Latest Update Miguel Montero drove in 3 runs to help lead the DBacks past the Cubs Sun Jul, 20, 12:13 AM
A good athlete for a catcher, he boasts a very live bat. Also shows solid mobility behind the plate. His home-run potential is major for a backstop. Can hit lefties fairly well.
Flaws: : Makes a lot of mental mistakes behind the dish. Needs to work on anticipating base-stealers (as he's run on too easily), as well as game-calling and handling pitchers.
Montero extend his streak of reaching base safely to 16 straight games with his performance on Saturday and is currently hitting .274 (17-for-62) over that span. The double was his 15th of the season which is one more than he had all of last season.Analyst: Michael Pichan
The Diamondbacks have decided to give Montero an extra day of rest as they head into the All Star break. Tuffy Gosewisch will get the start Sunday against the Giants.Analyst: Howard Bender
Montero has definitely been worked hard this first half and the numbers he's provided make it awfully hard for a manager to sit him. Perhaps Montero sits a few more times before the break just to keep him well-rested, so keep an eye on daily lineups.Analyst: Howard Bender
Montero has caught the last 13-straight games so a day off is definitely in order here. Tufffy Gosewisch will handle the work behind the plate Sunday.Analyst: Howard Bender
