Martin Prado -.095

For some reason, Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly has decided to let 34-year-old Martin Prado bat leadoff. Prado did bat leadoff in every Marlins game throughout the Braves series.

Prado struck out to open Friday’s game (-.022). He flew out to left field to end the third (-.012). He singled into right field with one out in the sixth (+.037), and scored on J.T. Realmuto’s triple. Prado later drew a one-out walk in the eighth (+.014).

On Saturday, Prado grounded out to lead the game off (-.022). He flew out to open the third inning (-.022). With one out in the fifth, he flew out again (-.017). In the eighth, he led off the inning by flying out (-.007).

On Sunday, Prado grounded out to lead the game off (-.022). He struck out for the second out of the third (-.018). His next time up, the Marlins had scored six runs. Prado singled to the pitcher (+.004). He then grounded out  for the second out of the sixth (-.002), flew out to lead off the eighth (-.004), and grounded out with a runner on base to end the ninth (-.001). So in total, Prado was two-for-13 with a walk through the series.

Grade: D
