Montero struck out five, ending the game with a 5.05 ERA and 1.69 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Montero has won all three starts since moving back into the rotation, posting a 2.41 ERA despite walking 14 in 18 2/3 innings.

Montero struck out three, ending the game with a 5.21 ERA and 1.69 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Montero managed to get a win despite struggling a bit against the Phillies after posting a 2.10 ERA in his previous four starts. His five walks remain a season high, and it's that lack of control which makes him a risky fantasy play. He's walked 26 batters in his last 44 2/3 innings.

Aug. 15 10:35 PM PT11:35 PM MT12:35 AM CT1:35 AM ET1:35 ET5:35 GMT13:35 10:35 PM MST12:35 AM EST1:05 AM VEN9:35 UAE12:35 AM CT-Rafael Montero allowed two runs on five hits and two walks in 6.0 innings as the New York Mets lost to the New York Yankees 4-2 on Monday.

Analysis: After being rocked for 13 runs and 18 hits in 13 1/3 innings over his previous three starts, Montero turned in a much better performance that possibly kept him in the rotation for the time being. He'd still be a shaky play if he does take the mound against Giancarlo Stanton and the surging Marlins at Citi Field on Saturday.

Analysis: Once a well-regarded prospect, Montero has mostly struggled in the majors. But he's provided encouraging signs lately.

This time, he kept Philadelphia scoreless in every inning but the second and now has 21 strikeouts with a 2.89 ERA in 18 2/3 innings over four games (two starts) since being recalled June 14.
