Prado went 3-for-3 with a walk in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Mets. The Marlins only managed five hits total on the day, so Prado was essentially alone on the basepaths. The third baseman continues to enjoy an excellent season and is now slashing .322/.373/.415.
Prado is not in the Marlins lineup on Friday as they host the Mets, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports. It looks to be just a regular day off for Prado, who's hitting .308 over his past 10 games. The Marlins third baseman is having a fantastic season for the Marlins hitting in the two hole. On the season, he's hitting .314 with only 42 strikeouts in 357 at-bats. While he's not a flashy offensive player, Prado can help owners in runs and batting average, hitting in front of Christian Yelich, Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna. Miguel Rojas will get the start at third base for the Marlins on Friday.
Prado went 1-for-5 on Monday, but the one was the game-winning solo home run in the 11th inning against the Phillies. Prado has been fantastic this month, hitting .347. The third baseman is now hitting .320 with 26 extra-base hits for the season. He has 32 RBI and 40 runs scored through 344 at-bats for the Marlins.
Prado collected three hits (two doubles) and drove in a pair of RBI in Saturday's win over the Reds. He also drew a walk while going a perfect 3-for-3 at the dish to push his season line up to .323/.366/.412 over 325 at-bats. Those average and on-base numbers both represent career highs as the veteran infielder continues to provide steady production near the top Miami's lineup.
Prado doubled and scored one run while going 2-for-4 in Friday's win over the Reds. The veteran maintains a strong .317/.359/.401 slash line through 80 games this season, chipping in 36 runs and 28 RBI. He's never been much of a power or speed threat but Prado certainly isn't going to hurt you with his steady production.
