The hype that has surrounded Montero's game is no fluke. He is a once-in-a-generation talent offensively, and you'd better believe he's ready to make a substantial impact on New York's lineup from the get-go next season.
If there's one identifiable weakness to his game, it's clearly his bulky frame. He isn't able to get to a number of wild pitches that smaller, more agile catchers would normally get to. However, he does have a strong arm and is accurate with his throws. There is work to be done from behind the plate, nevertheless.
Now to the part that scouts drool over.
Montero's big frame and wide stance give him a great deal of power potential. In 109 triple-A games last season, he batted .288 with 18 home runs and 67 RBI, along with a .467 slugging percentage. He is, without a doubt, Joe Girardi's catcher of the future.
