Collette Calls: Failure to Launch

Jason Collette

Jason has been helping fantasy owners since 1999 at RotoJunkie, Fanball, Baseball Prospectus and now here at RotoWire. He covers the Tampa Bay Rays at You can hear Jason weekly on many of the Sirius/XM Fantasy channel offerings throughout the season as well as on the Towers of Power Baseball Hour Podcast on iTunes. He was selected as the Fantasy Baseball Writer of the Year by FSWA in 2013.

At the time he was traded for Michael Pineda, the reviews on Jesus Montero were mostly positive.

Jim Bowden had this to say:

Montero should develop into the Mariners' everyday catcher with designated hitter being an unfortunate option if catching does not work. Montero has a huge frame and is going to hit with power. He has a strong arm behind the plate but a slow release. He still needs help with footwork and calling a game, but his bat will play, and in time he should become adequate behind the plate. He has great bat speed, a smooth path to the ball and consistent sweet-spot contact. Montero should become a .300 hitter with 20-25 HR power in the major leagues.
