4. Martin Prado (1.9 WAR)

This weekend’s hero, Martin Prado, has posted impressive numbers in 2015. I wrote in today’s Morning Catch that Prado is a keeper, and for many reasons.

With his bat, Prado keeps a .275+ average seemingly every year, scattering extra base hits at a high rate. He also poses as a clutch hitter, as displayed this past weekend.

In the field, Prado can play nearly every position. Mainly starting at third base this season, he will likely be seen splitting time with Derek Dietrich at the hot corner next year, if the Marlins can remain healthy.
