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.

Hitters to sit in Week 7


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Of course, whether or not you should actually sit them depends on what else is available to you. For additional context, check out the latest edition of Start and Sit Hitters.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
