Marlins | No new deal yet for Martin Prado

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 23:25:20 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado has not been contacted regarding a new contract yet, but they could delay that decision until the offseason. Miami Herald sportswriter Barry Jackson speculates if the Marlins re-sign Prado, then 2B Derek Dietrich or 2B Dee Gordon could be dealt for pitching.

Fantasy Tip: Prado is one of Miami's better hitters, so it is likely the team would make an effort to keep him. For now, don't worry about Prado's status and keep him in your fantasy lineups.

Marlins | Martin Prado sitting vs. Mets

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:31:50 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. SS Miguel Rojas is starting at third base and batting second against New York Mets SP Logan Verrett Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Prado is a sneaky fantasy contributor who has excellent contact skills. He currently has 41 runs, 32 RBI and a .314/.364/.409 slash line. However, with just three bombs and a swipe, his fantasy ownership should be limited to deep mixed and NL-only setups. Rojas owns a career .586 OPS and has no fantasy upside.

Marlins | Martin Prado provides heroics

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 23:07:38 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado went 1-for-5 with a game-winning solo home run in the top of the 11th inning Monday, July 18, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Prado is hitting .320 overall, and he is especially useful against left-handed pitching. He is worth using in NL-only fantasy leagues and DFS play.

Marlins | Martin Prado reaches four times

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 20:07:19 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado went 3-for-3 with two doubles, two RBI and a walk in a 4-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Prado doesn't pack much power, but his average is up to .323, and he is worth owning in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats.

Marlins | Martin Prado sitting out

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 07:49:22 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 6, with 3B Chris Johnson hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is hitting .364 over the last week, so he has some low-end appeal. However, he's facing Jacob deGrom today, and it's not the best matchup for that low-end range.

Marlins | Top of the lineup comes through for MIA

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 05:22:26 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto, 3B Martin Prado and OF Christian Yelich each had three hits in a 5-2 win over the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: All three players have averages over .300 and slugging marks over .400, and Realmuto in particular is on a hot streak. He was moved to the top of the order for this game, and don't be surprised if you see that more often while his bat is hot.

Marlins | Two Fish out Wednesday

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 07:12:56 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado and C J.T. Realmuto are out of the lineup Wednesday, June 22, with SS Adeiny Hechavarria hitting second and C Jeff Mathis hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Hechavarria is hitting .242 this month in what has been a "meh" season for him. He has a good matchup against John Gant, and he's a low-end option today, though. Mathis doesn't have a potent enough bat for much consideration in DFS.

Marlins | Four-hit game for Martin Prado

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 22:31:51 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado had three singles and a triple in five at-bats Saturday, June 11, against the Arizona Diamondbacks to push his average up to .323.

Fantasy Tip: Prado is a player rumored to be on the move by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. For now he is a strong NL-only fantasy option for his high average, but if he moves to a contender and a lesser role, his fantasy appeal would obviously take a hit.

Marlins | Martin Prado not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 31 May 2016 12:38:13 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 31, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. 3B Chris Johnson is in for Prado, and he will hit seventh against Pirates SP Gerrit Cole.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Prado is getting a normal night off, so DFS players should avoid Prado accordingly. Johnson carries little fantasy value (7-for-31, .226 average at home) with a .217 batting average overall.

Marlins | Martin Prado continues to produce

Tue, 24 May 2016 11:08:25 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado is hitting .348 heading into Tuesday, May 24, with an .800 OPS. However, he has no home runs and a .377 batting average on balls in play.

Fantasy Tip: Prado's high BABIP means his average will surely come down over the course of the season, but the veteran third baseman is a career .293 hitter. There's almost no power to speak of, but if you need help in the average department, he's your guy. He's also tremendously valuable as an underrated player in on-base percentage leagues.
