Luis Montanez. Minor League contract for $18,000/month. Agreement for Major League contract for $135,000. $507,000 in Majors. If not on Major League roster on June 1, player will be released if requested. Major League invitation to Spring Training.


$25,000 for 30 plate appearances as a pinch hitter.
I love it!!!

He’s got a better shot at getting 30 pinch-hit appearances that he does 30 starts, that’s for sure.

I hope he earns them all, especially the League Championship Series MVP.

Willis is 6 for 21 in his career as a pinch hitter, so I wouldn’t count on him getting 30 plate appearances in one year.

muleman, I wouldn’t even count on him getting 30 days on the ML roster. I’m betting on Savery or Diekman beating Willis out in the spring.

muleman, “6 for 21” happens be a .286 batting average. Why would that disqualify him as a pinch-hit option? If you are trying to state that it’s a small sample and therefore unreliable, I understand, but you seem to imply he sucks, which clearly isn’t true…..

I’m rooting for Dontrelle to turn things around, starting in spring training. I hope Dubee is able to figure out how to get the D-Train back on track.
