If you were to look at Baseball America's Top 10 Yankees Prospects, you'll notice that 4 of the top 10 are interestingly enough....catchers? Strange, yes, but Austin Romine (No. 2), Gary Sanchez (No. 7) and J.R. Murphy (No. 8) should not fear they will never play backstop for the Bombers with Montero in front of them, Montero is likely to move to first base, designated hitter, or right field. Even though Montero just turned 20 in November, he'll start this season in Scranton Wilkes-Barre and could be in the majors by this fall or 2011. Montero can absolutely mash the baseball, between High-A and Double A last year he hit a combined .337 with 17 Hrs and 70 RBI in a mere 92 games. Regardless of his position the Yankees will find a spot for someone with his hitting ability.
