Miguel Montero, Diamondbacks: For one reason or another, Montero can't seem to hit fly balls with any consistency this year. That's an awfully bad sign for a power hitter, and it has manifested itself in a .230/.319/.348 slash line. In reality, his power hasn't fallen off at all. His HR/FB ratio is 11.8 percent this year, a slight uptick from last year's 11.6 percent. However, his fly-ball rate is just 30.8 percent. Last year, it was 36 percent. At this point, it's hard to believe that he'll turn it around in 2013.
