Montero to be Called up to Yankees Soon?

According to the Trenton Times, Yankees prospect Jesus Montero could be promoted “in the very near future.”

Montero has posted a somewhat disappointing .283/.342/.429 batting line in 84 games this season at the Triple-A level, but the Yankees love his power potential and apparently feel that he’s nearly ready to contribute to the major league lineup. The 21-year-old would likely split time between DH and catcher. He slugged 21 homers in the minors last year and has 10 big flies this season.

Let's Get #28 in 2012. go Yankees!

  • Joe Monte

    Not gonna happen. Russell Martin is their full-time catcher this year and they don't have room for another DH. You'll see him September 1 when they can expand the roster.

  • Henry

    Sorry Joe but he will be up soon. Martin is an awful hitter and the yankees can't carry him. He looks very tired and they are stealing a lot of bases on him. He will remain the starter but with Montero he should get more time off and I for one think he will be better with the rest.

  • Henry

    You just can't ignor that bat. He is not challenged enough at AAA and it has affected him. He will be good hitting down in the batting order.

    Now receiving plenty of print speculation of an early call up. If this move and related moves help the Yankees reach their goal of winning a championship this season, I'll borrow a line from Star Trek's Captain Picard and say, "Make it so."
