Prado slammed his fifth home run of the season Friday in a loss to the Cardinals.
After hitting three long balls over his first 95 games this season, Prado has gone deep in back-to-back ballgames. The power surge is certainly an encouraging sign for the veteran infielder who now owns a steady .327/.378/.436 triple slash through 385 at-bats. In addition to the five homers, he's piled up 23 doubles and a pair of triples on the year.

Prado went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.
The rare long ball from Prado -- just his fourth in 96 games this year -- ruined Michael Wacha's day, but wasn't quite enough to turn the tide. He's been raking in July -- .364 with a couple homers and 11 RBI -- and yet Prado's still there for the plucking on a whole lot of waiver wires.

Prado is not in the Marlins lineup on Friday as they host the Mets, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.
It looks to be just a regular day off for Prado, who's hitting .308 over his past 10 games. The Marlins third baseman is having a fantastic season for the Marlins hitting in the two hole. On the season, he's hitting .314 with only 42 strikeouts in 357 at-bats. While he's not a flashy offensive player, Prado can help owners in runs and batting average, hitting in front of Christian Yelich, Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna. Miguel Rojas will get the start at third base for the Marlins on Friday.
