Adam Rubin of ESPN New York is hearing that RHP Logan Verrett will likely be recalled by the Mets to replace RHP Rafael Montero who was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas after last night’s game.

The Mets added Montero to the 25-man roster for Monday’s start in place of Jacob deGrom and tossed five scoreless innings against the Marlins despite walking six batters. After tossing¬†100 pitches in his emergency spot start, the Mets are taking an opportunity to add a fresh arm to the bullpen.

Verrett has appeared in dual roles for the Mets this season, going 1-6 with a 6.45 ERA in 12 starts, while posting a 1.29 WHIP and 2.81 ERA in 18 relief appearances.
