So we find out today that once again, Jesus Montero is out of the SWB lineup in what is being described (rather cryptically) as a “manager’s decision”. What gives? We know he had an eye infection and was out a few days last week. Then he started Friday, sat yesterday (though he did pinch hit) and now is out again today. Manager Dave Miley even gave him an extra day off on Thursday after Jesus said he was ready to return. Details are scarce, even Donnie Collins over at the SWB Tribune has no details as of yet on the move. Is he being called up to replace Cervelli, but they’re waiting to make a roster move? Is it another disciplinary action, like what happened last year? Is the eye just still bothering him? Or….is he being held out because there’s some sort of blockbuster deal in the works? We know the Pirates and Giants are desperate for a Catcher. Bumgarner? Morton? The suspense is killing me.
Anyhoo, use this thread to speculate on what is probably a complete non-story, or whatever else you like. There’s Game 6 of the NBA Finals on tap, and for you draft
dodgers watchers Yankee 2nd rounder Sam Stafford will be pitching in tonight’s Texas-Arizona State game in the NCAA Regionals (ESPN2, 7 ET).
UPDATE-Eric Boland has the answer to this mystery via Twitter:
Cashman: Jesus Montero wasn’t in the lineup today because of an eye infection. No injury.
UPDATE #2-. . and the plot thickens. Check out these exchanges from Mike Ashmore and Donnie Collins:
