Miguel Montero went 2-for-3 with a double, homer, walk, two RBI and two runs scored Friday against the Padres.

Montero got the Diamondbacks on the board with a run-scoring single in the fifth inning, and he scored the second run of the game on a subsequent single from Aaron Hill.

Jul 1 - 9:52 PM

Miguel Montero went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored to help the Diamondbacks edge the Dodgers 6-3 on Sunday.

The two-run shot was Montero's 10th of the season and his fifth in June. He's also got 13 RBI in 14 games this month. The hot stretch has Montero's line up to .273/.362/.449. After a forgettable 2013 season, the 30-year-old is reminding fantasy owners that he's capable of being one of the best offensive catchers in the game.
Jun 15 - 9:33 PM

Miguel Montero went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

Montero blasted a game-tying homer in the ninth inning off of Chad Qualls, knotting the game up at 4-4. It's his ninth long ball of the season and his fourth in 10 June games. The veteran continues to be a solid producer at and behind the dish, slashing .271/.363/.440 with 37 RBI.

The home run, a two-run shot, was his fifth of the year. With his two walks, Montero now has more walks (19) than strikeouts (17) this season. The catcher scuffled during the 2013 season, but his .287/.389/.457 line this year is more indicative of his offensive ability.

May 4 - 1:44 PM

Miguel Montero went 3-for-4 and hit his fourth homer of the year Saturday versus the Padres.

Besides the nice .286-4-17 line in 104 at-bats, Montero currently has an 11/15 K/BB ratio. He won't maintain that, but if he holds on to some of the gains, he could be a top-10 fantasy catcher all year long.
