Jesus Montero C SEA 18 Hrs

Montero has been suspended for the remainder of the 2014 season, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

During a recent rehab outing with short-season Everett, Montero was acting as first-base coach when the catcher and a Mariners scout had a disagreement in which the details are currently in question. One thing that is known is Montero confronting and spitting on the scout, resulting in the former's suspension. The 24-year-old reported to spring training this year 40 pounds overweight, which may have been the impetus for the confrontation.

Montero will not play any more baseball this season, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

During a recent game at Everett while on rehab, Montero received an ice cream sandwich from a member of the Mariners' scouting department. Montero had to be restrained by his team's pitching coach in between innings, as he took a bat and attempted to confront the member of the organization in the stands. The bizarre incident ended Montero's 2014 campaign with a .286/.350/.489 line, 16 homers and 74 RBI, but it will also prevent him from joining the big club when rosters expand Monday.

Jesus Montero smacked a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

The longball was the first in the majors in over a year for the recently-recalled Montero. The former top prospect has started three of six games since being brought back up and has three hits in his first 10 at-bats. He needs to be owned in AL-only formats.

Mariners recalled 1B/DH Jesus Montero from Triple-A Tacoma.

Just in time for a series against his former team, the Yankees. Montero is expected to mainly be used as a designated hitter against left-handed pitching, but he could see a bit of time at first base. The former top prospect is batting .270/.345/.455 with eight home runs and 40 RBI in 59 games at Tacoma this season.

Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that the Mariners are calling up Jesus Montero.

The former top prospect has provided reason for mild optimism this season at Triple-A Tacoma, batting .270/.345/.455 with eight home runs and 40 RBI in 59 games. He could see a good amount of playing time between DH and first base while Justin Smoak (quad) is sidelined and may be worth a flier in some deeper mixed fantasy formats.

Jesus Montero C SEA 4 Months

Mariners first base prospect Jesus Montero is hitting .300/.338/.629 for Triple-A Tacoma.

Montero hit home runs in four of five games last week, and hit .347/.389/.735 over his past 12 games. At age 24, Montero is now a full time 1B/DH, but is still below the average age in the Pacific Coast League. The Mariners are getting little production out of their outfield, so if Corey Hart is healthy enough to return to the outfield, Montero could pick up at bats at DH.

Mariners optioned 1B/DH Jesus Montero and OFs Xavier Avery and James Jones to Triple-A Tacoma; reassigned SS Chris Taylor to minor league camp.

Montero showed up to camp 40 pounds overweight this spring but actually hit the ball well, batting .310/.355/.621 with three doubles and two homers over 12 games. He's probably still not in the team's good graces but has a shot to make it back up to the majors at some point this season.
