Martín Manuel Prado (born October 27, 1983 in Maracay, Venezuela) is a professional baseball player who currently plays for the Atlanta Braves.

Prado made his major league debut on April 23, 2006, going 1 for 2 and logging a triple. He was later sent down to the AAA Richmond Braves, but was called back up to the majors later in the season. He hit his first career home run on September 14, 2006, against Jamie Moyer of the Philadelphia Phillies.

Prado was called up for the 2007 season on May 20 and was sent down on June 2. He was called up again on August 7. He was sent down on August 22 to make room for the recently activated Edgar Rentería, but Renteria left with an injury in his first at bat since being injured that sent him to the disabled list again so Prado was called up again a day later. Subsequently, Prado was sent down again the next day. He was called up to stay on September 4.
