Description: Mariners designated hitter Jesus Montero will not return this season as Seattle is shutting him down for the remainder of 2014.
Insight: Mariners beat writer Bob Dutton reports the club wants to address Montero's non-baseball issues the rest of the year. On Thursday, Montero attempted to contront a team scout in the crowd of a Class-A Everett game for poking fun at his lack of hustle. Allegedly, the scout sent an ice cream sandwich into the dugout for Montero. The DH is extremely talented and only 24, but Seattle will not promote him back to the big leagues until he learns to control his temper.

Description: Just called up Mariners C/1B Jesus Montero will start at DH and bat sixth Thursday night versus Baltimore and Wei-Yin Chen.
Insight: Once an elite prospect, Montero has done nothing but disappoint fantasy owners at the big league level. He may only get a one-game tryout with Kendrys Morales expected to arrive Friday.
 
6/17/2014 1:35:00 PM
Description: Mariners C/1B Jesus Montero will start for a third consecutive day, but will do it as a first baseman for the first time in his career on Tuesday.
Insight: Once an elite prospect, Montero has done nothing but disappoint fantasy owners at the big league level. He's produced a hit in both games since being called up from Tacoma.

Insight: Once an elite prospect, Montero has done nothing but disappoint fantasy owners at the big league level. Still, he was hitting .270/.345/.455 with an .800 OPS in 59 games in the minors before getting the call. During that time, he hit eight home runs, 15 doubles and knocked in 40. If you're struggling at catcher, he could be worth a flyer.
 
3/14/2014 6:32:00 PM
Description: Mariners C/DH Jesus Montero was sent to the minors Friday, according to Greg Johns of MLB.com.
Insight: Montero reported to camp 40 pounds overweight after serving a 50-game suspension for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal last season, so he's not in the Mariners' good graces at the moment. He did go 9-for-29 with two homers and a .976 OPS this spring, though.
 
6/1/2013 4:55:00 PM
Description: Mariners C/DH Jesus Montero will miss 4-6 weeks with a torn meniscus in his left knee, according to Greg Johns of MLB.com.
Insight: Montero was demoted to Triple-A last week and now he'll have to rehab from this injury. The team is in the process of converting him to a full-time first baseman, but that will have to be put on hold.
 
Cold5/23/2013 12:21:00 PM
Description: Mariners designated hitter/catcher Jesus Montero has been demoted to Triple-A Tacoma.
Insight: That's called rock bottom, folks. Montero's season-long slump has finally earned him a one-way ticket to the minor leagues. You probably should have dumped Montero a long time ago but if he's still on your roster, promptly click the drop button.
 
5/12/2013 10:05:00 AM
Description: Seattle catcher Jesus Montero is a .500 hitter (7-for-14) against Oakland left-hander Tommy Milone with a 1.286 OPS.
Insight: Montero was hyped as a big-time offensive prospect with the Yankees, but he has disappointed since being traded to the Mariners for Michael Pineda. He's hitting just .198 with three homers and eight RBI this season. Perhaps this favorable matchup will help get him above the Mendoza Line.
 
5/8/2013 6:47:00 PM
Description: Seattle catcher Jesus Montero hit a solo homer off Pirates starter A.J. Burnett Wednesday afternoon.
Insight: Montero was hyped as a big-time offensive prospect with the Yankees, but he has disappointed since being traded to the Mariners in a deal for Michael Pineda. He's hitting just .205 with three homers and eight RBI this season.

Insight: Montero has started slowly, going 1-for-9 in the first two games, but he batted .400 this spring. Seattle has moved in the fences at Safeco Field, which should help improve Montero's 10.8 percent HR/FB rate.

He actually hit .310 with 10 homers, 32 RBIs and an .841 OPS in 213 at-bats as a catcher compared to .226 with five homers, 30 RBIs and a .574 OPS in 301 as a DH.

10/3/2012 9:38:00 AM
Description: Seattle DH Jesus Montero is 5-for-9 (.556) against Angels righty Jered Weaver with four homers and a 2.444 OPS.
Insight: Montero has hit .258 with 15 HR and 59 RBI in 511 at-bats, but he's yet to turn the promise he showed in New York into season-long numbers. However, his statistics against a great pitcher like Weaver are extraordinary. Start him.

Insight: Montero is batting .337 since the All-Star break with an OPS 231 points higher. perhaps he's finally settled in as a key cog in the Mariners offense. Despite the small sample size, Montero should be a must start on Tuesday.

Insight: It should come as no surprise that Montero's big day Sunday came from the catching position. In 162 plate appearances as a catcher this season, Montero is hitting .316 with eight homers and 22 RBIs, compared to .242/4/23 in 237 plate appearances as the designated hitter.
