Mariners demote Jesus Montero to Triple-A
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(9/2/15) The Mariners sent first baseman Jesus Montero down to Triple-A on Wednesday, reports The News Tribune. Montero is hitting .200 with two home runs and nine RBI in 75 at-bats.
Mariners' Logan Morrison out of lineup for third straight day
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(8/1/15) Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison isn't in the starting lineup for Saturday's game, the third straight start he's missed.
Morrison suffered a thumb injury in Wednesday's game and hasn't played since.
Jesus Montero starts at first base for the second straight game and fourth time this season.
Manager: Mariners C Jesus Montero will play extensively
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/31/15) Mariners just-promoted catcher Jesus Montero will be receiving plenty of playing time as the team seeks to evaluate him.
"My hope is to play him as much as possible," Lloyd McClendon told ESPN. "We need to find out about him and see what he's got."
He didn't have much in his previous stints with Seattle after a strong rookie season in 2012. He has since managed just 28 hits in 128 at-bats and spent nearly all of his time in the minors.
Mariners recall Jesus Montero from Triple-A
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/31/15) The Mariners have recalled young slugger Jesus Montero from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday. Montero spent five games with the Mariners earlier this season, collecting three hits in 10 at-bats.
While with Tacoma, Montero has posted a very fine .346/.388/.551 slash line with 16 home runs and 75 RBI.
Montero will be in the starting lineup for the Mariners' game against the Twins on Friday. He is batting seventh and playing first base for manager Lloyd McClendon.
Mariners' Jesus Montero optioned after 2-for-2 game Sunday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/19/15) Mariners DH Jesus Montero had a productive game Sunday against the Yankees, going 2 for 2 with one run and one walk in a 2-1 loss. Unfortunately, Sunday's performance could not keep him from being optioned to Triple-A Tacoma after Sunday's game.
Montero hit .300 (3 for 10) with one RBI, one run, three walks and one strikeout in five games with Seattle.
|2014 summary: When the most notable thing that happened to him was a meltdown over an ice cream sandwich (look it up), it's fair to say 2014 wasn't a good year for Jesus Montero, the former elite prospect who has made anything but an elite impact in three years since coming over from the Yankees. Of course, while he got only 17 at-bats in the majors, he did have a rebound of sorts at Triple-A Tacoma, batting .286 with 16 homers in 364 at-bats.|
Playing time status: Montero was rehabbing an oblique injury when he got in the altercation that led to his suspension for the final month of the season, but he doesn't have any specific health concerns. The bigger issue is where he fits in the lineup long-term. With his catching days behind him, first base and DH are Montero's only two options, and at least to begin the year, those positions are occupied by Logan Morrison and Nelson Cruz. Of course, neither has been a model of health over his career.
2015 outlook: When Montero reported to spring training last year 40 pounds overweight, he appeared to be a lost cause -- a supreme talent who just didn't want it badly enough -- but the way general manager Jack Zduriencik has raved about the work he's put in this offseason, it's possible the ice cream sandwich incident triggered something in him. That's maybe a pie-in-the-sky outlook, but it's reason enough to consider Montero a sleeper of sorts in AL-only leagues.
