LHP Dario Alvarez, RHP Rafael Montero and RHP Akeel Morris have all been optioned to minor league camp…RHP Chase Bradford, RHP Paul Sewald and C Raywilly Gomez have been reassigned to minor league camp…There are now a total of 52 players in camp for the Mets.
It is a bit of a disappointing turn of events for Montero as he was vying for a bullpen spot. Montero’s spring has not gone the way he or the Mets envisioned so far, and his stock has taken a tumble over the past year. I hope Montero is able to get it all together soon, because he has proven in the past he has the make-up of a Major League pitcher. I expect Montero, granted he’s healthy, will start the year in AAA.
