Earlier this morning, it was announced by GM Brian Cashman that Jesus Montero would not be participating in winter ball this offseason -

He wanted to, but he doesn't need the at-bats and with a catcher, you want to avoid risk. We want to keep him healthy.

Can't say I disagree with the decision. Montero, merely 21-years-old, will be working out with Alex Rodriguez in January to keep in great shape. I'm sure he'll be ready to go when pitchers and catchers report. It's widely assumed at this point that Montero will be the full-time backup catcher to "all-star" Russell Martin
