Diamondbacks, Miguel Montero To Discuss Contract After Season

The Arizona Diamondbacks are trying to lock up Miguel Montero, but it looks as if the sides are too far off to reach an amiable solution before the season. So both sides will have to wait until after the season to come to an agreement.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic filed this report.

"Over the last two or three weeks, we've been working at it with Miggy and his side," Towers said. "We weren't able to find any common ground. It was a good process. These things happen in baseball. This doesn't mean it's the end of the world. My desire, as well as Miggy's desire, with an important season coming up and our first game here on Saturday, is to kind of put it behind us until the end of the season. We'll address it at that point in time."


Montero had his best season last year, batting in 86 RBIs and 18 HRs along with hitting .282 for a batting average, a .351 OBP and a .469 slugging percentage, which helped him make the All-Star Game. Great catchers are always important to hold onto, although this is only the first season Montero has performed at an All-Star level. It makes sense for the D-Backs to be cautious about signing him to the best possible deal until they get another year of Montero and know what they're dealing with.
