Montero played 109 games at Triple-A prior to being called up on September 1 and got into 18 more games for the Yankees down the stretch, totaling 532 plate appearances overall.
He caught 91 of those 127 games, although Montero was behind the plate just three times in five weeks following his promotion to the majors.
He’s in line to be the Yankees’ regular designated hitter as a 22-year-old rookie next season after going 20-for-61 (.328) with four homers, four doubles, and seven walks in his debut.
