Felix. He apparently dosen't like Montero as a catcher, according to an earlier post, and who knows how he feels about Jaso.
That quote didn't come from Felix. It wasn't even based on conversations with Felix or someone with inside knowledge. The comment was made by Steve Phillips, talking head for ESPN, bloviating that Felix wouldn't stay in Seattle if he had to pitch to Jesus. There was nothing to back that up. Just Phillip's opinion of Jesus' defensive skills.
In reality, Felix has pitched four games with Jesus as his catcher. He won two of them, giving up one run and five hits total. He also lost two of them in pretty bad fashion. If you're going to assume Felix won't pitch to Montero because of those two games, you also have to assume he won't pitch to Olivo due to the games (like April 7) where Felix couldn't find his pitches and gave up a bunch of runs.
Felix may or may not have a preference for catchers, but I certainly wouldn't take Phillips' opinion as proof of it.
