Mirandi Native Keider Montero Emerging as a Promising Pitcher in Detroit Tigers Organization

After six years in the Detroit Tigers organization, Mirandi native Keider Montero was heading into his third season in High-A West Michigan, where he had posted a 4.80 ERA in 40 starts, but last year he improved a world and now He is presented as one of the promises of feline pitching.

In 2023, after four starts at West Michigan, Montero won 10 of his 15 starts with Erie, including six straight starts in June and July, and then five of eight for Toledo. His strikeout rate, which had been just under a strikeout per inning in 2021 and 2022, jumped to 11.8 per nine innings with the SeaWolves, then to 10.1 K/9 with the Mud Hens.

“I did my best in every outing to develop myself in a way that can help my team win,” he told “One of the things I learned was pitch counting, what kind of pitch I should throw and sequences. “That’s one of the things that helped me be consistent all year, and being consistent was one of the key things that helped me jump those two levels last year,” the right-hander added.

Montero is characterized by a breaking slider and a good curve. “The effect of the breaking ball is natural. I have always had a high turning speed,” said the native of Santa Teresa del Tuy.

Detroit also has Venezuelan prospect pitcher Wilmer Flores, who in three years in the minors has a record of 18-12 with a 3.66 ERA in 58 starts with 310 strikeouts.
