Marlins could turn to Ichiro Suzuki to fill void in LF
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) With Christian Yelich on the 15-day disabled list with a back injury, the Marlins could turn to Ichiro Suzuki to fill that void in left field, MLB.com reports.
Suzuki has made seven starts this season for Miami, five of which have come at right field. He is hitting .257 (9 for 35) with a triple and an RBI in 16 appearances.
Although the Marlins don't have a true backup outfielder on the roster, third baseman Martin Prado has some experience as a corner outfielder. Donovan Solano has also seen some playing time at left field back in 2012.
Marlins 3B Martin Prado totals 4 RBI in win over Phillies
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Marlins third baseman Martin Prado had a huge game offensively in Thursday afternoon's 9-1 win over the Phillies.
Prado went 3 for 5 with a double. He totaled four RBI as well. Prado hit a two-run single in the fourth inning and then hit a two-run double in the sixth. The four RBI moves Prado's total to seven for the season.
Marlins' Martin Prado hits first home run Thursday vs. Mets
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Marlins third baseman Martin Prado went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 7-5 loss to the Mets Thursday.
Prado had managed just six singles and a double in 31 at-bats coming into Thursday's game, but he was able to slug his first home run of the season in the fourth inning off Mets starter Dillon Gee. He has hit .257/.289/.371 with two RBI and three runs scored in 10 games.
Marlins' Saltalamacchia, Prado not in starting lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia and third baseman Martin Prado are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.
Don Kelly draws the start at third base and bats sixth, while Jeff Mathis will bat eighth and work behind the plate. Both Prado and Saltalamacchia will likely be back in the lineup Monday.
|2014 summary: Martin Prado wasn't having a typical season with the Diamondbacks, as he was batting .270 with only 17 doubles through the end of July. At that point, the Diamondbacks traded him to the Yankees in exchange for catching prospect Pete O'Brien, and Prado's season began to turn around. Doing what he normally does, Prado played where the Yankees needed him -- second base, third base, right field and left field -- and he hit .316 with nine doubles in 37 games. In fact, Prado even provided some unexpected home run power, blasting seven homers. His season ended prematurely in mid-September, when he underwent an appendectomy. The Yankees ended Prado's 37-game tenure with the team with an offseason trade to the Marlins.|
Playing time status: Prado will be ready for spring training, where he will settle in as the Marlins' everyday third baseman, and his versatility should do nothing but increase his playing time.
2015 outlook: Though Prado revived his batting average late in the season, he accelerated his strikeout rate, which had already been above his normal rate. He needed a 27 percent line drive rate to buoy his batting average, and he may not repeat that mark. If Prado is not flirting with .300, he is probably not finishing among the top 12 second or third basemen, so owners can wait until the middle-to-late rounds in standard mixed leagues to draft him.
