A New Perspective On Old History
A-Rod plays mentor to Montero
A-Rod took his two days in Scranton with the Triple-A Yankees as an opportunity to mentor [Jesus Montero]. He took him into the indoor batting cage Wednesday afternoon and worked with him on his swing, his approach and about making the next step for about 20 minutes.
“He has been great with all the guys, but really taken Monty under his wing,” Wynegar said. “He is trying to show him the work it takes at the major league level. And Monty is just absorbing it all.”
Rodriguez’s tenure as a tutor was over after he was pulled from the game in the eighth inning Wednesday night and headed for Minnesota, but he told Montero he’d like to reconnect.
“We talked about hopefully getting together this winter in Miami, working out with Kevin Long and Butch and whoever wants to come down to Miami and have a little bit of a winter hitting camp,” Rodriguez said.
