New York Yankees Breaking News: Jesus Montero To Join Yankees In Boston On Thursday

Montero Jesus is Coming! After months of anticipation, New York Yankees prospect Jesus Montero is expected to get the call-up to the Major Leagues. The main question right now is if the catcher will be eligible to play in the playoffs with the team in October. Many believe that he will be a part of the team due to injuries to other prospects like Ramiro Pena. He has a chance to prove himself as the starting designated hitter over Jorge Posada in the line-up.

There were plenty of trades that the Yankees could have made with Jesus Montero as the centerpiece and the next few days he will be available to show his worth on the field. Manager Joe Girardi said that he has no problem with using Montero as the team's catcher behind the plate or even just hit in the line-up as the designated hitter. 

Russell Martin is recovering from a minor thumb injury that has kept him out the line-up against the Red Sox in game one of the series. Skipper Joe Girardi expects to have him back behind the plate on Thursday. Alex Rodriguez had a similar injury, but has been out for a longer time and will not be expected back until the Yankees leave Boston. This means that if Montero plays on Thursday, he will be the designated hitter. 

According to the New York Post's Joel Sherman, Jesus Montero to the Yankees seems final since he is no longer with the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees in Allentown. He has been cleared to leave the team and get promoted tomorrow. 

It may be less than 24 hours early, but on behalf of Bombers' Banter: Welcome to the Yankees, Jesus!
