Cubs' Miguel Montero: Hits fourth homer Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montero went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double during Sunday's win over Colorado.

The veteran has settled into a predictable role with the Cubs this season. He's starting a couple of games a week and coming off the bench to pinch hit. Montero has made the most of his 90 plate appearances with a .300/.367/.488 slash line, but his four homers, eight RBI and 12 runs are hardly tilting the fantasy scales.

Cubs' Miguel Montero: Blasts solo shot against Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montero went 2-for-4 with a solo home run during Saturday's win over Boston.

The backstop has been seeing semi-regular playing time and producing when in the lineup. Montero sports an impressive .394/.429/.606 slash line over 35 plate appearances. However, without more consistent at-bats, his counting stats aren't going to add up very fast.

Cubs' Miguel Montero: Three hits including first homer Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montero went 3-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Tuesday's 9-7 win over the Brewers.

The fourth-inning blast off Jeff Nelson was Montero's first of the season. He's slashing .278/.316/.444 to begin the season, mostly on the strength of his last couple of starts, but with Willson Contreras locked into the starting role, Montero's utility is limited to NL-only and deeper two-catcher formats.

Cubs' Miguel Montero: Won't always be paired with Kyle Hendricks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite pairing with Kyle Hendricks most of spring training, Montero's starts during the regular season will depend more on the opposing pitcher, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

It was looking like Montero might be a personal catcher for Hendricks, but Cubs manager Joe Maddon dismissed that notion. "It benefits (Montero) and us to put him out there with the right pitcher," Maddon said. "Willson (Contreras) has Jon Lester, but otherwise it's wide open." Expect Contreras to get the bulk of the starts behind the plate for Chicago, with Montero spelling him on occasion.

Cubs' Miguel Montero: Impressing this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montero is impressing Cubs manager Joe Maddon this spring, but that doesn't mean he's going to get a bigger role once the regular season starts, the Chicago Sun-TImes reports.

Maddon said he likes how Montero is moving and throwing this spring, but the veteran is still looking at just a start or two a week in place of Willson Contreras in 2017. "Willson is the guy, and Miggy knows that," Maddon said. Montero's only real path to fantasy relevance this season appears to be a Conteras injury.
