Miguel Angel Montero (born July 9, 1983, in Caracas, Venezuela) is a Major League Baseball catcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Baseball career

Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2001, Montero showed an ability to hit for average and power in the minors, hitting .307 with 43 home runs in 2005 and 2006.

He made his major league debut on September 6, 2006, against the Florida Marlins.

In 2007 and 2008, Montero platooned with Chris Snyder at the catching position for the D-Backs. He was the subject of trade talks between the D-Backs and the Boston Red Sox.

2009 Season

Montero began the 2009 season slowly, hitting just three home runs and having just a .200 batting average through the first two months. However, when Chris Snyder was put on the disabled list in June, Montero's playing time increased markedly. Since June 17, Montero has lead all catchers in the Major Leagues with a .836 OPS, six home runs (for a total of 9), and 20 RBIs (bringing his season total to 30) to go along with an impressive .295 batting average.
