According to King, the 19-year-old Venezuelan suffered the injury on Saturday night while catching a game with Trenton. His timetable for return was set at six weeks, meaning that a winter ball stint, either in the Arizona Fall or the Venezuelan league, is not out of the question.
Disappointingly, this injury likely removes Montero from serious consideration for our Minor League Player of the Year award. He batted .337/.370/.562 in 347 at-bats, mashing 17 home runs and driving in 70 runs in 92 games split almost evenly between Trenton and high Class A Tampa.
