Mets | Won't skip Rafael Montero, Jacob deGrom

The New York Mets don't plan to skip SP Rafael Montero in the starting rotation next time through. The team plans to limit Montero to 180 innings this year. SP Jacob deGrom, who threw 147 2/3 innings last season, will likely be capped around 175 innings. Because of deGrom's nice debut Thursday, May 16, it's unknown which rookie will be sent to the bullpen when SP Dillon Gee (lat) returns from the disabled list. Manager Terry Collins said it's unlikely both Montero and deGrom remain in the rotation when Gee returns.

Fantasy Tip: Montero and deGrom are both top pitching prospects for the team. Montero is more intriguing for fantasy baseball owners, though, and we expect he'll be kept in the rotation over deGrom, depending on both pitcher's results in the next few weeks.
