So if you are looking for this year go with Santana or Posey. If you can wait another year, Montero has a chance to be a top power hitter. Many people don't think he can stay at C but I think the Yankees will do everything they can to keep him there.

I dont think that you would see a situation where Montero winds up as an everyday DH that catches occasionally for a couple of reasons.
1. If Montero is DH'ing, then the Yankees would still have to carry a backup catcher in case the starting catcher is injured in a game that Montero is DHing. That backup catcher would almost certainly be vastly superior to Montero defensively, and on days that the starter needs rest, they would probably go with the guy that is better defensively.
2. If Montero's defense is already questionable, it is only going to deteriorate if he is an everyday DH that catches on occasion. It makes no sense for the Yanks to put him in the lineup at catcher once a week and watch him try to work the rust off in games.
