• May Prospect of the Month: Mark Montgomery

    Last month, Charleston outfielder Tyler Austin was the run away choice for our Prospect of the Month feature. This month, there was no such clear winner, but there was also no shortage of good candidates for the distinction. At Charleston, Austin continues to swing a hot bat, while Angelo Gumbs, Dante Bichette Jr., and Gary Sanchez also continue to do damage with the lumber. In the upper levels of the minors, Corban Jospeh did nothing but hit for Double-A Trenton before earning a promotion to Triple-A at the end of the month. At Triple-A, Ronnier Mustelier has been one of the big pleasant surprises of the season, and though he’s already 27, he’s working himself into the territory of being a real, if fringey, prospect. In the end, however, we decided to bestow this month’s honor on Tampa reliever and strikeout artist Mark Montgomery.
