Prado showing form which made him All-Star
WASHINGTON -- Through 50 games, Martin Prado's batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage marks were all better than they were during his standout 2010 All-Star season. But the versatile Braves veteran feels like things are a little different than they were two years ago.

"In 2010, I was so locked in on every at-bat, and knew what the pitcher was going to do against me," Prado said. "I can't do that right now. That's the difference."

Still, one year after enduring a disappointing injury-plagued season, Prado seems to be the same dependable offensive threat he was two years ago. Through the first 50 games he had played entering Saturday, he had hit .332, with three home runs, a .408 on-base percentage, and a .495 slugging percentage.

Through his first 50 games in 2010, Prado was hitting .325, with four home runs, a .371 on-base percentage, and a .453 slugging percentage.

"I'm just hoping I can keep this concentration all year," Prado said. "That's all I'm asking."
