Prado underwent a knee scope clean up and could return after 3-5 weeks of recovery, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. Prado's surgery required only an arthroscopic solution, though there remains a high degree of variability as to his overall recovery time. The 33-year-old was forced to undergo the operation after seeing little improvement since being placed on the DL earlier this month, but it would appear he could presumably get back on the field sometime in September. Nonetheless, fantasy owners should look elsewhere for replacement options.
Prado will undergo knee surgery, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports. This probably will end the 33-year-old's season, though Heyman did not directly address that notion in his report. Anyone holding on to Prado in single-year fantasy leagues can move on. The Marlins will continue to fill the gap with a timeshare at third base that includes Derek Dietrich, Mike Aviles and Miguel Rojas.
Prado (knee) has not been making much progress since landing on the DL on July 17, and could require surgery in the near future, Craig Davis of the Sun Sentinel reports. Prado suffered the right knee sprain during a game against the Phillies, and it hasn't improved near the rate at which the third baseman would've hoped. Manager Don Mattingly stated that the club could make a decision as soon as Friday, prior to the game against Cincinnati. In his place, Derek Dietrich continues to get a majority of the playing time at third base.
Prado exited Monday's game against the Phillies after four innings, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. Prado was 0-for-2 with a strikeout before being replaced by Derek Dietrich at third base prior to the top of the fifth inning. The reason for his removal is currently unclear.
Prado will lead off and play third base Sunday against the Dodgers, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. It will likely just be a one-time stay at the top of the lineup for Prado with Dee Gordon resting as the Dodgers bring a lefty (Rich Hill) to the mound for a second straight day. Even so, Prado could make for an intriguing low-cost DFS option while he sets the table for the likes of Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna.
