Mariners option struggling Montero to Tacoma

The Mariners Wednesday optioned INF Jesus Montero to the AAA Tacoma Rainiers ahead of the final three-game series against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park Wednesday night. Montero has just two hits in his last 35 at-bats.

In 25 games in his second stint with Seattle this season, the 25-year-old Montero hit .200 (15-for-75) with five runs, five doubles, two home runs and nine RBIs. In his first 14 contests, he hit .325 with four runs, four doubles, two home runs and nine RBIs, but then went into the 2-for-35 dive that punched his ticket back to Tacoma.

In 93 games with Tacoma this season, Montero hit .346 with 64 runs, 17 doubles, six triples, 16 home runs and 75 RBIs with a .938 OPS.

The Mariners send LHP Taijuan Walker (10-7, 4.53) to the mound Wednesday night to face RHP Scott Kazmir (7-9, 2.45). The Mariners are off Thursday and begin a three-game series in Oakland Friday.

    Too many 1B/OF/DH types and none will get regular playing time. At this point Montero is best as a DH. He’s shown some promise as a 1B but Trumbo and Morrison have more experience there. Cruz really should be the full time DH but he doesn’t seem to want to be there. He’s okay in the OF but speed and athleticism is needed in the Safeco Field OF. At best he should be moved to LF or at 1B. I doubt Trumbo and Morrison will be back next season though Trumbo is somewhat intriguing. I’d rather see Montero get his form back that he had as a Yankee prospect and then see if anyone is interested in him.
