Jesus Montero: Working Primarily At First Base

Posted on February 12, 2014 at 10:19 AM


Montero will work primarily at first base for the time being, Greg Johns of reports.


GM Jack Zduriencik said Montero will do a little catching in camp this spring, but the 24-year-old will focus primarily on first base for now. It was an inevitability, given Montero's limitations behind the plate, but a 50-game suspension for his involvement in Biogenesis delayed the transition. Questions remain, however, as to whether Montero, a .258/.303/.396 career hitter, can make it at first in the major leagues.
