Muno was called up after Sunday's game and will be immediately inserted into the lineup at third base. Normally a second baseman, Muno has seen 46 appearances at third base in the minors, with 20 coming this season.
Muno has hit .280/.354/.400 in 100 at-bats with Triple-A Las Vegas. His only other start with the Mets came in late April when he served as the designated hitter in an American League park.
The Mets are heavy favorites (-165) at home on Monday, per VegasInsider.com.
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.
