2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sometimes a unique skill allows a hitter to have success even when it seems he should be an easy out. Montero is an uber-aggressive hitter with length in his swing that should, in theory, lead to hard contact that is mitigated by a lot of swing and miss. Fortunately, Montero has elite hand-eye coordination and barrel awareness that has allowed him to have immense success thus far, particularly as a 19-year-old at Low-A. He won the Midwest League batting title (.322 AVG) and took home MVP honors while finishing second in the league with a 157 wRC+. He maintained an impressive all-fields, line-drive-oriented approach after a promotion to High-A. All but one of his 16 home runs went to the pull side, but if he can maintain a strikeout rate around 20% while lacing line drives to all fields, he should continue to have a lot of success. Double-A will be a big test. He may outgrow third base, so it is imperative that he continues to rake. Read Past Outlooks

Assigned to Double-A

April 4, 2019
Montero will open the year with Double-A Springfield, Mike Rosenbaum of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
This is a challenging assignment for Montero, but it's an assignment he earned after a dominant 2018 season at Low-A and a decent performance over the final month after a promotion to High-A. Montero operates with a pretty aggressive approach, but his elite hand-eye coordination has allowed that approach to work thus far. He is already a known commodity in dynasty leagues, but if he lays waste to Double-A pitchers in the same manner he dominated Low-A pitchers, his stock will continue to soar.
