When former Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Russell Martin signed a multi-year deal with the Toronto Blue Jays last week, the Dodgers' reported interest in a potential reunion fell flat.
However, it appears the Dodgers are now looking inside the division for catching help, with a possible trade for Arizona Diamondbacks backstop Miguel Montero now on the table.
Here's Nick Piecoro of AZCentral Sports with the scoop:
The Diamondbacks continue to have dialogue with other clubs on a variety of players, including catcher Miguel Montero . . . Among the teams the Diamondbacks have spoken to about Montero are the Chicago Cubs, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox.
Piecoro says that while talks are ongoing, they aren't exactly heated at the moment. The Dodgers, however, have the farm system to get things smoking sooner rather than later.
The 31-year-old Montero posted a line of .243/.329/.370 while putting on the catching gear for 131 games last year. Those offensive numbers are off that of his peak years, so it's possible LA could see a bit of bounce-back potential in the veteran catcher.
