Marlins sign Martin Prado to 3-year, $40 million extension

he Marlins have agreed to a 3-year, $40 million contract extension with third baseman Martin Prado, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald. Prado was slated to become a free agent after the season.

The signing of Prado represents a small bright spot in an impossibly tough week for the Marlins, who lost ace Jose Fernandez in a boating accident early Sunday. Prado has been one of the club’s leaders since news broke of Fernandez’s death, and was the only player to speak at the team’s first press conference Sunday afternoon.

On the field, Prado has performed well in his second season with the Marlins, posting a .305/.360/.415 line with seven home runs in 149 games. The 32-year old will now stay with the Marlins through the end of his age-35 season in 2019.
