Martin Prado is activated from DL, starts at 3B Monday night

The Marlins activated third baseman Martin Prado from the disabled list on Monday and inserted him into the starting lineup right away. Prado will man his usual third base and will bat second in the order.

Fantasy Impact

Martin Prado is a solid-but-unspectacular fantasy option at third base, as he offers a solid batting average but not much in the speed or power categories. His return is nonetheless a welcome sight for owners in NL-only and deeper leagues who could use some depth.

Martin Prado signs a three year extension with the Miami Marlins

Miami Marlins third baseman Martin Prado signed a 3 year, $40 million extension with the Marlins on Tuesday, as reported by Clark Spencer.

Fantasy Impact

With the loss of Jose Fernandez not even three days old, the Marlins front office knew they could not risk going into next season without Prado's leadership. He's hitting .305/.360/.415 this season and has put up back-to-back 3+ WAR seasons.

Martin Prado goes 0-for-5 on Thursday

Martin Prado went 0-for-5 in the Marlins' 5-2 loss to the Royals on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Prado is having a solid season with an overall slash line of .316/.369/.428 to go along with seven home runs, 27 doubles, 59 RBI, 59 runs scored, 40 walks and one steal. Prado has been consistent all year for the Marlins and you know what you're going to get out of Prado at third base.

Martin Prado drives in two runs on Thursday in Marlins loss

Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with two RBI and one run scored in the Marlins 5-4 loss to the Marlins on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Prado raised his slash line to .327/.380/.446 to go along with seven home runs, 57 RBI and 58 runs scored on the season. He ranks third in the National League with the .327 batting average and has been on a hot streak over the past week with a seven game hitting streak dating back to August 12. Prado has been consistent all year for the Marlins and provides fantasy value in the batting average and runs scored department.

Martin Prado collects two hits on Thursday

Martin Prado went 2-for-5 with one run scored in the Marlins' 9-3 victory over the Phillies on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

On the season, Prado sports a solid slash line of .314/.364/.409 to go along with three home runs, 21 doubles, 32 RBI, and 41 runs scored. He's been a consistent hitter for the Marlins at third base but for fantasy purposes doesn't add much value beyond batting average.
