Montero Drawing Interest

According to Jack Magruder of the East Valley Tribune, D'Backs catcher Miguel Montero is a popular name in trade discussions.  He may be traded to address the team's second base vacancy.  Mark Loretta and Adam Kennedy, who are in the $4MM or less range, were deemed too expensive.

Montero, 25, hit .255/.330/.435 in 207 plate appearances this year.  He's under team control through 2012.  Magruder suggests the Red Sox, Tigers, Reds, Astros, and Brewers as possible matches.  Some of those clubs do have decent second base prospects.

Magruder adds that the D'Backs have received inquiries on Eric Byrnes, but don't see a contract swap that'd make sense.
