Latest Update Prado homers and doubles in Yankees win Tue Aug, 26, 12:26 AM
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.
Prado has been hitting the ball very well of late, and is now 9-for-21 (.428 BA) with six extra-base hits, six RBI and five runs scored over his last five games. The Yankees could not have asked for more than what they have received from Prado up to this point at the plate, not to mention his versatility he brings to the defense. Until he cools off re he remains a must-start outside of the shallowest of formats while enjoying a fresh start with the Yankees. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Prado has now hit safely in five of his last six games and is batting .391 (9-for-23) with two home runs, seven RBI and five runs scored over that span. He's also being heavily praised fro his leadership in the clubhouse. With steady at-bats at second base, Prado could be a decent add for the tail-end of the season.Analyst: Howard Bender
After a five-game stretch in which he was 1-for-15, Prado has turned things around and, not only has he hit safely in his lat three, but he's actually batting .545 (6-for-11) with a home run, four RBI and three runs scored. Between starts at second base and right field, Prado should continue to see regular at-bats moving forward. He's not one for a whole lot of power, but he should be able to help you out with batting average and maybe some runs scored.Analyst: Howard Bender
Since joining the Yankees, Prado is slashing a mere .174/.224/.326, but has managed to now hit two home runs in 14 games. Through 106 games with the Diamondbacks this season, Prado had only five home runs (80.6 AB/HR), so there is a good chance he could surpass that total with only six weeks left in the season, especially taking into consideration he now gets to hit in one of the most hitter-friendly ballparks in all of baseball.
