Latest Update Martin Prado went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in the Yankees loss to the Astros on Tuesday. Tue Aug, 19, 11:52 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 outfield or infield.
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.
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.

After a slow start with his new team where he had just one hit over his first three games (8 AB) he is his hitting .375 (3-for-8) with his first two extra-base hits and RBI as a Yankee. If Prado can do what he did against David Price then the future should be bright as he will also have plenty of games in hitter friendly parks going forward. Analyst: Michael Pichan
Prado was just acquired by the Yankees last Thursday, but if they fall completely out of contention by the end of the month, it is possible that they could move him. Analyst: David Kerr
