/.418 batting line.

Martin Prado was ejected from Sunday's game versus the Phillies for arguing balls and strikes.

Prado tossed his bat after he didn't like a called third strike by home plate umpire Dale Scott in the top of the third inning. Derek Dietrich moved from left field to third base to replace Prado and Ichiro Suzuki entered the game in left.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins "want to keep" impending free agent Martin Prado and "a two-year deal is a growing possibility."

It's unclear at this point if the two sides have had formal contract extension negotiations, but it appears there's a mutual interest in keeping Prado in Miami. Prado will turn 33 next month, but he's had an excellent season with a .309/.361/.418 batting line and seven homers. If they can retain him on a two-year deal it could certainly be worth exploring.

Martin Prado had a nice night at the dish in Saturday's loss to the Padres, going 4-for-4 with a double.

The Marlins were shut out in the ballgame, only mustering nine total hits as a team, so Prado was certainly the driving force of the offense. He's quietly having a very nice season for the Marlins, slashing .323/.376/.436 with seven homers and 61 RBI.

Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Reds.

Prado had a two-run single in the seventh inning to pull the Marlins to within a run, but it wasn't enough in the end. Still, it was a good night for the 32-year-old, who now has four multi-hit games in his last six contests. It's no surprise, then, that Prado and his .327 average rank third in the National League in hitting. He's also sporting a .380 on-base percentage and .446 slugging percentage through 115 games.

The 32-year-old is having another good offensive year and has settled in near the top of the Marlins lineup, batting .322/.375/.439 overall.

Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

Prado connected with a Michael Wacha pitch for the two-run shot, his fourth of the season. Prado has been on quite the heater of late, going 14-for-29 in his last eight games, with five multi-hit contests in that span. The good stretch has his season line up to .325/.376/.428.

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.
