Miguel Montero is expected to rejoin the Arizona Diamondbacks today. The newly-extended Diamondbacks' catcher had missed time due a splinter in his thumb. The injury prevented him from swinging the bat like he normally would.
According to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, Montero should be back in the lineup today.

Montero signed a six-year contract extension in May of last year. The Diamondbacks are pleased with how he has progressed and how he has produced. Montero has spent his entire career with Arizona after being signed as an amateur free agent in 2001.
Montero has played in seven Major League seasons. In that time, he has hit .275/.351/.448. He has shown decent power, but his true value is in his ability to make contact at the plate and call a game behind the plate. Montero made his sole All-Star appearance in 2011.
