Latest Update Yankees place INF/OF Martin Prado on the 60-day disabled list Tue Sep, 16, 12:00 PM
Shows a very good eye and patience at the plate, helping him hit for a high average with gap power. A good all-round run-producer, he also brings a solid glove anywhere he plays--in the infield or outfield.
Flaws: : Doesn't have top-tier range and speed, limiting him somewhat in the field and on the bases. His lack of speed is what's missing from his table-setting arsenal. Also lacks big home-run power.
And there's the official roster move to end Prado's season. Stephen Drew will be the Yankees regular second baseman the rest of the way and they'll now be able to add someone else to the 40-man roster.Analyst: Howard Bender
Likely? How about probably. How about he's just done? With two weeks remaining in the regular season, an emergency appendectomy is going to put Prado on the shelf for at least that long. Maybe if they Yankees somehow squeeze into the playoffs, he stands a chance to return, but even that is doubtful. He can be dropped in all formats.Analyst: Howard Bender
Prado has certainly enjoyed the move to Yankees stadium has he now has hit seven home runs in 36 games after hitting just five in 106 games for the Diamondbacks. Prado has reached double-digit home runs for the sixth straight season and his average is sitting at a near career average of .280. The Yankees could certainly do much worse than Prado patrolling the infield whether it be at third base or second base going forward.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
It inched the Yankees closer before Chris Young hit a walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth. Prado has been dealing with a hamstring issue recently.Analyst: David Kerr
