Mariners | Jesus Montero still not ready to be everyday catcher

Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge indicated C Jesus Montero is not ready to catch more than two games in a row because he is not conditioned enough yet to be an everyday catcher. "You can be in the best shape of your life but it's still different than going out there and playing,'' Wedge said. "That's why you have spring training. These guys always come there in great shape, but there's nothing like baseball shape." Wedge said Montero appeared fatigued behind the plate and at the plate Tuesday, June 19, when catching his second straight game.
