Muno, who went 1 for 6 in four games with the Mets in April, has hit .280/.354/.400 with one home run, 12 RBI and three stolen bases in 100 at-bats with Las Vegas. Monell was 1 for 16 with a double in his stint with the Mets and returns to a .397/.455/.638 line with four home runs and 15 RBI in 58 at-bats with Las Vegas.
Muno went 1 for 6 in four games for the Mets.
Muno, who is serving as the team's designated hitter and batting eighth, is making his first start of the season. He's 1 for 3 with a stolen base while serving as a pinch-hitter.
"I knew coming into the series that I was going to DH Danny Muno today," manager Terry Collins said. "And I really don't want to tell you why, because I don't want them to know why. But there's a reason why he's in there today."
The Mets are underdogs (+135) against their in-town rivals Sunday.
Muno, 26, batted .235 in six minor-league games this season. Montero allowed an unearned run in two-thirds of an inning against the Marlins on Thursday. He owns a 4.15 ERA in 4 1/3 innings.
Muno was expected to be with the team to begin the season had second baseman Daniel Murphy not been ready for Opening Day, but as he wasn't needed, he headed to Triple-A Las Vegas, where he went 4 for 17 with three walks and two stolen bases in his first six games. He'll likely share time at third base while David Wright is sidelined. The team did not announce a corresponding move.
