Montero will work primarily at first base for the time being, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
ROTOWIRE FANTASY ANALYSIS
GM Jack Zduriencik said Montero will do a little catching in camp this spring, but the 24-year-old will focus primarily on first base for now. It was an inevitability, given Montero's limitations behind the plate, but a 50-game suspension for his involvement in Biogenesis delayed the transition. Questions remain, however, as to whether Montero, a .258/.303/.396 career hitter, can make it at first in the major leagues.
