Miguel Montero to have knee surgery

The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed catcher Miguel Montero, who will require knee surgery, on the 15-day disabled list (DL), per Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic.

Montero has a torn meniscus and additional tests will be performed to verify whether there is any additional damage to the knee.

"I don't think it's fair to throw out too many timetables until we get the final tests on Monday," [manager A.J.] Hinch said.

In four games, Montero was batting .500 (6-for-12) with three runs batted in. While he is out, Chris Snyder will take his place.

Snyder, who is 1-for-6 this season, hit a career-high 16 home runs with 64 runs batted in during the 2008 season.
