Latest Update Miguel Montero is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Wednesday. Wed Jul, 30, 10:01 AM
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 the early start Wednesday after a night game, Montero will take a seat and rest. Tuffy Gosewisch will get the nod behind the plate.Analyst: Howard Bender
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
