From ESPN NY:
While watching right-hander Rafael Montero throwing live batting practice Tuesday, Dan Warthen uttered two words to the bullpen catcher standing next to him.
“[Expletive] smooth!” the pitching coach excitedly said.
Warthen repeatedly has said this spring training that the 23-year-old Montero possesses as close to a perfect delivery as any in the game.
His fastball generally resides in the low-90s, but he has more in the tank when required.
“I talk to guys on other teams, like in Triple-A,” said Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who faced Montero in Tuesday’s batting practice. “Come August and September, they’re just like, ‘That guy has an extra gear. His fastball has got an extra gear I can’t get to right now.’”
Said Juan Lagares, who also batted against Montero on Tuesday: “He always tries to keep the ball down and he throws a lot of strikes. It’s not too easy to hit against him, because always he keeps it down in the strike zone. He doesn’t miss too much up.”
Nieuwenhuis, a lefty hitter, said Montero can be particularly tough on those batters.
“He must have long fingers or something, because when it comes out, for a lefty it kind of looks like it’s going to sneak in on you,” Nieuwenhuis said, adding that two-seamer eventually darts back over the plate.

The Mets on Friday signed first baseman Matt Clark to a Minor League contract with an invitation to big league Spring Training.
Clark, who also has experience as an outfielder, spent five seasons in the Padres organization from 2008-12 before taking his game to Japan last season. The left-handed hitter flashed his power potential in Japan, connecting for 25 home runs over 132 games with Chunichi Dragons, while also posting a .238 average and driving in 70 runs.
As for his production stateside, Clark hit .282 with 102 homers and 390 RBIs during his five seasons in the Minors. Originally selected by the Padres in the 12th round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft, Clark's final two years in the Padres' system were spent entirely with Triple-A Tucson, where he hit .291 with 45 long balls and 160 RBIs over 250 games.
