Mariners | Jesus Montero gains weight
Seattle Mariners DH Jesus Montero (knee) played 22 games in the Venezuelan Winter League in the offseason to test out his surgically repaired knee, and he said he felt "really good." However, he's also trying to lose weight heading into camp. "I gained a lot of weight in my country," he admitted. "So, now, I'm on a program to lose weight. I'm working really hard to get my weight back. I wasn't doing nothing (after finishing winter ball), just eating." Montero is likely to open the year at Triple-A Tacoma.
Fantasy Tip: GM Jack Zduriencik said Montero has a lot to prove. That means he won't be on the major league roster to start the season, and it'll take a lot for him to work his way back to the major leagues, considering the M's have plenty of first base and DH types.
