The continued trade with Javier brought current New York Mets farmhand Alex Cintron and current Oriole farmhand Lou Montanez to me. Montanez was an unexpected surprise as he was not a discussed part of the trade. He was needed for the collection so is welcomed with open arms, or nine pocket sheets.
Alex Cintron 2009 Topps #393
Cintron played 61 games for the Birds in 2008, rotating between first, second and third base. He had one of his better seasons for average, but had no power numbers to speak of. He filled a lot of gaps in the infield and was serviceable in that role. Over the last two years he has bounced around to the Nationals, Mariners and currently the Mets in a similar role.
Lou Montanez 2009 Topps #509
Lou has popped in an out of the majors for the last three seasons. This season he has spent time at A, AA, AAA and the big league levels. His numbers have been lackluster and with the crowded outfield in the majors a full time position may be too much to ask. Outfield is one of the few areas the Orioles are stacked and Montanez may be a minor league staple for a few years.
