The Arizona Diamondbacks are committed to keeping C Miguel Montero fresh this year after he missed more than a month last season with back issues. Montero was rested Thursday, April 3, in favor of C Tuffy Gosewisch. Montero is expected to start each game this weekend.
Fantasy Tip: Montero is still a No. 1 catcher for fantasy purposes. But a few more days off here and there could go a long way in keeping him healthy over the full season.
