I'm hearing that Logan Verrett is likely to rejoin the Mets on Tuesday. That makes a ton of sense. After Rafael Montero threw 100 pitches on Monday, he's not of any use for several days. And there is really no immediate role for Montero anyway since he was just making a spot start for Jacob deGrom. Montero walked six but tossed five scoreless innings against the Marlins.
