BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 After 10 minor-league seasons, Luke Montz has played all over the country and all over the diamond (C, 1B, LF, RF, DH in 2012 alone) hoping the glimmers of power he displays might turn into a big-league job one of these days.
2009 Thanks to Chase Utley, Montz parlayed an early season power streak at Double-A into a September call-up—Utley's collision with Flores knocked the Nats' regular catcher out for the final month, and Montz was an available option. He wasn't considered a prospect before this year, and there was nothing in his performance after June 1 to alter that. Feel free to recognize what he did at Harrisburg, but don't let it color your expectations.
