Montero (5-10) allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks with six strikeouts but lasted just 4.2 innings and took the loss Friday against Atlanta.

Montero has completed the sixth inning just once in his past six starts now, a stretch in which he owns a 4.03 ERA despite a brutal 1.62 WHIP over 29 innings. Control has been a major issue for Montero all year long, as he has now walked 59 batters in just 106.1 innings. Montero can be nasty, but until he reins in his control there is only so far he can go.
