    Montgomery's older brother Christian was selected in the 11th round out of high school by the Mets in 2011, but J.J. has a chance to go higher after a strong season with Central Florida. Splitting time evenly between starting and reliever, Montgomery posted a 2.49 ERA through 16 games and 61 innings, with 72 strikeouts and 18 walks. He profiles better as a reliever at the next level, with a fastball that's better out of the bullpen, touching 95-96 mph. He has a fringe-average slider in the 79-83 mph range, and as a starter he also used a cutter and a 81-82 mph changeup at times, but had a tendency to slow his arm down with these pitches.
