Jesus Montero is a New York Yankee. Despite going 0-for-4 in his big-league debut, Montero is finally getting his chance, and Yankees fans have reason to be excited.
But how will Montero fare in his first month on the job, as New York cruises toward the playoffs? How quickly can he adjust to big-league pitching and actualize some of his tremendous potential? Will his power materialize in this short audition, or will we need to wait until 2012 to see that skill on display?
Count this as one voice in support of Montero. Tools like his bat, and especially his pop, do not fail very often. Nor will Montero be the only big-name prospect to make a September splash. These eight stud youngsters will have sparkling final months, making good impressions and angling for 2012 gigs.
