"When you point fingers you're a selfish player. We have another catcher that throws everyone out."
Less than 24 hours later, Montero was designated for assignment.
It was an awesome ride. Winning the World Series was simply fantastic. Thank you to my teammates - good luck to everyone of you.— Miguel Montero (@miggymont26) June 28, 2017
The Cubs have decided to call up Triple-A catcher Victor Caratini to replace Montero, according to ESPN's Buster Olney.
The Nats may have literally run Montero out of Chicago.
