Mariners | Jesus Montero, Hector Noesi acquired

The Seattle Mariners acquired C Jesus Montero, the top prospect in the New York Yankees system, along with P Hector Noesi Friday, Jan. 13, in exchange for SP Michael Pineda and P Jose Campos, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Montero let his bat do the talking in a stint in the majors last season, posting a .328 average with four homers and 28 RBIs in 17 games. There are questions about his ability to catch in the majors, but his offense is very much majors-ready. The 22-year-old will see plenty of playing time alongside Miguel Olivo and at designated hitter, much like the Yanks planned on using him.
