2023 Fantasy Outlook
Montgomery has plus raw power and a very mature approach for a 20-year-old shortstop. The 22nd overall pick in 2021, Montgomery made his full-season debut last season and climbed from Single-A to Double-A. Over-the-fence power hasn't been a major weapon yet in games, as he hit 11 home runs in 96 games, but his .274/.381/.429 slash line, 19.8 K%, 12.9 BB% and 30.7 Hard% are all very promising marks given how aggressively he was pushed. Montgomery's command of the strike zone, hard-hit rate and 112 mph max exit velocity portend significant growth in game power over the coming seasons. Montgomery isn't a threat on the bases, and as a left-hitting, high-OBP shortstop, he profiles as a discount version of Marcelo Mayer, who was selected 18 picks earlier in the same class. Look for Montgomery to split time between Double-A and Triple-A this season. Read Past Outlooks
