Prats was born in Capdepera, Majorca. After emerging through hometown RCD Mallorca's youth system (appearing in one La Liga match in the 1991–92 season, a 1–2 home loss against Athletic Bilbao) and playing one year with Celta de Vigo, he finally settled at Seville's Real Betis, where he remained nine years. Ironically, in 1999–2000, as the Andalusians were relegated from the top flight, he scored against Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid through free kicks, in respectively a 2–1 win and 1–2 loss.
In 2005–06, Prats returned to Mallorca for a further two campaigns, before the emergence of Miguel Ángel Moyà forced a move to second division club Hércules CF where he was scarcely used, retiring in March 2008 following recurrent back problems.
