Martin Prado's turnaround not all it seems


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/26/2014) Martin Prado is one of the hottest hitters in baseball right now, batting .417 (15 for 36) with three home runs and six doubles in his last nine games. The good news is a high number of his Fantasy owners have benefited from it since he's been labeled a "start" in the Start and Sit Hitters column the last two weeks. The bad news is he's only gotten that label because of favorable matchups.

It's a chicken-and-egg scenario. Has Prado legitimately turned the corner, or is he just taking advantage of favorable matchups?.

You tell me. For the season, he's batting .351 with a .991 OPS against lefties compared to .253 and .640 against righties. The Yankees have faced five left-handed starting pitchers in their last nine games, and two of Prado's three home runs during that stretch have come against lefties. The other came against James Shields, who clearly didn't have his A-game Monday night.

In those nine games, Prado has struck out seven times in 36 at-bats, about once every five at-bats. That's even worse than his season rate, which is already a career worst. He hasn't walked even once.

Enjoy it while it lasts, but I'm thinking once the left-handers thin out, so does Prado's production.


Martin Prado belts ninth home run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Yankees infielder Martin Prado belted his ninth home run Monday against the Royals.

Martin Prado remains on roll with three-hit game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Martin Prado has heated up in the Big Apple after a slow start.

Prado slammed two doubles and a single to help the Yankees defeat the White Sox on Saturday. He has 12 hits, including five doubles, in the last seven games to sweeten his stat line to .271/.301/.486. He has nine RBI and six runs scored during that stretch.


Martin Prado wins it for Yankees late


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Yankees infielder Martin Prado played a big part in Friday's 4-3 win over the White Sox.

Prado got the Yankees on the board in the third inning with his two-run home run, and then won it with an RBI single in the ninth. He finished the game 2 for 5 with three RBI and one run scored in the win.

Prado has hit three home runs in 19 games since joining the Yankees, but hasn't done much otherwise. He is hitting just .242/.275/.439 over 66 games with his new club.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.

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.
