Prado was placed on the 60-day disabled list Tuesday with a right abdominal strain, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. This takes Prado out for the remainder of the season. The veteran third baseman appeared in just 54 games this season due to multiple injuries, hitting .244/.287/.305 with one homer and one stolen base. Injuries have limited Prado to just 91 games over the past two seasons, leaving his future somewhat uncertain.
Prado is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. Miami reinstated Prado from the disabled list prior to Saturday's win, with the 34-year-old checking into the lineup at first base and finishing 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI. With the non-contending Marlins likely motivated to give their younger position players extended looks in the final month of the season, it wouldn't be surprising if Prado was limited to part-time role in September.
Prado (quadriceps) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Saturday. Prado had been out since mid-August with a left quad strain. The veteran is hitting just .244/.288/.301 for the Marlins this season and could struggle for at-bats down the stretch should the team choose to play younger players.
Marlins manager Don Mattingly said over the weekend that Prado (quadriceps) wouldn't be reinstated from the 10-day disabled list until after rosters expand Saturday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Considering that Prado has been sidelined for two weeks with the left quadriceps strain and has yet to resume facing pitching, it's not surprising that he won't be back for any of the Marlins' final three games of August. The veteran infielder is no lock to be among the Marlins' initial wave of activations Saturday, either, as he'll need to complete a full range of baseball activities before the team considers bringing him back. Prado has taken part in fielding drills at both corner-infield spots in recent days, suggesting he has progressed on some level since hitting the shelf.
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.
