MARTIN PRADO RUMORS & GOSSIP

Prado removed from Colorado game with hand injury

DENVER -- Arizona third baseman Martin Prado was taken out of the game in the sixth inning Friday after hurting his left hand tagging out a runner on a steal attempt. Prado stuck his glove down with Colorado's Charlie Blackmon sliding into the bag, and quickly jumped back in pain after applying the tag. Prado held his left wrist as trainers came out of the Diamondbacks dugout...

More comfortable Prado looks to start on right foot in 2014

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- With Martin Prado at the plate in the third inning Tuesday in Peoria, Paul Goldschmidt took off from first base to second. Prado knocked a single right through the hole left by the covering second baseman, allowing Goldschmidt to take third base as well. It appeared to be the perfect hit and run, putting Goldschmidt in position to score one batter later. "...

Prado's called-shot homer part of 'heartwarming' story

PHOENIX -- It was a home run, but it was so much more. It was a swing for friendship. For respect. For the bond that unites us all. Martin Prado's two-run home in the first inning of the Diamondbacks'18-inning victory in Philadelphia on Saturday night was a promise fulfilled. As Prado rounded second base at Citizens Bank Park, he pointed to the spot just past the visitors...

NOT THE BALL'S FAULT

Martin Prado stomps baseball into the ground

Your browser does not support iframes. Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Martin Prado stomped on the baseball in frustration after being unable to field a slow roller during Wednesday night's game against the New York Mets. It happened in the first inning as Mets batter Eric Young hit the grounder to third, which was slowed down a bit due to a wet field. Prado had to run...

Prado's position with Braves is unpredictable

Some guys have to look at the lineup every day to see whether they're playing. Atlanta Braves infielder-outfielder Martin Prado has to look at it to see which position he's playing. It could be anywhere except pitcher or catcher. There aren't many weeks like the one he had from Aug. 23 to Aug. 29, when he started at five positions: left field, first base, second base...

Martin Prado comfortable in Braves lineup

Martin Prado is in the perfect place. The guy in front of him is hitting .323 and knows what to do when he reaches first. Michael Bourns 13 steals are tied for second in the NL. And the guy behind him is becoming one of the leagues top run producers. Freddie Freeman has taken over the No. 3 spot in the Braves order, and his 32 RBIs are tied for third in the league. In between...

Prado still adapting to position shuffle

Martin Prado started at third base, left field, third base and left field in the Braves' first four games. He's getting better at moving back and forth from one game to the next, but he doesn't like it. And only now is he willing to admit that worrying about covering each position well defensively took a toll on his offense last season. Prado batted .182 (2 for 11) in...

Prado returns to comfort level with Braves

Martin Prado was out of place. He wasnt comfortable in the field or at the plate. And he certainly wasnt comfortable when he was on the disabled list. That pretty much sums up 2011 for Prado. It was a season of disappointment as he struggled to adjust to a new position, a new spot in the batting order and an injury that cost him more than a month of the season. He wants to leave...

Trading Prado Should Require Overpay

Martin Prado was without a doubt one of the biggest disappointments for the Atlanta Braves in 2011. In 2010 Prado was a rare second baseman who hit like a leftfielder, but in 2011 he was a leftfielder who hit like, well, a second baseman. Missing time with a Staph infection certainly didn’t help and neither did his astoundingly low .266 BABIP (compared to his .315 career average...

Would you trade Delmon Young for Martin Prado if you were the Tigers?

At what price does Prado come at? In a report from Mlive Contributor Ian Casselberry earlier today, he mentioned that the Detroit Tigers were interested in trading for Atlanta Braves super utility player Martin Prado to fill our 2nd base hole. At first I was very excited about the report since Prado is a great player and would defiantly help us at 2nd base and fill in at lead off...
