Montero fired two shutout innings during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins, allowing two hits and striking out three.

With a large portion of the Mets' bullpen away at the WBC, Montero's been getting plenty of work this spring and looked dominant at times, posting a 2.70 ERA and 20:7 K:BB through 13.1 innings. His elevated walk rate remains a concern, but with the team looking for a long reliever, the 25-year-old's strikeout prowess may just win him the job.
