D’Backs catcher Miguel Montero cut off extension talks with the Arizona front office earlier this spring.
And it sounds like they might never resume.
According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, Montero “is said to be looking for a deal similar to Victor Martinez‘s $52-million, four-year contract (with the Tigers), and the chances for him to make a deal with Arizona appear slim under those conditions.”
Also hurting the Snakes’ cause is the recent five-year, $75 million extension struck between the Cardinals and Yadier Molina.
Montero, 28, posted a .282/.351/.469 batting line with 18 home runs and 86 RBI in 140 games last season. He’ll earn $5.9 million in 2012 before hitting the free agent market five days after the World Series.

He posted a 3.33 ERA in 70 appearances for the Padres in a limited role, logging a total of just 54 innings with a 51/33 K/BB ratio.
