Over the last 28 games (according to B-R.com) Martin Prado is hitting .351/.414/.558 including a 4-for-4 game on Wednesday. I'm not sure it's accurate to say that the guys that Towers got are doing well "except for Martin Prado".

He has the track record to show that he's a fairly consistent hitter, he's "only" 29 years old, this was his first season playing for a new organization, and his BABIP is a bit low considering his typical BABIP numbers.

I'm not sure that he didn't just have a bad first half while adjusting to his new team.

yeah I mean I don't actually think Prado is a bad return, just having a lousy season, overall. Had to say something! But basically I'm with you
