Red Sox 'intensifying talks' for Miguel Montero

Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports that:

According to one baseball source, the team has been intensifying talks with the Arizona Diamondbacks concerning 25-year-old catcher Miguel Montero. The Red Sox still believe that the price for gifted Texas Rangers catcher Jarrod Saltalamachia is too high because it still includes pitcher Clay Buchholz. The Diamondbacks are not believed to be asking for Buchholz, making a return package of pitching that could include Michael Bowden and/or Daniel Bard feasible.

Can anybody tell me more about Montero? All I know is that he's a promising prospect, but how's his defense and bat? 

The article also mentions that this potential trade would not preclude the Sox from signing Vartiek.  I think most people agree that he would have a positive influence on any young catcher while getting slightly less than half of the playing time.
