Prado remains on the bench Tuesday against the Rays, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports. Prado sits for the second game in a row, with Brian Anderson starting at third base. Anderson may be forced to make the majority of his starts at third going forward (at Prado's expense) due to the return of Garrett Cooper and the debut of Harold Ramirez.
Prado will be on the bench Saturday against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Prado is hitting just .233/.244/.279 in his last 12 games. Brian Anderson moves in to third base, with Garrett Cooper getting the call in right field.
Prado is not starting Wednesday against the Cubs, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Prado sits after starting seven of the last eight games. Neil Walker starts at first base, with Brian Anderson at third.
Prado is not starting Saturday against the Braves, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Prado is hitting just .194 over his last 10 games. Jon Berti gets the call at third base.
Prado went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 6-2 loss to the Indians on Wednesday. The 35-year-old possesses a sparkling .320 batting average while being a part-time player early this season, but he hasn't contributed much in the other offensive categories. The bomb Wednesday was his first homer of the year, and he also has just five RBI and five runs in 50 at-bats. Last season, Prado had one home run in 197 at-bats, so owners shouldn't expect a sudden power surge from Prado after Wednesday's homer.
