Blue Jays claim DH Jesus Montero

The Toronto Blue Jays have claimed former Yankees and Mariners C/1B/DH Jesus Montero and designated AJ Jimenez for assignment.

Fantasy Impact

It's an unexpected move and not one that really fits the Blue Jays needs as there is no place for Montero on this roster. Russell Martin and Josh Thole have a firm grasp on the two catcher positions while Chris Colabello and Justin Smoak will man a crowded first base position. Expect Jesus Montero to serve as minor-league depth.

Jesus Montero has been placed on waivers

Jesus Montero has been placed on waivers by the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Impact

Jesus Montero has ZERO relevance in fantasy baseball. Keep him off of everything until further notice.

Jesus Montero stays hot versus Royals

The Mariners jumped all over Jeremy Guthrie on Tuesday night, and Jesus Montero had a big night on their way to an 11-2 rout of the AL's best team. Montero was 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and three RBI.

Fantasy Impact

That's three home runs in the past week for Montero, who is looking to finally shake the "bust" label that has hounded him for years. He's still not quite a serviceable fantasy option, and that will only get worse as he eventually losing catching eligibility.

Jesus Montero's bat stays hot during recent call-up

Jesus Montero is 6-for-18 with three doubles and a home run since being called back up. The slimmed down first baseman is earning himself an extended role with the major league club.

Fantasy Impact

With the Mariners largely out of contention, the team is likely to continue rolling with Montero at 1st base and DH. He has responded by hitting consistently, particularly against left-handed pitching. While the team has frequently adhered to platoon splits for starting lineups, the struggles of left-handed hitting Logan Morrison means owners should see more and more opportunities for Montero.

Jesus Montero keeps his hit streak alive

Jesus Montero started at first base for the Mariners and went 1-for-3 at the plate earning a hit for the third game in a row.

Fantasy Impact

Since his call-up on July 10th, Montero has swung an impressive bat owning a .353 BA with one home run and three RBI in his seven games. Until his role with the Mariners is set he is a risk to own in any format.
