D-backs, Martin Prado agree on four-year deal
Arizona Sports 620's John Gambadoro has reported the deal is worth $40 million. Prado earned $4.75 million last season.
The new deal allows the sides to avoid an arbitration hearing.
Prado spent the first seven years of his big league career with the Braves. The former National League All-Star hit .301 with 10 home runs and 70 RBI while belting 42 doubles for Atlanta last season.
In his career, Prado has batting average of .295 with 52 home runs and 286 RBI.
Prado was acquired from Atlanta last week along with pitcher Randall Delgado and minor leaguers Zeke Spruill, Nick Ahmed and Brandon Drury in the trade that sent outfielder Justin Upton and third baseman Chris Johnson to the Braves.
