Montero in tonight’s Triple-A lineup

By

Via Donnie Collins, Jesus Montero is in tonight’s starting lineup for Triple-A Scranton. Chances are we’ll never know the real reason why he rode the pine the last two days, but at least he’s back in there today. He’s priority number one as far as the farm system goes, Montero simply has to play every singleĀ  day if he’s healthy.

    I thought the real reason was an eye infection?

    They are showcasing him for a Reyes trade!

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      That would be a horrific trade.

        This

        Not saying I would do it, but horrific? A top-3 SS in the prime of his career, you have to at least consider it. Yea it’s a lot of money, but it’s also a known quantity.

        • YankeesJunkie says:

          The idea itself is not terrible. The consquence of what happens to Jeter just would be terrible for the clubhouse and the amount of pressure on Reyes would be tremendous. I don’t many of the stat fans would care as much, but MSN would have a field day.

          • JMK says:

            Plus, he’s an FA in a few months and will demand a monstrous contract. Having just given up the best-hitting prospect in the minors, he’d have a huge advantage in negotiations over the Yanks. I love Reyes but not for the type of money he’d demand.

          • Jackson says:

            Reyes is injury prone.

        • Ted Nelson says:

          Calling him a top 3 SS is generous. You’re not trading for his 2011 to date production, but his here on out production.

          • Urban says:

            It’s not crazy. In fact, put him in the A.L. and he’s instantly the top SS, and by a light year. Very weak position right now. If I’m an AL GM, I’d be looking at Reyes as a way to instantly make my team stronger compared to the competition.

          • Steve in PDX says:

            Behind Hanley and Tulo, who would you rather have? Yes 2011 is a great year for him, but he hasn’t exactly been a schmuck over his whole career.

        • Urban says:

          Horrific is a strong word considering what Reyes can deliver at SS. Trading Montero though for what would amount to a rental, and the problem is would cause with Jeter and his contract means it’s not going to happen.

          Oh, yeah. The Mets will not want to see Reyes playing for the Yankees, and the Yankees would not want to watch Montero becoming s stud in NY wearing a Mets uniform.

          Won’t happen.

      • King George says:

        I hope you’re joking…

    With Martin being scratched because of his back once more I bet a DL stint will happen and Montero will be up.

  4. Kevin says:

    Ship this man up to New York now! Martin looks like a wounded gazelle out there The time is now.

  5. sean says:

    martin not in lineup tonight..maybe dl and jesus gets called up..i hope

  6. sean says:

    this would be the perfect time for jesus to come up…cervelli sucks and martin is hurt alot

  7. Montero21 says:

    Jesus is coming……

  8. Montero21 says:
