Jesus Montero sent down
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Catcher Jesus Montero didn't perform badly with the Mariners, but his latest stint in the bigs was certainly short. He has been demoted to Triple-A Tacoma.

Montero managed four hits in 14 at-bats with a home run in five games. He showed a bit more plate discipline than he has in the past with just two strikeouts.

Jesus Montero hits first homer
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Mariners first baseman Jesus Montero has hit safely in each of his three games since being recalled, and provided some power in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

Montero went 1 for 3 before being replaced for defensive purposes late. He slugged a two-run home run in the second inning to provide the ultimate winning margin in a 6-1 victory.

Montero is 3 for 10 with two strikeouts, one run and two RBI since being recalled.

Jesus Montero trying to learn from mistakes
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Through all the setbacks experienced by Mariners catcher Jesus Montero over the last year, he has soaked in one overriding thought.

"The biggest thing I learned (at Triple-A Tacoma), was how good it is to be in the big leagues," he told the Tacoma News-Tribune. "I've got to respect the game. I've got to do my best ... and help the team to win."

Montero showed promise by batting .260 with 15 home runs and 62 RBI as a rookie with the Mariners in 2012, but flopped miserably a year ago and was demoted to Tacoma, where he suffered a torn meniscus in his knee that sidelined him for seven weeks. Upon his return, he was suspended as part of the Biogenesis scandal.

He then reported to spring training this year 40 pounds overweight, but did hit .270 with eight home runs with the Rainiers to open 2014 and prompt a promotion Thursday. He will serve mostly as a designated hitter against left-handers.

Fantasy Analysis | 1402591942
Jesus Montero could be intriguing option in deep formats
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With the news the Mariners are set to recall Jesus Montero, Fantasy owners are now faced with the question of adding Montero or leaving him on waivers?

Montero's production in the minors this season has been very interesting. He got off to a really hot start in April, batting .288 with seven home runs and 21 RBI in 20 games. However, he cooled off in May, batting .252 with one home run and 15 RBI in 30 games. He is batting .290 in nine June games but has no home runs and four RBI.

Though what I find most interesting despite Montero's rapid decline in power is his plate discipline. In his last 39 games, Montero has drawn 22 walks and struck out 31 times. In his first 20 games, he had just four walks to 20 strikeouts. It seems as though Montero's approach at the plate changed, which is why he saw a drop in power.

Ultimately, it would be nice if Montero could hit for power, while also getting on base and not striking out as much. Though, from a Fantasy standpoint, if I had to choose between the April version of Montero or the May/June version, I would take the April version because Montero can offset the high strikeout rate with power and RBI production.

Montero has mostly played first base this season at Tacoma and could see a decent amount of playing time with Justin Smoak on the DL. Though, he still has catcher eligibilty in Fantasy, which is a huge benefit. If you are in a deep league and in need of a catcher, Montero could be worth the flier.
