C Miguel Montero suffered a torn meniscus when he made an awkward step while trying to avoid a tag Saturday night, and he is to undergo another MRI on Monday to check for possible ligament damage. Surgery will be performed as soon as the extent of the damage is known. He was placed on the 15-day DL. The recovery time for a professional who has had arthroscopic surgery to repair torn meniscus is four to eight weeks, according to the website for the Orthopedic Center of St. Louis. "That (meniscus) would be the best scenario for him," D-Backs manager A.J. Hinch said. "We want to rule out any other problem with any other lettered ligament. The sky's not falling. We'll be OK."
Montero, who made his first Opening Day start this season after a career year in 2009, was attempting to beat Pittsburgh lefty Zach Duke to first base after hitting a slow roller toward the bag at first. "I was running fine. I never slowed down," Montero said. "Actually, I was kind of trying to run him over. I tried to speed up and I felt something pop. That's when I slowed down. I knew there was something wrong. I couldn't sleep (Saturday) night -- not because of the pain but because I was thinking about it. Hopefully I'll be fine and be back as soon as I can." Montero, 26, had career highs in every offensive category last season after replacing catcher Chris Snyder (back) in the starting lineup in mid-June. Montero hit .294 with 16 homers and 59 RBI.
Snyder will become the starter, and catcher John Hester was recalled from Class AAA Reno to fill the roster.

Doctors have ruled out ligament damage in Miguel Montero's right knee and expect him to miss only four-to-six weeks.
The catcher was examined Tuesday by Los Angeles-based Dr. Lewis Yocum and received the promising news. For those that dropped Montero thinking he might be out all year, it's probably time to pick him back up and store him on the disabled list. Chris Snyder will continue to start in Arizona for the next month or so and is a fine emergency option in mixed leagues.
