by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Yankees infielder Martin Prado hit his seventh home run Saturday against the Rays.

Hitters to start in Week 21


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/16/2014) Need a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 21 (Aug. 18-24)? Kurt Suzuki, Billy Butler, Kolten Wong, Martin Prado, Danny Santana and Kole Calhoun might just fit the bill.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Martin Prado slugs first Yankee home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Yankees outfielder Martin Prado went 2 for 5 with a double and a solo home run in his team's 4-3 loss to the Tigers Tuesday.

Both extra-base hits, which were Prado's first and second since joining his new team, came off Detroit starter David Price. Prado is 4 for 16 in five games with the Yankees since beign traded. He owns a .270/.317/.375 line with six home runs and 43 RBI in 419 at-bats.


Veteran Yankees clear waivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) The Yankees placed infielders Martin Prado and Stephen Drew, as well as outfielder Brett Gardner on waivers, and all three have cleared, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman Tuesday.  

All three are now eligible to be traded during the month of August, though there is no indication the team is looking to move any of them. 


Martin Prado getting first Yankees start in right field


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Newly acquired Yankees infielder Martin Prado made his team debut Saturday against the Red Sox, as he is penciled into the starting lineup batting eighth and playing right field.

Prado is expected to see most of his playing time in right field, though the versatile utility man could see time all over the field.  He was hitting just .270/.317/.370 in 403 at-bats prior to the trade. 


Martin Prado unlikely to find any Yankee Magic


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Yankees acquired super-utility man Martin Prado just before the trade deadline from the Diamondabcks, and will likely begin plugging him in around the diamond. However, he might find playing time a bit harder to come by in New York than Arizona, where he was seeing the majority of his playing time at third base.

The Yankees only obvious holw needing to be filled right now is right field, a position Prado has logged just two innings at in his career. Prado should still play somewhat regularly, but is unlikely to have an everyday spot in the Yankees lineup locked down unless the team opts to test him out in right field over the struggling Ichiro Suzuki.

Prado is useful for Fantasy for many of the same reasons that he is in real life, since you can slot him anywhere a need arises and count on decent production. Unfortunately, he isn't a productive enough hitter to be worth counting on as a regular starter each week if he is only starting 3-4 times a week. Consider him droppable in many mixed leagues at this point.


Yankees trade for Diamondbacks infielder Martin Prado


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) The Yankees announced Thursday they acquired infielder Martin Prado from the Diamondbacks. Prado, who is under contract through the 2016 season, is batting .270 with five home runs and 42 RBI in 106 games.

Martin Prado ties career high with five RBI


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Diamondbacks infielder Martin Prado tied a career-high with five RBI during a 10-6 win Saturday at Philadelphia.

Prado, who finished 3 for 4, had a home run off Cliff Lee leading off the third inning, added an RBI single in the fourth, had a two-RBI double in the sixth and a sac fly in the 10th.

Prado is batting .333 with a .472 slugging percentage, .844 OPS, two home runs, four doubles, eight RBI and eight runs and one stolen base in 20 July games.


Arizona might not be active at trade deadline


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) It seems unlikely the Diamondbacks will trade shortstop Chris Owings, outfielder A.J. Pollock, catcher Miguel Montero and pitcher Wade Miley by the July 31 trade deadline, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Miley is drawing substantial interest, but general manager Kevin Towers said trading the left-handed starter "doesn't make a whole lot of sense since we're trying to acquire starting pitchers."

Officials with other teams also told Heyman that the Diamondbacks don't seem eager to trade veteran Martin Prado or reliever Brad Ziegler. One general manager interested in trading for Prado believes the Diamondbacks won't deal him because of his leadership and work ethic.


Hitters to start in Week 16


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Need a sleeper hitter for the shortened Fantasy Week 16 (July 18-20)? Stephen Vogt, Adam LaRoche, Martin Prado, Pablo Sandoval, Arismendy Alcantara and Torii Hunter might just fit the bill.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Hitters to target for the second half


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/13/2014) Need a sleeper for the second half? Matt Adams, Martin Prado, Manny Machado, J.J. Hardy and C.J. Cron are some of my favorites.

Check out my latest column to find out why.


Martin Prado, Aaron Hill linked to trade rumors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Diamondbacks infielders Aaron Hill and Martin Prado continue to be mentioned in trade rumors, according to The Arizona Republic.

Hill has even been linked to a trade with the Blue Jays. He played for Toronto from 2005-11 before he was traded to Arizona in Aug. 2011.


Martin Prado homers in three-hit performance Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Diamondbacks third baseman Martin Prado went 3 for 4 with a home run and two RBI in his team's 6-4 loss to the Dodgers Saturday.

Prado picked up his first RBI with a fourth-inning single and then added another with a solo home run to lead off the ninth inning, but his blast wasn't enough to close the gap in the loss. He has hit .281/.326/.385 with three home runs and 29 RBI in 270 at-bats.


Martin Prado reaches three times Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Diamondbacks infielder Martin Prado reached base three times Thursday against the Rockies.

Prado hit a sacrifice fly in his first at-bat. He started picking up hits after that. Prado singled in the third, seventh and ninth innings. He finished the game 3 for 4, with one run scored and one RBI. Prado is hitting .283/.332/.378 over 233 at-bats.


Martin Prado back to must-start status


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Over his first 37 games last season, Martin Prado hit .223 with a .603 OPS only to salvage his season by hitting .303 with an .800 OPS over his final 118 games.

Over his first 37 games this season, he hit .236 with a .580 OPS only to ... well, we don't really know, do we? But considering he's hitting .341 (29 for 85) with two home runs and a .894 OPS over his last 23 games, we should have a pretty good idea where he'll end up.

It's the same place he always ends up, with a batting average between .285 and .300 and an OPS between .750 and .800. And for a player eligible at three positions (second base, third base and outfield), that's enough to make him unbenchable in most leagues.

Particularly Head-to-Head points formats, where his low strikeout rate only adds to his production. Yup, he's turned things around there, too, striking out just nine times during that 23-game stretch. I'll be surprised if he strikes out even 70 times this season. He's done it only once before.


Hitters to start in Week 10


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/31/2014) Need a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 10 (June 2-8)? Wilson Ramos, Lucas Duda, Martin Prado, Lonnie Chisenhall, J.J. Hardy and Khris Davis are just a few of the possibilities you'll find in my Start and Sit Hitters column.

Find out what makes them so special here.


Martin Prado homers in blowout win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Diamondbacks infielder Martin Prado went 2 for 5 with a home run and three RBI in his team's 12-6 win over the Padres Wednesday.

Prado followed up an eight-run first inning by the Diamondbacks, in which he smacked an RBI single, by slugging a two-run home run in the second inning. He has hit both of his home runs this season in his last two games, now giving him a .267/.315/.364 line with 24 RBI in 206 at-bats.


Martin Prado doesn't miss a game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Diamondbacks third baseman Martin Prado was in the starting lineup Tuesday at St. Louis after leaving Sunday's game due to vision problems. Prado is batting .344 (11 for 32) with two doubles and six RBI in his last eight games.

Prado was removed from Sunday's game due to blurred vision in his left eye. If he doesn't experience any issues Tuesday, he seems likely to be back in the starting lineup, Prado has hit .256/.298/.318 with 16 RBI in 176 at-bats.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Hitters to sit in Week 7


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
