The Diamondbacks traded Montero to the Cubs in the off season and although Montero was a fan favorite and loved his time in Arizona, he understood the move.
"It was time for me to get a fresh start somewhere else," Montero said. "That being said it’s not that I wanted to go anywhere, because the Diamondbacks always treated me right and I loved the time being with the Diamondbacks organization. Looking back I think it was the best thing that could have happened for me at this time."
Montero did not start Friday’s game, but came in late during the extra-inning contest.
