Montero had his contract selected from Triple-A Nashville on Monday. Montero will replace the injured Shawn Kelley (biceps) on the roster and in the bullpen. The 28-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery last year and hasn't pitched in the majors since 2017 as a result, though he owns a solid 3.44 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 31:2 K:BB across 18.1 minor-league innings this season.
Montero (elbow) has posted a 10.50 ERA with 10 strikeouts over six innings at Double-A Frisco this season. Montero was forced to miss the entire 2018 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery, though he was able to return to game action with the Rangers' Arizona League affiliate in mid-June and has since been coming out of the bullpen at Double-A. The right-hander doesn't appear to have found his groove just yet, but he'll likely need a considerate amount of time to get back up to speed after rehabbing for a year.
Montero (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Tuesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Montero missed the entire 2018 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in late March. The 28-year-old is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day, though a return date in May or June remains possible. Montero appeared in 34 games for the Mets in 2017 and posted a 5.52 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 114:67 K:BB over 119 innings.
Montero (elbow) was outrighted from the Mets' 40-man roster Friday and elected free agency, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Montero missed the entire 2018 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in late March. The right-hander will likely be limited during spring training, so securing a contract may prove a tad difficult in the coming months. Across 34 games (18 starts) in 2017, he posted a 5.52 ERA and 1.75 WHIP.
The Mets placed Montero (elbow) on the 60-day disabled list Monday. Montero is scheduled to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery Tuesday, so the Mets elected to shift him to the 60-day DL in order to clear an extra spot on the 40-man roster. The Mets will likely use the opening on non-roster invitee Phillip Evans, who was informed over the weekend that he earned a spot with the big club as a utility man off the bench.
