Is Jesus Montero really a prospect? He looked like the superstar we all hoped he would be in September and October. Montero should hit for power the other way and put the ball in play on a consistent basis.
He also went 2-2 in the ALDS against the Tigers. The only thing I think think he is lacking is a glove, but he will slot in nicely at DH. Montero will start 2011 in the lineup at DH if he is still with the Yankees, but if he is traded he will be sorely missed.
Watch out because Montero has the upside to be a .320, 40 HR, 120 RBI hitter. He may not fit in New York, but if he is traded he will net an elite pitcher in return.
