Prado was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left quad strain Monday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Prado left the first game of Monday's doubleheader with a quad strain, which has evidently already been deemed bad enough for him to head to the disabled list. Prado isn't expected to need a lengthy stay on the DL, but the Marlins will want to bring in someone to take his place on the roster, possibly even before the start of the day's second game.
Prado exited the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Braves with a left quad strain. Prado got through two innings in the field and had a flyout at the plate before leaving the game. It's not clear at what point he injured his quad. Miguel Rojas entered the game as the Marlins' new third baseman. Prado is considered day-to-day and is unlikely to appear in the evening game.
Prado is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Cardinals, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Prado has started seven of the team's last eight games at the hot corner, slashing just .185/.185/.222 over that stretch. Miguel Rojas will cover third base in his stead, with JT Riddle drawing a start at shortstop.
Prado went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Sunday in the win over Washington. Prado has recorded multi-hit performances in back-to-back games, driving in three runs over the weekend. The 34-year-old third baseman hasn't shown much power late in his career, as he sits with nine extra-base hits and 13 RBI over 41 games this season. He's hit just three home runs over the last two seasons (78 games), though he's missed some time due to injury.
Prado is out of the lineup Sunday against the Phillies, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. Prado will get an early start on the All-Star break as the Phillies and Marlins wrap up their first halves with a day game. The veteran third baseman, who has gone 10-for-30 (.333) with a home run and six RBI in eight appearances since returning from the 10-day disabled list earlier this month, will give way to Miguel Rojas.
