Player Outlook
Elehuris Montero did his best in September to salvage another disappointing season, slashing .286/.355/.531 with six home runs during the final month. Four of those homers came over the final six contests of the season. Still, the overall numbers were quite dreadful, and the 36.2 percent strikeout rate along with a 4.9 percent walk rate were untenable. Montero also looks to be unplayable at third base at this point, with the Rockies not giving him a start there after April. He's still just 25 and mashed again during his multiple stints back at Triple-A Albuquerque (1.129 OPS with 15 home runs in 35 games), so perhaps we shouldn't call it quits on Montero just yet. He's probably running out of chances, though.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Clubs fourth homer

    Montero went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 11-9 loss to the Dodgers. Montero has an extra-base hit and at least one RBI in each of his last three games. He began Tuesday's game on the bench but entered early after Charlie Blackmon (hamstring) exited the contest. Montero is at a middling .209/.274/.313 slash line with four homers, 27 RBI, 22 runs scored and 10 doubles over 62 contests this season, though he's hit just .167 (8-for-48) in June. If Blackmon misses additional time, that may allow Montero to be in the lineup more often, as his playing time has started to slip.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Late addition to lineup

    Montero will play first base and bat cleanup Saturday against Pittsburgh, Patrick Lyons of JustBaseball.com reports. Brenton Doyle (knee) was scratched from the lineup Saturday, and as a result Jake Cave will move to center field as Michael Toglia moves to right, opening up first base for Montero. Montero has just two hits in his last 23 at-bats and owns a .546 OPS on the year.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Serving as DH on Friday

    Montero is starting as the designated hitter and batting eighth for Friday's game against the Pirates. Montero was initially slated to begin Friday's game on the bench, but he was inserted into the starting lineup after Jake Cave (undisclosed) was hit in the head by a line drive during batting practice. Montero will face off against Pirates opener Carmen Mlodzinski.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Heading to bench Sunday

    Montero is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at St. Louis, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports. Montero started the previous six games but will take a seat Sunday after going 3-for-23 with nine strikeouts during that span. Michael Toglia will start at first base and bat seventh in the series finale versus the Cardinals.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Taking seat Sunday

    Montero is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports. Montero started the previous six games but will head to the bench Sunday after batting .167 during that span. Kris Bryant will shift to first base while Brendan Rodgers serves as the designated hitter and Alan Trejo starts at second base.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Sitting in second straight

    Montero is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics. Kris Bryant will make a second straight start at first base since his return from the injured list Tuesday, with Montero hitting the bench for both contests. The 25-year-old could still see regular playing time against left-handed pitching, but Montero looks like he'll be the odd man out of the lineup versus righties for now. Despite seeing everyday playing time for most of the season, Montero has disappointed with an underwhelming .582 OPS through 153 plate appearances.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Sitting in second straight game

    Montero is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers. Montero's grasp on the everyday role at first base seems to be slipping, as he finds himself on the bench for the second day in a row. Hunter Goodman -- who went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 8-3 win -- will draw another start at first base at Montero's expense. Montero has gone 5-for-31 with one extra-base hit (a double) and a 31.3 percent strikeout rate over his last nine games.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Sitting Wednesday

    Montero is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants. Montero will exit the starting nine for the first time since April 21, when he sat out the front end of a doubleheader with the Mariners. His move to the bench comes while he's fallen into a 3-for-23 slump at the dish over his last six games, though the Rockies haven't signaled that Montero's standing atop the depth chart at first base is in any jeopardy.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Reaches base four times

    Montero went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Padres. Montero tallied his first three-hit game of the season and his second multi-hit effort over a three-game span. His second-inning double was his first extra-base hit since April 12 and he also kickstarted a five-run fourth inning with a leadoff single and later walked with the bases loaded in the same frame. The 25-year-old is now slashing .242/.288/.273 with four RBI, three runs and a 5:11 BB:K in 73 plate appearances.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Improved K%, but slow start

    Montero is slashing .205/.265/.227 with zero home runs, two runs and two RBI through 13 games. He has been playing regularly at first base and his 16.3 percent strikeout rate is a massive improvement over the 36.2 percent strikeout rate he logged in 85 games last year. It looks like his plate skills may have improved, but he may need to start producing soon in order to hold onto his starting role.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Not in lineup Tuesday

    Montero is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks. After sitting out Sunday against the Rays, Montero rejoined the starting lineup at first base for the series opener Monday, when he finished 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly. He's had a slow start to the season, slashing .160/.241/.160 with one RBI and no extra-base hits over 29 plate appearances. Kris Bryant will start at first base Tuesday and hit fifth against Diamondbacks right-hander Merrill Kelly.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Bows out of lineup

    Montero is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays. Montero will move to the bench for the series finale after going 2-for-8 between Friday's 10-7 win and Saturday's 8-6 loss. After sitting out Saturday while battling back tightness, Kris Bryant will make his return to the lineup Sunday in Montero's usual spot at designated hitter.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Sits in second straight game

    Montero is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports. Montero started the Rockies' first five games of the season but slashed just .143/.294/.143 with three walks and three strikeouts over those contests. He's on the bench Wednesday for the second day in a row and looks to be in danger of falling into a part-time role in the wake of his poor start to the season.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Everyday player so far

    Montero will serve as the Rockies' designated hitter and No. 8 batter in Monday's game against the Cubs, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports. Montero has now started each of the Rockies' first five games of the season, with three starts coming at DH and two at first base. Charlie Blackmon has been playing more right field than expected early on and Kris Bryant not being confined to first base has allowed Montero everyday at-bats thus far. He has just two hits, but a 3:3 K:BB is encouraging for a player who drew just 15 walks all of last season.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: May get looks at DH

    Montero may be forcing his way into the lineup with his performance this spring, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Montero is projected to be on the Opening Day roster, though his fit in the starting lineup is unclear. He'd likely gain at-bats at designated hitter due to his defensive deficiencies, which would in turn push Charlie Blackmon to the outfield while endangering Sean Bouchard's playing time. Montero has displayed a familiar profile this spring, as he's posted an impressive .333 ISO but is still striking out at a 27 percent clip.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Making case for playing time

    Montero started at first base and went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Cubs, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Montero has shown intriguing power throughout his minor-league career and has flashed potential across 492 big-league plate appearances. He's gotten off to a strong start this spring, ripping two home runs across 13 plate appearances while striking out only twice. Montero likely has an advantage in the competition for a bench spot on the roster because he is out of minor-league options, though he could also push for at-bats at either first base or designated hitter if he continues to show well this spring.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Smacks homer in three-hit game

    Montero went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, a double, a walk and four total runs scored in Thursday's 14-5 win over the Dodgers. This was arguably Montero's base game of the year from a fantasy perspective. He's logged six three-hit efforts, four of which have come since Aug. 15. The infielder is at a .247/.294/.417 slash line with nine homers, 37 RBI, 37 runs scored, 15 doubles and no stolen bases through 82 contests overall.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: On bench Saturday

    Montero is out of the lineup Saturday versus the Cubs. Montero will be on the bench for the second time since Wednesday. Prior to that, the 25-year-old had started in 18 consecutive games in which he slashed .306/.389/.484. However, after Friday's game, the infielder is 1-for-12 in the last three. Hunter Goodman will take his place in the lineup Saturday.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Draws third straight start

    Montero will start at first base and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Montero will pick up his third consecutive start Sunday, this time facing off against right-hander Kevin Gausman after he had previously re-entered the lineup versus a pair of southpaws to begin the series with Toronto. Following his call-up from Triple-A Albuquerque last weekend, Hunter Goodman had displaced Montero as the team's everyday first baseman, but manager Bud Black has now deployed Goodman at designated hitter and in right field for the rookie's last two starts. With Michael Toglia now sitting out for a third straight game and Goodman getting looks elsewhere, Montero looks like he'll settle back in as the Rockies' primary first baseman. Montero enters Sunday's contest with a .417/.488/.694 slash line over his past 11 contests.

  • Rockies' Elehuris Montero: Gets back into lineup

    Montero went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored Friday against the Blue Jays. Montero had been the odd man out in the competition with Hunter Goodman for playing time at first base, sitting out the prior five games. However, he got the start Friday and delivered a two-run homer in the third inning. Montero has displayed an all-or-nothing skillset, as he has three homers in his last 13 games but has struck out at a 32.6 percent clip as well.
