Special to MLB.com

MIAMI -- Marlins manager Don Mattingly said that it likely will be at least a month before third baseman Martin Prado is cleared to return to normal baseball activities.

Prado landed on the 10-day disabled list on Saturday with a left hamstring strain that he sustained running to first base during Friday's 9-5 loss to the Nationals at Marlins Park. It's the 34-year-old Prado's second visit to the DL with hamstring issues this season.

"We know we're at least 30 days-plus getting ready again," Mattingly said on Sunday. "We're a ways out. Timetables are really not part of the equation right now. We know it's a hamstring strain. I think at some point if it's not healing or not feeling better, then we'd get some testing done."

Other injury updates
• Rule 5 Draft pick Brett Graves surrendered five runs over four innings in a start on Sunday for Double-A Jacksonville. The right-hander is on the 60-day DL with a left oblique strain.

• Chris O'Grady, on the 10-day DL with a left shoulder sprain, is continuing with his throwing progression.
