Mets prospect Rafael Montero may be headed to bullpen
|(3/25/15) Mets pitching prospect Rafael Montero most likely punched his ticket to make the big club Wednesday with a solid four-inning start against the Yankees.|
In his first start of the spring, Montero allowed one earned run, three hits and struck out four.
Montero officially remains in competition with Dillon Gee for the rotation's fifth spot, but it appears he'll be added to the Mets bullpen when the season begins.
When asked where Montero fits into the Mets' pitching staff, manager Terry Collins said "On the team - somewhere."
Montero suggested he is fine with any role.
"[In the] minor leagues I was a starting pitcher," Montero said through an interpreter. "Now, in the big leagues, I'm ready to pitch ... In the minor leagues, I want to start. That's in the minor leagues. But here in the big leagues that's their decision."
Montero has pitched nine innings in the spring so far, posting a 4.00 ERA with nine hits and eight strike outs.
Mets' Dillon Gee hasn't allowed a run in last two spring starts

|(3/24/15) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee, who is competing with Rafael Montero for the final spot in the rotation, tossed four scoreless innings during Tuesday's spring game against the Astros. He allowed four hits and one walk, while striking out one.
Gee, who is likely to replace Zack Wheeler in the rotation, has tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings over his last two starts, lowering his spring ERA to 2.45 in 14 2/3 innings.
Gee said he threw only fastballs and changeups the first time through the lineup at the request of pitching coach Dan Warthen.
“I’m a sinker guy. I like to use the defense. So it was nice to get a lot of groundballs,” Gee said, per ESPN. “Me and Dan were talking. I was upset about 70 pitches through four innings. But he said, ‘Remember, I kind of limited you to fastball-changeup the first time through the order. You might have been able to put somebody away faster if you were using everything.’
“We were just working on seeing how good of a pitcher I could be with two pitches the first time through and not break out the other stuff.”
Mets' Dan Warthen: Final spot down to Dillon Gee, Rafael Montero

|(3/19/15) Though it appears as if Dillon Gee is destined to take Zack Wheeler's spot in the starting rotation, Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen told reporters the final spot is still up for grabs between Gee and Rafael Montero, according to NJ.com.
"I think it's still a competition between Montero and Gee," Warthen said. "They're both quality pitchers, I don't think we're going to hamstrung by either one of them."
Gee threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings in a split-squad game against the Astros. He has a 3.38 ERA through four spring outings (two starts). Montero allowed one run on two hits over 3 2/3 innings of work against Houston on Thursday. He has a 5.40 ERA through two outings (five innings) this spring.
Mets' Dillon Gee posts 3 2/3 scoreless innings in split-squad game

|(3/19/15) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee, will replace Zack Wheeler in the starting rotation, threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings in a split-squad game against the Astros in Port St. Lucie, Fla., per ESPN. The Mets are stretching out Gee, and had him log 47 pitches on Thursday. He is scheduled to throw five innings and 65 pitches in his next outing.
"I was almost a little nervous for today -- just having to start again," Gee said. "It's exciting. And I get adrenaline every time I get to do something I really love to do. It was nice. I tried to stay within myself and work on things and take it for what it was, but it was exciting to get back out there and do what I like to do."
Mets' Dillon Gee will start a spring game on Thursday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee told reporters he was informed by pitching coach Dan Warthen that he would be stretched out for the final spot in the rotation, according to the New York Post. He will start a game on Thursday.
"I guess that was kind of his way of saying that I’m going to start until we see something else going on," Gee said. "I don't know."
Gee will replace Zack Wheeler in the starting rotation, after he was diagnosed with a fully torn UCL, and is likely facing Tommy John surgery.
"I told Zack this yesterday. I said, 'I would rather be pitching in the bullpen than have this happen to you,'" Gee said. "And I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I hope that at this point now, I can just help the team in that regard."
|2014 summary: The Mets rewarded Dillon Gee, who had a career year in 2013, with the opening day start, but as the season progressed, he was overshadowed by the other members of the team's rotation. Gee had some success early in the year, going 3-1 with a 2.73 ERA over his first eight starts even though he was not getting many swings and misses. But then he spent nearly two months on the disabled list with a lat injury, and when he returned, he proceeded to cough up 12 home runs over 84 2/3 innings. That parade of gopher balls blew up his ERA to 4.78 over that stretch, and Gee finished with a 7-8 record.|
Playing time status: Gee was looking like the odd man out of the Mets' crowded rotation situation, but then Zack Wheeler succumbed to Tommy John surgery, creating an opening, at least temporarily. The Mets will need to clear a spot for top prospect Noah Syndergaard eventually, but with Bartolo Colon and Jonathon Niese also in their starting rotation, Gee may not be the path of least resistance.
2015 outlook: Though Gee has struggled to get strikeouts the past two seasons, he hasn't suffered a significant loss of velocity, so perhaps a rebound is in order. However, his upside isn't all that high, so there's no need to gamble a late-round pick in standard mixed leagues on the chance that he improves. Leave him for deeper leagues.
