Rafael Montero Newsbeat

New York Mets still open to trading Dillon Gee despite Zack Wheeler injury - ESPN New York

The Mets like Montero better. Unless someone steps up and gives them something for him, though, the Mets are starting Gee and putting Montero in the pen. When is the MLBPA filing a grievance?

Rafael Montero has earned roster spot

Montero officially remains in a competition with Dillon Gee for the fifth starter’s job. However, Mets officials acknowledge Gee is highly likely to get the rotation nod, and Montero likely is ticketed for relief at the major league level to begin the season.

Asked where Montero fits in, Collins said Wednesday: “On the team—somewhere.”

Montero suggested he is fine with any role.

“Minor leagues I was a starting pitcher,” Montero said through an interpreter. “Now, in the big leagues, I’m ready to pitch. … In the minor leagues, I want to start. That’s in the minor leagues. But here in the big leagues that’s their decision.”

General manager Sandy Alderson has said that Montero is still viewed by the organization as a starting pitcher long term. Alderson added that it is senseless to have Montero spend a third season at Triple-A Las Vegas.
