The Marlins are going to be "mindful" about Martin Prado's playing time this year.
The 32-year-old is coming off a productive season (.288, 63 RBI in 500 at-bats) despite battling shoulder and wrist issues. Chris Johnson would likely spell Prado at third on his days off. Derek Dietrich and Miguel Rojas could also see time at the hot corner. Feb 11 - 12:36 PM

Martin Prado (wrist) had a pinch-hit single in his return to action Thursday.

Prado hasn't started in a week because of a left wrist injury, but him being able to pinch-hit is obviously a good sign. He could return to the lineup at some point over the weekend.

Martin Prado had a single and a home run in five at-bats in Wednesday's win over the Mets.

Martin Prado delivered a walk-off sacrifice fly in the ninth inning as the Marlins came back to beat the Mets on Sunday.

Justin Bour knotted the game at 3-3 with a solo home run in the eighth inning, and Prado sent the Marlins home in the next frame. He had the bases loaded with one out against Tyler Clippard, and sent a fly ball to left field to bring home J.T. Realmuto. Prado was 1-for-4 on the afternoon. He's hitting .283/.326/.382 with seven home runs and 48 RBI.

Martin Prado went 5-for-6 with a walk-off RBI double in Friday's 6-5, 11-inning win over the Mets.

Two of Prado's five hits went for doubles, with the last one being the one that ended it all. Christian Yelich scored all the way from first on Prado's double in the bottom of the 11th, sending the few fans who attend September Marlin games home happy. With the five-hit game (his first of the season), the 31-year-old infielder is slashing .284/.328/.385 with seven homers and 47 RBI.

Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Nationals.

Prado's two-run homer against Nationals starter Max Scherzer in the third inning boosted his overall total of taters to seven. He also scored twice. He's been on a mini power surge over the last week, having hit two homers and two doubles while working himself up to a seven-game hitting streak. That being said, his overall season triple-slash remains relatively punch-less at .274/.320/.374.

Martin Prado went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-2 loss to the Pirates.

Prado tied the game up at 1-1 in the first inning, driving a solo home run to left field off of Jeff Locke. The infielder has hit for more power lately, hitting two doubles and two home runs within the last week, but it mostly hasn't been there for him this season. Prado is batting .270/.316/.364 with six home runs and 40 RBI.

According to's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins are open to a waive trade of Martin Prado.

Frisaro adds, however, that a team would probably have to overpay. Prado is under contract through the 2016 season and the Fish believe he can help them contend after a disappointing 2015. The 31-year-old is batting .270/.315/.353 in 88 games this season as the Marlins' primary third baseman.

Martin Prado had three hits and a walk in four plate appearances in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Prado singled in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning and later scored on a J.T. Realmuto ground out. He has drawn some trade interest, though he was mostly linked to the Royals, who recently acquired Ben Zobrist. Prado has had a subpar offensive year, batting .280/.321/.375 with four home runs and 27 RBI.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Marlins are now "now open to at least contemplate" trading Martin Prado.

Previous reports indicated that the Marlins planned to keep Prado, but they are softening on that stance just a couple of days away from the trade deadline. The 31-year-old is owed $11 million next season, though the Yankees are covering $3 million. He's capable of playing multiple positions and should have appeal to multiple contenders.
Tue, Jul 28, 2015 01:33:00 PM's Joe Frisaro is hearing that the Royals' interest in Martin Prado is "minimal."

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi connected the Royals and Prado on Sunday night, but the veteran infielder is apparently not high on Kansas City's priority list heading into the July 31 trade deadline. Or maybe this is all posturing. Prado, 31, is batting .273/.312/.369 with four home runs and 26 RBI in 73 games this season for Miami. Ben Zobrist has also been connected recently to the AL Central-leading Royals.

According to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports, the Royals have interest in acquiring Martin Prado from the Marlins.

Sources tell Morosi that the Marlins would have to include cash to help facilitate the deal. With the veteran's versatility, he would be a nice upgrade to the Royals offense. He's hitting .277/.316/.374 with four homers and 26 RBI in 72 games on the season.
