Rafael Montero gets first career win
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/10/14) Mets pitcher Rafael Montero tossed a strong start Wednesday against the Rockies.
Montero allowed three hits over 5 1/3 scoreless innings. He struck out seven and walked four during the outing. Walks were clearly an issue for Montero, and kept him from pitching deep into the game. He was pulled after throwing 106 pitches during the sixth inning. Though he departed with two men on base, the Mets were able to get out of the jam, keeping Montero’s stat line clean.
With the win, Montero improved to 1-3. He’ll take on the Marlins in his next start.
Rafael Montero spot start set for Wednesday
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(9/8/14) Mets starting pitcher Rafael Montero, who was expected to make a spot start following his promotion from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier this month, is scheduled to make it Wednesday against the Rockies, pushing everyone else back a day. He's not expected to join the rotation full time.
Montero, a rookie, has a 5.24 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in seven appearances, including six starts.
Rafael Montero called up; will get a spot start
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(9/6/14) Mets pitcher Rafael Montero has been promoted for the final few weeks of the season, after ending his campaign at Triple-A Las Vegas.
The Mets recalled Montero Saturday, and manager Terry Collins told ESPN.com he expects to get him at least one spot start, though Montero is not expected to join the rotation full time at any point.
Montero posted a 5.23 ERA in 32 2/3 innings of work over seven appearances earlier in the season. He finished the Triple-A season with a 3.60 ERA in 80 innings, with 80 strikeouts.
Rafael Montero expected to make a start this month
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/1/14) Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters that pitcher Rafael Montero will likely make a start with the big-league club at some point this month, ESPN New York reports. Montero made six starts this season already with the Mets. He owns a 5.23 ERA over 32 2/3 innings of work in the majors.
Rafael Montero demoted to Las Vegas
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/23/14) The Mets have disaptched rookie right hander Rafael Montero to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room on the roster for Jacob deGrom.
Montero struggled to find consistency in the rotation. He managed three quality starts, but was pounded for 13 runs in 13 innings in his other three starts combined.
|Rafael Montero hasn't enamored scouts with his skill set, but everywhere he's gone, he's dominated. The streak looked like it would end with his promotion to Triple-A Las Vegas about midway through last season. After nine starts, he had a 4.50 ERA and 1.55 WHIP, his middle-of-the-road stuff seemingly exposed by the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League. But he got the last laugh, compiling a 1.61 ERA and 0.94 WHIP over his final seven starts -- numbers that are all the more impressive when you consider the environment. The key to his success is control. He can spot the ball as well as anyone, issuing 1.7 walks per nine innings over three minor-league seasons. And though his stuff isn't exactly electric, he's no soft-tosser, relying on location and pitch selection to get the most out of his low-90s fastball. Montero is an unconventional prospect in sort of the Kris Medlen mold. Fantasy owners would take another one of those. Though the Mets blocked his shot at a rotation spot with their signing of Bartolo Colon this offseason, they seem to appreciate his skill set. Superior prospect Noah Syndergaard is in line to debut this summer, but most likely, the Mets will have incorporated both by season's end.
