The Mets will call on Triple-A starter Rafael Montero to pitch on Tuesday, in place of Jacob deGrom, according to beat reporter Adam Rubin (ESPN NY, August 11).
Terry Collins said on Monday morning that if deGrom’s injury holds him out of only one start, the team could use Buddy Carlyle for a spot start.
Montero was 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA, including 17 strike outs in 20 innings, spanning four starts earlier this season for the Mets.
DeGrom was scratched from Tuesday’s start with shoulder soreness. He will be seen by doctors on Monday in New York (MetsBlog, August 10).
