Rafael Montero to open year in Triple-A rotation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/14) The Mets announced Tuesday pitcher Rafael Montero, who was competing for a spot in the team's rotation, was reassigned to minor-league camp. Mets manager Terry Collins discussed over the weekend about keeping Montero as a reliever, but he will now open the year in the rotation at Triple-A Las Vegas, per MLB.com.
Rafael Montero having productive spring campaign
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/11/14) Mets starting pitcher Rafael Montero, who is considered a dark-horse candidate for the final spot in the team's rotation, had another strong outing Tuesday against the Cardinals. Montero pitched in relief of Jonathon Niese, allowing one run on one hit and one walk in two innings, while striking out one.

Montero has allowed two runs (one earned) in six innings this spring (1.50 ERA). He has allowed just two hits and one walk, while striking out four.

Rafael Montero, Jacob deGrom impress in spring debuts
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/14) Mets pitchers Rafael Montero and Jacob deGrom each pitched two perfect innings in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Nationals, with Montero striking out two and deGrom striking out four.

"I only threw two offspeed pitches," deGrom told MLB.com after the game. "I was locating my fastball really well. That was the biggest key to those two innings to me."

Looking to win a rotation spot this spring, deGrom made a quick rise through the minors last season, going 7-7 with a 4.51 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 120:46 K:BB ratio in 147 2/3 innings across three levels.

Montero will likely be a midseason callup for the Mets but could break camp with the team if he impresses this spring. He went 12-7 with a 2.78 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 150:35 K:BB ratio in 155 1/3 innings between Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Las Vegas last season.

Rafael Montero likely to be a midseason callup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/14) While Mets starting pitcher prospect Rafael Montero has his sights set on winning a spot in the rotation this spring, pitching coach Dan Warthen told The Star-Ledger the more likely scenario is Montero joining the rotation in the middle of the season.

"A guy that we look to see in the big leagues very soon," Warthen said.

Montero has developed into one of the team's top pitching prospects, but he is mostly a fastball-slider pitcher and has some areas he needs to improve before joining the major-league rotation.

"He’s moved up so quickly," Triple-A Las Vegas pitching coach Frank Viola said. "He just needs to learn a little bit more consistency out of his breaking ball and his changeup. He’s opened up so many eyes and I think he’s going to get better and better."

Rafael Montero has sights set on winning rotation spot
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/3/14) Mets prospect Rafael Montero has his sights set on winning the final spot in the team's rotation this spring.

"The goal is to go and make the team," Montero told The Star-Ledger. "But I don’t control that. (General manager) Sandy Alderson and (manager) Terry Collins control that. I’ll go wherever they send me, to Triple-A or the majors, without a problem."

There's some concern long-term that Montero might not have the frame (6-0, 170 pounds) to handle a starter's workload in the majors. However, he's become one of the team's top pitching prospects, and the Mets seem to think he can develop into a regular in the rotation.

"I think he can handle (being a starter)," Mets' director of Latin American operations Juan Henderson said. "He’s got the build and a few good pitches, plus he’s a strike thrower. I think he can handle it. And he’s got a big heart. He’s a competitor."
