Whenever the Yankees discuss trade packages, one name that does not come up at any time is the name of Jesus. Jesus Montero, that is.

Montero is the number one ranked player in the Yankees’ farm system and number five overall in all of the minor leagues and has been noted as the most effective hitter in Triple A. But his defense isn’t up to what is expected in the majors. Anthony McCarron’s article from yesterday in the Daily News offers perspective on Montero’s focus on his defense this offseason.

Montero could be up in the majors as early as this year, and that will be amazing for a 20-year old who is probably going to be Jorge Posada’s heir apparent.
