2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: The Twins signed Montesino in 2012 out of the Dominican Republic. He spent 2013 in the DSL before moving up to the GCL in 2014. In that season, he hit .165/.233/.220 (.454). He did steal eight bases. He played all around the diamond, playing every position but pitcher and catcher during the season. He’s listed at 5-10 (he’s probably not) and 170 pounds (nope). He has a lot of speed, well above average. He is a pretty good glove around the diamond. He’s still young and raw and has a lot of room to grow.
