MARTIN PRADO RUMORS & GOSSIP

D-backs roar back to beat Phillies in 10

PHILADELPHIA -- Martin Prado doubled, homered and drove in five runs, including a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the 10th inning, to lift the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 10-6 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night. Nick Evans' three-run homer capped Arizona's four-run 10th inning. Evan Marshall (3-2) pitched a scoreless ninth to earn the victory. Marlon Byrd...

D-Backs more interested in trading Hill than Prado

The Diamondbacks are looking to trade Aaron Hill but are barely listening on Martin Prado, according to league sources. Hill has slipped from two years ago, when he had a career year, and is batting .251 with eight homers and 49 RBI. Prado's numbers are comparable (four homers, 37 RBI, .274), but Arizona views him as a key asset because of his leadership abilities and versatility...

WATCH: Martin Prado smacks home run for his 1000th career hit

Your browser does not support iframes.   Martin Prado decided that the best way to celebrate his 1000th career hit was to go yard off of the Dodgers in the 9th inning. Prado is just the 26th Venezuelan born player to reach 1000 hits, and at 30 years old, it isn’t hard to envision Prado reaching the 2000 hits milestone by the end of his career. Home runs have come scarcely for...

Martin Prado Dispenses “Dirt Baths” In New Diamondbacks Commercial

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 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...
