News: Montero is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers. Impact: Manager Kirk Gibson will cut back on the left-handed bats in his lineup with the incomparable Clayton Kershaw on the mound for the Dodgers. As a result, Montero, along with Jake Lamb and David Peralta, will all head to the bench.(RotoWire, )

News: Montero parked his 13th home run of the season Friday against the Padres, as he went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and two RBI. Impact: You don't get dominant numbers from Montero, but you do get consistency across the board. He gets on base at a nice rate for a catcher (.260/.345/.410), even with his batting average hanging around the .250 mark most of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Montero is out of the lineup Thursday against the Nationals. Impact: Tuffy Gosewisch will step in behind the plate to catch Wade Miley as Montero sits after five straight starts. Manager Kirk Gibson recently acknowledged that Montero will receive more frequent days off over the final weeks of the season, so he may not see a stretch of five straight starts again the rest of the way.(RotoWire, )

News: Montero is out of the Diamondbacks' lineup Friday against the Marlins. Impact: Manager Kirk Gibson said recently that the team will take measures to reduce Montero's workload over the final weeks of the season, so his absence Friday is by no means surprising. Montero played both games of Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland -- with one start as the DH -- and caught Thursday's game as well. Tuffy Gosewisch will step in behind the plate Friday.(RotoWire, )
