Prado (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. As expected, Prado hits the DL after suffering a left hamstring strain Friday night. A return timetable is up in the air, but manager Don Mattingly suggested it could be an extended absence, saying "it's not going to be a quick one." JT Riddle was recalled in a corresponding move and is starting at shortstop Saturday with Miguel Rojas shifted to third.
Manager Don Mattingly suggested after Friday's game that Prado (hamstring) will go on the disabled list, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. "Obviously it's not going to be a quick one," Mattingly said. A 3-for-4 night against Max Scherzer went south in a hurry, as Prado hurt his left hamstring and is now facing another DL stint. Prado opened the season on the disabled list with a knee injury after missing a large portion of last year with a right hamstring issue. Brian Anderson figures to move in from the outfield to cover third base in Prado's absence.
Prado left Friday's game with a left hamstring injury, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. At the time of the injury, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald noted that it did "not look good" and that Prado had to be helped down the dugout steps. A right hamstring injury cost Prado a sizable chunk of last season, and he missed the start of this season with a knee injury. Prado went 3-for-4 prior to exiting, with all three hits coming against Max Scherzer.
Prado is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mets, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. The veteran has struggled mightily at the plate so far this season, hitting just .159/.213/.170. Brian Anderson will move in to third base Wednesday, with J.B. Shuck starting in right field.
Prado is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. The veteran is hitting just .135/.158/.162 through his first nine games this season. Brian Anderson will move in to third base Tuesday, with Cameron Maybin starting in right field.
