Cubs C Miguel Montero breaks loose with two-homer game

by Marty Gitlin |
(4/18/15) Cubs catcher Miguel Montero had not been making a case early this season for daily duty. That is, until Saturday.

Montero, who has only been a semi-regular this season, slammed his first two home runs of the year in a victory over San Diego. He launched one off starter Tyson Ross in the sixth and another the following inning off Chris Rearick to raise his average from .105 to .174.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon expressed his appreciation for Montero following the game - and not just for what he did on the field against the Padres.

"Miggy is always, always into the game, always," Maddon told ESPN. "I give him credit. He's a (31 year old), but this guy loves to play baseball. don't be misconceived, some guys arent always like that even if they are in the major leagues and have been baseball players. Not everyboy likes to play the game like he does. He has a true passion for it and I really appreciate that."

His first blast would have been the game-winner had the Padres not scored four in the ninth.

Cubs' Miguel Montero batting cleanup Saturday

by R.J. White |
(4/11/15) Cubs catcher Miguel Montero has been moved to the cleanup spot in Saturday's lineup against the Rockies.

Montero has seen just one start this season and didn't play at all Friday. After batting sixth while making his first appearance in the starting lineup Wednesday, he's been bumped up for Saturday's game. Montero is 0 for 4 with one RBI this season.

The Cubs are underdogs (-102) against the Rockies Saturday.

Cubs may keep Miguel Montero, David Ross and Welington Castillo

by Shawn Krest |
(3/23/15) Cubs general manager Theo Epstein is considering breaking camp with three catchers on the roster. 

Epstein said that the team is "leaning toward" keeping Miguel Montero, David Ross and Welington Castillo, per ESPN's Jesse Rogers. He added that manager Joe Maddon is "pounding the table for three catchers." 

Hammel racks up nine Ks in strong start

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/22/15) Cubs starter Jason Hammel was dominant Sunday against the Padres, striking out nine batters in five innings of work in what would be an eventual 6-1 win for the Padres.

Hammel allowed just three hits and no runs to lower his spring ERA to 3.86, crediting his work with catcher Miguel Montero for part of his success. 

"Montero and I are starting to develop a little bit of a rhythm so that's nice," Hammel told

Hammel said his goal for this season is to throw 200 innings, something he has yet to do in his career. 

"That's always my main goal," he said. "If you pitch 200 innings, as you can see with the big dogs in the league, everything else falls in line. You can't pitch 200 innings with a 5.00 era. That's a No. 1 goal."

Miguel Montero trying to become workhorse with Cubs in 2015

by Brandon Wise |
(2/28/15) New Cubs catcher Miguel Montero played the third most games behind the plate of all catchers in 2014 and he's not asking for any extra time off heading into 2015, reports

"I think the results of how you're playing as a team will dictate how you feel," Montero said. "You go to the playoffs, you're never tired. Your adrenaline goes so fast. You don't have time to think about, 'Oh, I've been catching 140 games.' Your mindset is, 'Let's go.'"

Manager Joe Maddon loves what he's seen from Montero, but knows expecting 162 games out of him is just too much.

"It won't be 162," Maddon said, "but we'll talk and try to figure out a nice little program to keep him on top of his game and provide that opportunity for other guys to play, too."
