2023 Fantasy Outlook
An ultra-toolsy 6-foot-4 outfielder whom the Rockies selected with the eighth overall pick in 2021, Montgomery was limited to 62 games in his first full season due to quad and hand injuries. He returned to Single-A from a complex-league rehab assignment in early July and proceeded to slash .322/.412/.514 with four home runs, two triples, 18 doubles, six steals, a 26.5 K% and an 8.8 BB% in 42 games. Fresno is a great place to hit, especially in the summer, and Montgomery took advantage. His chase rate was very poor, according to Prospects Live, and hit tool concerns have followed him since high school. He has plus power and plus speed, and could add even more power in the coming years. Montgomery is kind of like a prep version of Joey Wiemer -- big outfielders with huge tools who might not hit enough. Look for Montgomery to spend most of the year in another hitter-friendly environment at High-A Spokane. Read Past Outlooks

Cranking in Single-A

September 9, 2022
Montgomery has a 12-game hitting streak going for Single-A Fresno during which he's compiled a .434/.500/.736 slash line with two home runs, 15 RBI and three steals.
He's shown promise all year long when healthy, as evidenced by his season line of .307/.386/.489 with six homers and nine stolen bases. Whiffs have been a big issue for last year's eighth overall pick (27.6 percent strikeout rate), but he's been noticeably better in that regard during the course of this streak (16.7 percent). Thanks to questions about his hit tool, Montgomery hasn't gotten a lot of hype relative to his status as a top draft pick, so there may be some opportunity to scoop him up on the cheap in dynasty formats.
