BINGHAMTON -- B-Mets Manager Pedro Lopez has chosen an Opening Day starter: Rafael Montero.
The skipper has nothing but good things to say about the righty, "He is just a kid who had a tremendous year last year, did a terrific job in this year's Big League and Minor League camps, so I'm really happy to have him in my rotation."
The players are equally as confident. Catcher Francisco Pena explains, "Real electro stuff, Montero throws a lot of strikes for being a young pitcher you know, hopefully the weather isn't too bad for him."
First pitch in Akron is scheduled for 6:35 PM Thursday, when the temperature will be around 48 degrees.
