Acquired:Acquired in a trade with Arizona in 2014.
|Assets:||Shows a very good eye and patience at the plate, helping him hit for a high average with gap power. A good all-round run-producer, he also brings a solid glove anywhere he plays--in the infield or outfield.|
|Flaws:||Doesn't have top-tier range and speed, limiting him somewhat in the field and on the bases. His lack of speed is what's missing from his table-setting arsenal. Also lacks big home-run power.|
|Career Potential:||Excellent contact hitter with versatility.|

NewsYankees 3B/OF Martin Prado will make his first start in a New York uniform in right field Saturday.
ImpactChase Headley is at third base, so Prado will probably play mostly in the outfield. He's hitting just .269 this season and has four homers and two steals. He's a nice multi-position option but isn't hitting enough at the moment to be in fantasy lineups.

NewsArizona third baseman Martin Prado owns a .419 career average (13-for-31) with one homer and zero strikeouts against Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez.
ImpactThe two were frequent opponents when both played in the NL East. With a .272 average, four homers, 36 RBI, 40 runs and two steals in 375 at-bats, Prado hasn't been a good fantasy option this season, but he's a decent option Wednesday.
Prado has three hits, RBI in loss to Giants | 07/13/2014 9:51 PM
NewsMartin Prado went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Giants.
ImpactPrado has hits in 11 of 12 July games to raise his line to .275/.321/.370. The run production hasn't followed, unfortunately -- he's scored four runs in July, and Sunday's RBI was just his second this month.

NewsMartin Prado went 2-for-3 with a walk in Tuesday's 2-1 loss versus the Marlins.
ImpactHe's now riding a seven-game hitting streak, though this was the first multi-hit varietal of the bunch. Prado is trying to close out the first half strong after struggling through a disappointing season. He's slashing .271/.318/.367 with four homers and 35 RBI.
Blue Jays scouting Arizona's Prado, Hill | 07/04/2014 4:42 PM
NewsESPN's Jim Bowden reports that the Blue Jays have scouted Martin Prado, Aaron Hill and Chase Headley "heavily."
Jim Bowden on Twitter
ImpactWe 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 goes 3-for-4, homers | 06/15/2014 12:52 AM
NewsMartin Prado went 3-for-4 and hit his third homer Saturday against the Dodgers.
ImpactIt'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.
Prado goes deep for 2nd consecutive contest | 05/29/2014 1:14 AM
NewsMartin Prado hit a home run in his second straight game Wednesday versus the Padres.
ImpactPrado 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.
Prado blasts first homer of the year | 05/28/2014 12:44 AM
NewsMartin Prado hit a solo home run -- his first round tripper of the year -- in Tuesday's home loss to the Padres.
ImpactPrado 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.

NewsMartin 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.
ImpactPrado 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.

ImpactPrado started slowly in his new surroundings but he's made up for it recently. He's destroying the month of August, as he's now 29-for-75 (.387) with three home runs and 18 RBI. He also ran his hitting streak to eight games with the home run in the fourth inning. The hot streak has raised his average to a more-representative .282 for the season.

NewsMartin Prado went 1-for-4 Monday against the Marlins.
ImpactOwners hoping for Prado to shake his season-long slump as the weather began heating up have been disappointed, as June has been the veteran's worst at the plate thus far. Prado hasn't hit a homer since late-April and has logged an RBI in just two games this month. He's batting an anemic .244/.296/.335 in his first season in Arizona.

NewsMartin Prado went 4-for-4 with two doubles Sunday in a win against the Padres.
ImpactPrado has put together two straight multi-hit games after going 3-for-4 on Saturday and looks to be moving in the right direction. He's batting .277/.304/.361 with four doubles and three RBI in May after a sluggish start to the season.
Martin Prado in a 2-for-19 slump | 05/22/2013 6:13 PM
NewsMartin Prado went 0-for-4 on Wednesday and has fallen into a 2-for-19 slump.
ImpactPrado is still hitting for a better average this month and he did in April, but that's not saying much. He's gone 12 straight games without scoring a run. He has two runs scored and four RBI in 20 games overall for the month. And not only is his season OBP a lousy .283, but he's been caught on three of his four steal attempts. Good thing the Diamondbacks gave him that four-year, $40 million deal before some team could blow them out of the water this winter.
Prado slowly working way out of slump | 05/17/2013 3:00 AM
NewsMartin Prado is batting .275 in May.
ImpactSlowly but surely, Prado is digging himself out of an awful early-season slump. In his first month with the Snakes, Prado slashed an anemic .217/.266/.348. Over 15 games this month, he's batting a reasonable .275/.339/.333. It's certainly not the start Arizona expected after acquiring Prado in the Justin Upton trade and subsequently signed him to a four-year, $40 million contract extension. Sporting his trademark multi-position eligibility and playing in cozy Chase Field, now might be the time to buy low. Prado entered the year a .319/.370/.447 career hitter in Arizona.

Martin Prado reaches four times | 04/13/2013 1:04 AM
NewsMartin Prado reached all four times up Friday, going 2-for-2 with two walks and an RBI.

NewsMartin Prado is batting just .273/.298/.409 with one homer and four RBI this season.

ImpactThe four-year deal covers Prado's final season of arbitration eligibility and his first three seasons of free agency.

He batted .301/.359/.438 with 10 home runs, 70 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 156 games last summer for Atlanta, and should get a slight boost in fantasy value in Arizona.

ImpactPrado is arbitration-eligible for the final time this winter after batting .301/.359/.438 with 10 home runs, 70 RBI and a .796 OPS in 156 games last season. There isn't much of a difference between the two sides, so they should be able to meet somewhere around the midpoint.
