Marlins manager Don Mattingly relayed Tuesday that Prado (hamstring) has been taking part in fielding, running and hitting drills and could return from the the 10-day disabled list prior to the All-Star break, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. "Martin has been a surprise that he's doing this well this fast," Mattingly said. "I'll say it like that. He's doing really well." Prado has been sidelined since May 25 with a left hamstring strain. Given that Prado's start to the season was delayed by another lower-body injury, the Marlins aren't inclined to rush him back, but the veteran's steady progress in his recovery to date offers hope that he might be back within a few weeks. He'll likely continue to perform a full range of baseball activities for at least a couple more days before the Marlins map out a minor-league rehab assignment. If the Marlins are satisfied with how Prado performs on the farm, he could unseat Miguel Rojas as the club's primary third baseman upon returning from the DL.
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.
