Prado, 35, had been out of action since the middle of June due to a right hamstring strain. He is batting .237 with one home run and 12 RBIs in 52 games after grounding out as a pinch hitter Thursday against the San Diego Padres.

Riddle, 27, is batting .189 with six home runs and 12 RBIs over 51 games with the Marlins this season. He saw most of his action in center field but did play 12 games at shortstop. Riddle is out because of a forearm strain.
