The Mariners look like they got a gem. Jesus Montero was picked as the sixth best prospect in all of baseball by MLB.com. The guy can rake and he’s major league ready, the question is, will he be a good catcher. He got off to a rough start in 2011 but bounced back strong and even had a really nice stint with the Yankees.
Mobility behind the plate is an issue and while he has a solid arm, he doesn’t always move well so it’ll be interesting to see how much base runners attempt to steal on him. Of course if he hits like he should, then people won’t be caring too much about his defense.
