Snake bites

• Third baseman Martin Prado was struck by a Zeke Spruill pitch during live batting practice Monday.

The pitch glanced off Prado's left biceps before hitting him on the side of his left hand.

"We'll see how it is tomorrow," Prado said. "It'll probably be tender."

Spruill came over along with Prado in the trade that sent Justin Upton to the Braves.

• The D-backs will have an abbreviated workout Tuesday and be off the field by 10:15 a.m. MST. Gibson said he wanted to give the team a "recovery day" after back-to-back long workouts.

The team is scheduled to take part in a paintball game following practice.

• Last year's No. 1 Draft pick, catcher Stryker Trahan, came over from the Minor League side and got to face McCarthy during live batting practice.

• Prado's new contract calls for him to receive $1 million if he is traded during it. Closer J.J. Putz has a similar clause in his deal.

Prado will also receive a suite on the road.
