Marlins | Martin Prado returns to two-hole

Wed, 27 May 2015 08:44:27 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado is batting second against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Since a nine-game, 6-for-38 slump, Prado ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is sporting a respectable nine game hitting streak with five RBI. He has batted cleanup the past seven games, and the switch to the two hole stands to help pad his runs column while yielding fewer RBI opportunities. Facing Gerrit Cole Wednesday isn't the best spot to utilize him in FantasyScore contests, though.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna, Martin Prado flop in lineup

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:29:10 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is hitting second in the batting order against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Chase Anderson Wednesday, May 20, while 3B Martin Prado moves from the two-hole to cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .182 (4-for-22) with one RBI since May 12, and Prado ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting .257 (19-for-74) with a homer and six RBI in May. The lineup shift was done with the intent of getting Miami's lackluster offense going. It could work tonight against Anderson, who has pitched very well this year, but until we see results, it's probably best to consider both Ozuna and Prado mediocre plays.

Marlins | Martin Prado resting

Sun, 03 May 2015 08:26:01 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado will rest Sunday, May 3, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Marlins SS Reid Brignac will start at third base and hit sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Brignac ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will have some potential as a GPP play on FantasyScore as he'll take on a right-handed pitcher in Phillies SP Severino Gonzalez. Brignac is still only a .232-hitter against righties and doesn't have a hit this season, so owners could do better, even at the minimum price.

Marlins | Martin Prado owns Cole Hamels

Sat, 02 May 2015 18:44:45 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado hit a three-run home run against Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels Saturday, May 2, and finished the game 2-fo-3 with a double, a walk, a run scored and four RBIs. He is now hitting .315 with nine RBIs in 67 at-bats against Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Prado ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has been solid for the Marlins this season, and while he is merely a matchup play at FantasyScore, make sure to start him whenever he faces Hamels.

Marlins | Martin Prado riding pine

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 06:26:12 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado is not in the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, April 12. OF/3B Don Kelly is starting at the hot corner and batting sixth Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Prado in daily contests Sunday. He has struggled at the dish thus far with a .167 batting average (3-for-18). Kelly ($1,600, 3.2/% of cap) is a nice upside play for FantasyScore contests Sunday, as opposing pitcher Nathan Karns was beat around for six earned runs through 5 2/3 innings in his season debut. Still, starting Kelly isn't without risk.
