2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2013

Montas, 20, was undrafted international free agent. He has a sturdy frame, one conducive to producing good velocity on his fastball (96-to-100 mph). The heater will get him by at the lower levels, but he'll need to learn to control and command it better as he moves up. Cleaning up his delivery is also must. Montas is working on a slider that shows promise, while his changeup shows little deception at this point in his career. He's bypassing short-season Lowell to open 2013 with the full-season Low-A Greenville Drive.
