Last time we looked at the recent ex-Yankees was already 3 weeks ago, Spring Training is flying by.
- Jesus Montero– The former Yankee top prospect, and now Mariner top prospect is 11 for 36 in March, with 2 homeruns and 3 doubles. That’s good for a triple slash of .306/.366/.556. The 22 year old and Felix Hernandez appear to be developing a good pitcher/catcher relationship, as well as a friendship for the two Venezuelans from Carabobo. Hernandez pitching to Montero was certainly a dream for us Yankee fans, unfortunately its happening in a different uniform. Also, apparently Montero can catch… fish.
- Hector Noesi– The other part of the Michael Pineda trade’s latest spring training outing came on March 13th. Due to the amount of innings he threw in Winter Ball, the Mariners were careful with the righty. In his game against the Brewers he went 3.0 innings, gave up 3 hits, 1 walk, and 1 run. Noesi did get a start on Sunday in Japan though.
