This week will mark Prado’s return to Phoenix since his trade from the D’backs last July. He just come off a month-long stint on the disabled list because of a shoulder sprain. In 66 games, Prado is batting .278 with a .318 on-base percentage, four home runs and 25 RBI’s. He will play second base with All-Star Dee Gordon on the shelf because of a thumb injury. While in Atlanta, Prado hit D’back pitching extremely well with a .366 average in 101 at-bats. With the Marlins out of realistic contention, don’t be surprised if he is on the move again by the time July 31st rolls around.
