. Jesus Montero is probably headed to Trenton, and will play there before the weekend.
Jesus Montero went 2 for 4 tonight. If this was his last game at Double-A, Montero’s record will show a pretty little .356/.406/.583 batting line. He struck out just 26 times in 48 games. Montero leaves the Florida State league as the leader in batting average, slugging percentage, total bases, and OPS.
Copying Beethoven dvd Montero will enter a much different environment when he hits Double-A. The hot, humid nights in Florida will be replaced with a cool wind off the Delaware River in Trenton. At 19 years old, he will a full two years younger than any one of his teammates. A whole new set of challenges will come as Montero sees more advanced pitches. Pitchers will have better stuff and fewer restrictions on what they are allowed to throw. If Montero holds his own against Double-A pitching, he’ll rocket up the league-wide prospect charts.
Best of all, this move sets Montero up (potentially) for a late 2010 MLB debut. He’ll be just 20 years old.
