Latest Update Miguel Montero is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Sunday. Sun Aug, 31, 12:48 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.
With southpaw Jorge De La Rosa on the mound for the Rockies, Kirk Gibson will employ s more righty-heavy lineup. That gives Montero a day off and puts Tuffy Gosewisch behind the dish for Sunday's action.Analyst: Howard Bender
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
