6. Rafael Montero, rhp, Mets
Club: Triple-A Las Vegas (Pacific Coast) • Site: Sacramento • Date: Aug. 5 • Age: 24
Rafael MonteroThough Sacramento is one of the best pitcher’s parks in the Pacific Coast League, Montero hasn’t required a cozy home park to find success in an extreme hitter’s league. In parts of two seasons with Las Vegas, he has logged a 3.39 ERA in 16 home starts. (Keep in mind the 51s as a team have a 4.66 ERA this season.) The Mets called up Montero following his eight-inning one-hitter, but he’s now back with Vegas for the PCL playoffs.
