Blue Jays' Montero returns to face Cubs

CHICAGO -- There will be a familiar face peeking out of the visitor's dugout as the Toronto Blue Jays make a rare visit to Wrigley Field for a three-game weekend series with the Chicago Cubs beginning Friday afternoon.

Blue Jays catcher Miguel Montero, who won a World Series ring last year with the Cubs before leaving under fire after he criticized pitcher Jake Arrieta in June, will be on hand after rejoining Toronto this week following a stint on the disabled list.

Now he could face Arrieta on Friday in the series opener.
