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.

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.

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.
May 29 - 1:14 AM

Martin Prado hit a solo home run -- his first round tripper of the year -- in Tuesday's home loss to the Padres.

Prado finished 1-for-4. The veteran third baseman's slugging percentage is down for the third straight year, and his current .348 mark would easily be the worst of his career if it held. In other words, it was good to see him put one in the seats. Prado has been a fantasy dud with a .264 average, zero steals and 21 RBI.
May 28 - 12:44 AM

Martin Prado went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple and a run scored in a losing effort against the Mets in the nightcap of Sunday's twinbill.

Prado is off to a slow start at the dish this season, hitting .255/.303/.321 with zero home runs and 19 RBI. While his multi-position eligibility is nice, fantasy owners may have a hard time sticking with him unless he can pick up the production offensively.

Martin Prado's vision checked out fine Monday.

Prado left Sunday's game due to blurred vision in his left eye, but it's not considered serious. He should be back in action soon.
May 19 - 5:51 PM

Martin Prado was removed from Sunday's game against the Dodgers due to blurred vision in his left eye.

Eric Chavez came on to replace Prado. It's unclear at this time how serious the injury may be and what type of potential timetable he may miss. The Diamondbacks should have an update on his status after Sunday's game.
May 18 - 5:59 PM

Martin Prado went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in a win over the White Sox on Sunday.

The RBI was just his 12th of the year. Prado is still hitting an unsightly .248/.288/.307 on the year, but he's had two hits in each of his past two games. Maybe he's ready to go on a run at the plate.
May 11 - 5:56 PM

Martin Prado is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting a day of rest. Eric Chavez is playing third base Sunday in Prado's place. Chris Owings is also sitting out, as Cliff Pennington is covering shortstop.

Martin Prado went 3-for-4 in Wednesday's loss to the Mets.

Prado had just two hits in his previous 20 at-bats coming into the game. The third baseman didn't cross the plate, as the scuffling Diamondbacks' offense registered only two solo home runs on the day, but he's still scored 10 runs through the team's first 18 games.

Martin Prado is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

It's just a routine day off. Eric Chavez is handling the hot corner Sunday in Prado's place. Miguel Montero is also getting a breather, as Tuffy Gosewisch is catching Trevor Cahill.

Martin Prado went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

They were all singles, but Prado will take it after he entered the game hitting just .216. Unfortunately for the Diamondbacks, no one else had more than one hit and they mustered just seven base knocks total. Prado has batted cleanup in every game this season for Arizona.

Martin Prado (finger) is in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Saturday night against the Rockies.

Prado left Friday night's game with a lacerated left index finger. It obviously wasn't a serious cut.
Apr 5 - 4:40 PM

Martin Prado was removed from Friday's contest against the Rockies due to a lacerated left index finger.

No stitches were required, and the D'Backs are calling him day-to-day. He may get Saturday off as a precaution, but shouldn't miss any extended period of time.
