not much trade value in this league for J Montero. I would probably pick up one of these pitchers:

Ryu
J Hammel
Wandy Rodriguez
Paul Maholm

There are too many C's so it's unlikely you get anything for Montero. It's safe to drop him. I'd also consider dumping Gyorko in a 10-team league, but I prefer to have more bench arms vs bats.

It depends on who your catchers are. I like to carry two catchers because of their off days and such. It really just depends on how much bench depth you have and how many bench spots your league allows. Right now I carry two catchers, Napoli and Perez. But that is also because Napoli has 1B eligibility, plus its a keeper league, so I can't afford to let Perez go.

If you are looking for a decent 2nd catcher down the road keep an eye on Grandal, he has awhile to go on his suspension though.

J. Montero just hasn't put up the numbers to validate a spot on the bench. I've played this game too and In your situation I'd just drop him if there's a halfway serviceable P avail

Montero is droppable in this scenario. I would add Maholm above the other options.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
