Cubs | Miguel Montero sitting out vs. Mets

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:00:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Wednesday, July 1. C David Ross will be the starting catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Montero ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in all formats Wednesday. He is currently reeling at the dish with a .189/.250/.189 slash line over his past 12 games. Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has .585 OPS this season, and FantasyScore players should aim higher Wednesday.

Cubs | Miguel Montero hitting cleanup

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 07:57:51 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero will bat cleanup Sunday, June 21, against the Minnesota Twins and RHP Kyle Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is just 1-for-his-last-12, but eight of his nine home runs this season have come against right-handers. Despite his recent struggles, Montero can be used in GPP tournaments as he's in an excellent spot for FantasyScore production with an excellent pitching matchup.

Cubs | Miguel Montero not in the lineup

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 09:19:18 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Trevor May Saturday, June 20. C David Ross will be the starting catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) usually sits out when Jon Lester is the starting pitcher, so he should return soon. Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .167 this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Miguel Montero returns to lineup

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 14:36:10 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (back) is starting behind the plate and batting fourth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Thursday, June 18. He was a late scratch for the Cubs' 17-0 win over the Indians Wednesday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been boom or bust most of the season. In June, he has just eight hits, but four of those hits have cleared the fence. Facing Salazer doesn't stand out as an ideal spot to target Montero for FantasyScore contests, especially considering he is already risky.

Cubs | Miguel Montreo a late scratch

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 14:15:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (back) was a late scratch Wednesday, June 17, with a stiff back. C David Ross draws into the lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Shaun Marcum Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Montero ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) from all your fantasy lineups and check back for updates on his status. At this point, it doesn't appear to be a serious injury. Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a .167 batting average this season, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Cubs | Miguel Montero ejected

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 22:12:02 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero was ejected Tuesday, June 16, against the Cleveland Indians for arguing balls and strikes.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that he didnít leave early due to injury. He was hitless in three at-bats with a strikeout before getting the gate. At $3,800 (or 7.6% of cap) he is a solid, yet unspectacular option in FantasyScore.

Cubs | Miguel Montero sitting

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 17:02:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Sunday, June 14. C David Ross will start and is hitting seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is known more for his defensive skills, and with a .157 average for the year, he can be ignored at FantasyScore.

Cubs | Miguel Montero showing some power

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 21:35:53 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk in a 6-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds Thursday, June 11, and he is 5-for-8 with two home runs, six RBI and three runs scored as the cleanup hitter in his last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has a solid .821 OPS this year, and he makes a decent mid-priced play at the catcher spot at FantasyScore, especially when he is batting cleanup.
