Latest Update Montero is not in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Wednesday. Wed Aug, 27, 04:48 PM
A good athlete for a catcher, he boasts a very live bat. Also shows solid mobility behind the plate. His home-run prowess is good for a backstop. Can hit lefties fairly well.
Flaws: : Makes a lot of mental mistakes behind the dish. Doesn't anticipate base-stealers well enough (as he's run on too easily), and his game-calling skills are only average.
The Diamondbacks will stack some right-handed bats in their lineup with Clayton Kershaw on the mound for the Dodgers. Tuffy Gosewisch will handle the work behind the dish Wednesday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Montero is quietly having himself a solid rebound year with a .260 average, 13 home runs and 65 RBI. He's still on the downward slope of his career and if he's behind the dish for Arizona again in 2015, back-up Tuffy Gosewisch could see even more action, but for the sake of this year, just rise it out with him and take the steady production.Analyst: Howard Bender
Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson has stated that Montero will get more days off as the season winds down. Montero is going through a tough stretch where he is just 3 for 17(.176) over his past five starts.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Montero had a big night on Friday, driving a first run homer over the right field fence at home, and also walking three times. His reward for the big night? A day off from behind the plate.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
