Prado has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 hamstring strain and could miss the first month of the season or more, The Miami Herald reports. "I want to make sure that I'm 100 percent and not trying to rush this," Prado said Saturday. "First of all, I just have to get pain-free running. That's our main goal now and after that be strong enough to hold up with a healthy hamstring."

EDGE Analysis

He was injured Wednesday during WBC play, and the 33-year-old will now be forced to miss the early part of the regular season. Derek Dietrich and Miguel Rojas will split time at third base while Prado is on the shelf.

Prado (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Saturday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prado left the World Baseball Classic after suffering the injury, and the medical examination will determine his timetable for recovery. If the veteran has to miss time early in the season, Derek Dietrich and Miguel Rojas could split time at the hot corner. Prado remains an OK bat for deep mixed fantasy leagues, but an extended absence would hurt his already limited ceiling.

Prado has been diagnosed with a strained hamstring and will return to Marlins camp for further testing, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

EDGE Analysis

The club believes Prado's injury is minor, but won't take any chances with the 33-year-old veteran, who was signed to a new, three-year deal in September. He had been playing for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic, but Prado's stint with the national team may be short-lived, depending on the test results. Consider him day-to-day moving forward.

Venezuela manager said Prado pulled his right hamstring in Wednesday's game, Kyle Glaser of Baseball America reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vizquel also announced that Prado was day-to-day, and may not be available for the rest of the round. Based on that it doesn't sound too serious, but he should have a firmer timetable in the near future.

Prado left Wednesday's WBC game with a trainer after pulling up with an apparent hamstring injury, Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prado pulled up and grabbed his hamstring when hustling out a ground ball against Team USA, which is never a particularly good sign. However, there is still uncertainty surrounding the specifics of the injury, so consider him day-to-day until he is further evaluated.

Prado will play for Team Venezuela in the WBC, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He'll be competing with the Padres' Yangervis Solarte for the starting third base job on the squad, but Prado's experience could give him a leg up on a fairly veteran roster. The 33-year-old played in more than 150 games for the first time since 2013 last year while hitting better than .280 for the fifth straight campaign, and the Marlins will once again be counting on his bat to provide consistent contact near the top of their order in 2017.

Prado agreed to a three-year, $40 million contract extension with the Marlins on Tuesday, the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The deal will kick in next season and keep Prado on the Marlins' roster through his age-35 season in 2019. He has posted a .297/.350/.405 slash line over 278 games since joining the Marlins in 2015 and will remain the club's regular third baseman moving forward.

Prado is out of the lineup Saturday against the Braves, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Derek Dietrich will take over at the hot corner as Prado sits for the first time since late July. Prado has put together a fine campaign in his age-32 season, batting .308/.363/.418 with seven homers, 68 runs, 73 RBI and two steals, enough to put him inside the top-20 at third base in terms of earned fantasy value. However, he has slowed down a bit this month with 18 hits (zero home runs) in 76 September at-bats.

Prado went 1-for-4 with a two-RBI double in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran third baseman was the Marlins offense on the night, bringing home Derek Dietrich and Marcell Ozuna with a first-inning single. Prado has hits in three straight and seven of his last nine overall, but is slashing a lackluster .237/.310/.329 in September, his poorest monthly showing in what has been a stellar season.
