Mariners | Jesus Montero improving

Seattle Mariners C Jesus Montero is improving his defense behind the plate this spring, and he threw out Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips trying to steal Tuesday, March 20. "He's gotten better," said SP Kevin Millwood. "That's all you can ask of him. I don't think anybody is asking him to go out and be a Gold Glove catcher right away, but he's definitely improved." Montero has worked hard this spring on blocking balls and having a quicker release behind the dish. C Miguel Olivo will handle the bulk of the catching this year, though.
