Miguel Montero has been dropped to eighth in the Diamondbacks lineup for Friday night's game against the Phillies.

D'Backs manager Kirk Gibson was quick to say that he didn't expect it to be a permanent move in the lineup. Perhaps Gibby is just trying to to take the pressure off Montero in an effort to get his bat going. He's been abysmal at the dish thus far, hitting .198/.306/.270 with two homers, 12 RBI and a 25/18 K/BB ratio through 32 games.
