Mets Farm Report: Montero and Fulmer Falter, Nimmo and Rivera Rake

Montero Walks It Out

Don’t look now, but Rafael Montero has had a 3-game string of not-so-uplifting starts.  After only 9 pitches to get 2 outs in the first inning, Montero lost that pinpoint control we all rave about. He  proceeded to give up a single, a run-scoring double to Mike Jacobs, and then a two-run homer to Nick Evans, to former Mets prospects. Montero then allowed another single before...

We’re tracking prospects that are the most likely to make an impact this year.

The prospect of a sixth consecutive losing season has been a subject that has stirred much debate on this site and others...

Thor Allows Three Earned Runs, Looked Mortal Last Night

All things considered, it wasn’t an awful start for Noah Syndergaard, but it’s sure going to be something for people to whine about. Over five innings, Syndergaard gave up six hits, four runs (three earned), walked two, and struck out two while throwing 91 pitches – 61 of them for strikes. The ground outs to fly outs ratio was a nice sight at 8:3 and he was able to limit the...

Peepin’ Prospects: Rafael Montero

Rafael Montero | RHP, Mets | Born:  10/17/1990 The assumption around foresighted fantasy circles is that Mets ace-in-the-making, Noah Syndergaard, will force his way into the big league rotation at some point before this year's All-Star break.  It's not a poor assumption to make -- Syndergaard is loaded with size and stuff and athleticism, and he baffled Double-A hitters...

My Thoughts On Montero To The Bullpen

  With the news that closer Bobby Parnell will miss the rest of the season after deciding to have Tommy John surgery, I received a couple of emails asking me if this could pave the way for the MLB debut of pitching prospect Rafael Montero. The 23-year old control artist had a stellar season debut for Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, tossing six scoreless innings, allowing just four...

Rafael Montero continues to defy MLB betting lines

After three games, the starting pitchers for the Mets have a 4.82 ERA, having allowed 10 ER in 18.2 IP. While that’s still less than half the ERA of the bullpen, it’s nowhere near what many hoped from out of the group that was expected to carry the 2014 club. While it’s still weeks away from being a legitimate cause for concern – recall that the 2013 club had Dillon Gee...

Mets fans are hoping that all this waiting is going to payoff, and are praying it pays off soon. Will Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey be 2015′s...
