Mets prospect Rafael Montero will get a late season start, manager Terry Collins told reporters on Monday (Rubin, Sept. 1).
The start is expected to come later this month. The Mets won’t got to a six-man rotation, something the organization considered doing. The Mets will use Montero when there is a six-day stretch without an off-day. The Mets want to keep their five starters on regular rest throughout September.
Montero came up early in the season is was 0-3 with a 5.23 ERA in six starts, seven appearances.
