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.
Report suggests Marlins could trade deposed 3B McGehee
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/19/14) The deal that sent Martin Prado to the Marlins could result in 2014 surprise Casey McGehee being expendable, per the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Prado is expected to assume the role of every-day third baseman for Miami. McGehee flashed virtually no power last season, but drove in 76 runs, batted .287 and committed just seven errors.
Marlins, Yankees formally announce five-player trade
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/19/14) The Marlins and Yankees formally announced a five player trade on Friday, per MLB.com. The Marlins acquired infielder Martin Prado and pitcher David Phelps from New York in exchange for Nathan Eovaldi, Garrett Jones and Domingo German. Miami also received an undisclosed amount of cash in the deal.
Prado hit .282 with 12 homers and 58 RBI in 143 games played between the Yankees and Diamondbacks. Phelps went 5-5 with a 4.38 ERA and 92 strikeouts over 113 innings pitched.
Eovaldi registered a 4.37 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP and 142:43 K:BB ratio over 199 2/3 innings as a starter in Miami. Jones hit .246 with 15 homers and 53 RBI over 496 at-bats in his lone season with the Marlins.
|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.
