Unfortunately, Minor League Splits has shut down and I could only get data on Montero's limited September call up. The sight is encouraging, and while we are working with a very small sample size, it's not as if Montero doesn't have a minor league track record of opposite field power. So let's add an overlay of SafeCo and see just how well Montero's bat might play in Seattle.
It's hard not to feel encouraged. Montero has a great chance to succeed even as a right handed hitter because of his opposite field power. My only cause for concern is that all three opposite field homers came in Yankee Stadium which has a large jet stream out to right field. Is it that big of a concern? That I honestly don't know, but I'd like to think it's not. The sample is tiny, but very encouraging. Montero has 80 games to play at SafeCo field in 2012, but if his opposite field power plays like it did in his limited 18 game call-up, then it shouldn't matter where he plays, Jesus Montero is going to hit the ball out.
