2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2015

Monteroís blazing quick ascent through the minors suggested a level of polish that couldíve yielded the season that unheralded teammate Jacob deGrom ended up having as the NLís Rookie of the Year. It would have no doubt been a best-case scenario, but the ability to limit walks, stifle home runs, and miss plenty of bats with average or above stuff across the board is what Montero was all about in the minors. He got a couple chances with the Mets, but two of those three skills werenít present. He walked batters in all 10 of his starts including more than one in eight of them and he allowed homers in each of his first five starts, resulting in a 1.6 HR/9 when it was all said and done. With minor league numbers in line with his past, the MLB struggles suggest more of a learning curve issue as opposed to any sort of skills erosion. The incredible depth of the Mets' pitching could make it tough to find time in 2015 or even make him someone they look to move for some hitting.

2014

Montero continued his rapid rise in the Mets' organization, blowing through Double-A Binghamton to pitch a half-season at Triple-A Las Vegas. Two of Montero's hallmarks are his control and limiting home runs, and each were on full display last year, as he posted a 4.49 K/BB ratio and gave up just six home runs in 155.1 innings. Montero has a low-90s fastball, along with a low-80s slider and changeup, and he can paint the black with each of those three pitches. He likely will open 2014 back with the 51s, but like fellow prospect Noah Syndergaard, he should hit New York by mid-season and profiles to be a future No. 3 starter.
