MONTERO COMING SOON; OTHER MINOR-LEAGUERS MOVING
by Mike D.
John Nalbone of NJ.com says that Jesus Montero is expected to join the Yankees major league squad “in the very near future.” Now that Manny Banuelos has been promoted to Scranton-Wilkes Barres, other top prospects, Austin Romine, and Dellin Betances are expected to join the Triple-A team soon. This is according to sources close to the organization.
Montero will be a welcome addition to the ballclub, when he does get promoted, as he has hit .307 AVG / .361 OBP / .557 SLG against left-handed pitchers. I can see Montero getting a good amount of time in the majors as the designated hitter against lefties.
