2023 Fantasy Outlook
Montero made his MLB debut in 2022 and was solid in his first taste of the majors with a .233/.270/.432 slash line in 53 games. He struggled with strikeouts at time in the minors, which carried over to the big leagues with a 32.4 percent strikeout rate, and his 4.3 percent walk rate was also poor. However, those numbers at Triple-A were manageable, and he likely doesn't have much else to prove at the highest level of the minors. Colorado's infield appears mostly set with C.J. Cron at first base, Brendan Rodgers at second and Ryan McMahon at third, while top prospect Ezequiel Tovar appears primed to start at shortstop. Montero doesn't have a clear path to regular playing time to open 2023, so he may need to settle for a bench role early on, assuming he's able to crack the Opening Day roster. Read Past Outlooks
