I think the 10-12 may be a little light for what kind of extension Prado could be looking for. With being only a season away from his first big contract he could ask for and reasonably expect upwards of the 15M+ range putting him on the level of Wright and Beltre. He would be the hottest 3b on the market next season and his agent has to know that. They have AZ by the short hairs in this situation being they either pay up or he walks and gets paid at seasons end. Either way its a win win for him with all of the risk on the teams side.
