The Colorado Rockies are thinking Atlanta Braves infielder Martin Prado would make a nice starting second baseman and have contacted the folks in Georgia to ask about his availability, a major-league source tells the Denver Post.
“The Rockies scouted Prado extensively last season,” the paper reports. There has been no discussion of actual player names that the Rockies would be willing to give up for Prado, but “Atlanta is seeking outfield help,” the Post reports.
The 28-year-oldl Prado will likely make about $ 4.5 million next season after he goes through arbitration, the Post reports. This past season, Prado batted .260 with 13 home runs and 57 RBIs. Over six seasons, Prado’s career batting average is .293.
