Anthony McCarron wrote a great piece about Yanks’ top prospect Jesus Montero yesterday evening, chronicling the youngster’s workouts behind the plate in Tampa last week. He’s fielding fungos to simulate wild pitches, working on shortening his throwing motion, things of that nature. More importantly, McCarron notes that the Yankees are committed to seeing if he can stick behind the plate long-term, which would obviously boost his value. There’s no harm in letting him in try.
Make sure you check it out, it’s a great article. Aside from all the defense stuff, McCarron also touches on Montero’s hobby of building race cars, which he inherited from his father. My favorite quote: “I hope they don’t trade me because I want to be with them the rest of my life.” Same here Jesus, same here.
