Montero was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday.

The 26-year-old has been less than stellar out of the Mets' bullpen this season, as he's currently sporting a 9.45 ERA and 3.60 WHIP in six appearances. With Jeurys Familia returning from the restricted list Thursday, Montero will head back to the minors to get some more work in.
