Revisiting doubts about Jesus Montero's defense
The Mariners planned to work Jesus Montero in steadily behind the plate, but Miguel Olivo's groin injury has forced the 22-year-old rookie into a starting role.
That's provided more opportunity to dissect Montero's defense, which was dismissed as inadequate by numerous analysts following the trade that sent him to Seattle.
In the video below, Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby agree that while Montero's defense hasn't been as bad as advertised, he still would be better off playing another position.
