File Miguel Montero's name away for 2015


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/23/2014) Carlos Corporan, Andrew Susac, Roberto Perez, Curt Casali, David Ross. This is not exactly a who's-who of Fantasy catchers, but they are just some of the ones who have scored more runs than Miguel Montero has since July 1. Thanks to both a lack of opportunities and a severe reduction in power, Montero has scored all of nine runs over the course of his last 57 games played.

Though the Diamondbacks' catcher has done little to help owners of late, his sluggish performance could actually work to your benefit on draft day next season. There have been some positives to Montero's season, which I reviewed in detail in a recent Fantasy Baseball Today blog post, but those could be forgotten by many owners five or six months from now (if not already).

Montero still has the potential to be a good power and run producer, particularly for a catcher, and while you probably don't need to protect him in keeper leagues, he could be an inexpensive pickup in next season's drafts and auctions. As you assemble a list of potential sleepers to target in 2015, be sure to keep Montero's name handy.
