Miguel Montero, C Arizona Diamondbacks

When Arizona Diamondback starting catcher Chris Snyder went down with a back strain in late June, Miguel Montero was thrust into the starting lineup.

Since then he's been on a tear.

In the month of July, Montero is hitting a remarkable .383 with 3 HR and 6 RBI.

In a recent series against the St. Louis Cardinals, Montero batted 7-12 with 2 HR and 2 RBI.

This isn't a fluke either. When Montero has been giving playing time he has performed.

In August 2008, Montero batted an incredible .429 with 4 HR and 4 doubles in just 29 at-bats.

If you're weak at the catcher position or you're stud catcher is slumping, the hot Montero is a smart pickup to insert into you're starting lineup.

Ride him while he's hot.



In the last two games on July 21 and 22, Montero has continued his hot streak by hitting a home run in both games one of which was a three run home run.
