Diamondbacks-catcher
Arizona Diamondbacks' catcher Miguel Montero, who has been having nagging lower back issues for the past week, was placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to July 29. As reported by Dave Sessions of MLB.com, "Montero did not play in the final two games of Arizona's series at San Diego, and he was out of the starting lineup for four consecutive games from July 23-26." "Montero will see a back specialist in Arizona on Friday morning and could receive an epidural injection, D-backs GM Kevin Towers said Thursday. Montero had an MRI last week that showed a bulging disk, Towers said." Tuffy Gosewisch, a 29 year old career Minor Leaguer, made his Major League debut in place of Montero. Gosewisch made the most of his first start, getting his first Major League hit and went 1 for 3 in the Diamondbacks 7-1 loss against the Rangers. Montero hit .286 with 15 home runs and 88 runs batted in last season.   This season, he has struggled to a .228 average with 9 home runs and 34 runs batted in. For his career, Montero has a .268 batting average with 82 home runs in 746 games.
