RAFAEL MONTERO RUMORS

New York Mets: Leathersich promoted, Montero back to Vegas

This is now Montero’s second demotion in the first month of the season. He originally made the team as a reliever before being demoted in order to...

Will Rafael Montero be on the roster in 2015?

Rafael Montero signed very late compared to most players out of the Dominican Republic. Most kids sign around the age of 16 or 17, but Montero did not sign with the Mets until he was 20 years old. In his first year with the Mets organization he posted a 5-4 record to a tune of a 2.15 ERA. After 2011 he was on a few top prospect lists, but was not many, partially due to how late...

Rafael Montero earns the right to keep pitching as a starter

Earlier this month, Terry Collins announced that Rafael Montero would get at least one more start in the majors this year.

Don’t forget to include Rafael Montero in the dream rotation

Tuesday night I missed the first two innings of the game against the Nationals, meaning Zack Wheeler’s worst was already behind him. It was not a great game by any stretch of the imagination, yet Wheeler battled and turned in another fine performance if judged only by the final results. Wheeler and Jacob deGrom have given the Mets two pitchers who consistently give the Mets...

Scratch that. Both of the organization’s prized righthanders – one known for a blazing fastball and wicked...
