Mets Finally Give Up On Rafael Montero

Rafael Montero

Once a rising star in the New York Mets organization, right-handed pitcher Rafael Montero was outrighted by the team Friday and elected to become a free agent.

Montero, 28, missed the entire 2018 season after suffering a complete tear of the unlar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow during spring training.

This just goes to bad scouting, because Montero rarely if ever displayed the type of talent needed on the big league level to be considered a possible ace of the future.
