Rafael Montero completed his second minor league rehab start today with the St. Lucie Mets, tossing four scoreless innings. He allowed two hits and one walk while striking out four batters.

Montero has been battling an oblique strain for a couple of weeks now. In mid-June, he left a start for Las Vegas after only five pitches. On July 9, Montero allowed one run in two innings for the Gulf Coast League Mets in his first rehab start since the injury.

In 20 innings with the Mets this season, Montero recorded a 5.40 ERA, walking 11 batters and striking out 17 before being sent down.
