RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Prado’s overall 2014 production was nearly identical to his 2013 production, and that is not a good thing. He was traded to the Yankees over the summer and his bat was revived with New York, as he went on to hit .316/.336/.541 in the 137 plate appearances he had before his season ended after an emergency appendectomy. One thing that helped his 2014 numbers was he mashed lefties at a .366/.398/.580 clip, but that is an outlier for him. One thing to watch for is that his numbers against righties have declined for three consecutive seasons. Prado is a non-sexy pick for the endgame as he is a decent bet for 10 homers, a .280 average, and he qualifies at both second and third base on draft day. However, the move to Marlins Park will only hurt his power numbers, so the only upside in his selection is what happens with his BABIP.

2014

Prado ended up having a nice season in Arizona following the trade that sent Justin Upton to Atlanta. He had a rough first half, but really came on late in the season, hitting .374 in August. There is talk of a positional change for Prado, possibly to make room for Matt Davidson at third, but his multiple position eligibility should remain, making him very valuable. Regardless of how the D-Backs decide to make all of the pieces fit, Prado should see an everyday supply of at-bats again in 2014.

2013

After playing in the outfield most of the last two years, Prado was the Braves' top choice to fill the third-base role following Chipper Jones' retirement. When the opportunity to acquire Justin Upton arose, he was deemed expendable as he was included in the blockbuster deal with Arizona and subsequently signed a four-year deal with the D-Backs. Prado figures to serve as the primary third baseman this season, but his bat can play anywhere – he has had an above-.300 batting average three of the last four seasons and shows a good ability to score runs near the top of the lineup. He also added a new facet to his game in 2012, stealing 17 bases. Prado won't provide much power, but his versatility, ability to hit for average and score runs along with the potential for some extra stolen bases make him a great player to own.

2012

Prado's move to the outfield was a failure last season as he hit just .260/.302/.385 with 13 home runs. He did miss time in June after surgery for a staph infection in his leg, which could have impacted his performance the rest of the season. However, his move to the outfield was always risky as even at his 2010 production his bat went from being an asset in the infield to average in the outfield. Luckily, he did play 42 games at third base to still qualify at one infield position in most leagues. There are reasons to think he'll improve in 2012 as he had the same walk rate last year as 2010, reduced his strikeouts and had a low BABIP of .267. Prado was mentioned in trade rumors all winter and he could be moved if the Braves want to upgrade in left field. A trade that would move him back to second base would increase his fantasy value, so watch out for that possibility. In the meantime, he'll begin the season as Atlanta's starting left fielder.

2011

Prado continued to improve at the plate last season as he hit a career-high 15 home runs, made his first All-Star Game and finished seventh in the NL batting race. He's gone from a utility player in 2008, to regular in the lineup in 2009, to hitting in key spots (leadoff, third) in the lineup last year. Prado makes good contact and has surprising power, plus he can play multiple positions in the infield and outfield. He began last season at second base and moved to third base after Chipper Jones' knee injury. The Braves might use him in left field, where his bat will be less of an asset, but he more likely starts at third base for at least the first part of the season until Jones returns from a knee injury. He'll likely be used across the infield in any scenario. He missed the last week of September and the playoffs after suffering a hip pointer and torn oblique muscle, but is expected to be at full strength by the start of spring training. He'll qualify at second base and third base for fantasy owners wherever he ends up playing or batting in the order, and could deliver a big season in his prime at age 27 this season.

2010

Prado showed his breakout 2008 season was no fluke as he hit .307/.358/.464 with 11 home runs. He began the season in a utility role (he'll qualify at third base and first base in many leagues) but took over regular duty at second base for the second half of the season after Kelly Johnson struggled. Prado makes good contact and showed surprising power, and he enters 2010 as Atlanta's everyday second baseman.

2009

At just age 25 in 2009, it may be time to start taking Prado seriously as a possible starter even though he wasn't a highly touted prospect with his bat in the minors. He hit .346/.391/.474 once he moved into a regular role after Aug. 1. He impressed enough that the Braves considered trading Yunel Escobar or Kelly Johnson in the offseason knowing Prado could move into a starting role. He'll have upside even in a reserve role with the oft-injured Chipper Jones at third base.

2008

Prado will try to win a job as a utility infielder with Atlanta next spring. He's got a strong glove and can play second or third base, but doesn't offer much power or plate discipline. His lack of speed makes him a poor option for fantasy purposes.

2007

Late last season there was talk about Prado as a possible starter at second base, but his track record at the plate shows that wouldn't be a wise decision. He hasn't shown an ability to draw a walk and has had minimal power. He does have a good glove, however. He'll likely compete for a utility job with the Braves this spring.

2006

Prado hit .280/.354/.364 after being promoted to Double-A Mississippi last summer. He's seen as a strong fielder at second base, so he could get consideration for a big league job with a strong showing at Triple-A early next season.
