Beginning with 2 2/3 innings of clutch relief in a win in Washington on April 24, Monasterios often came through out of the bullpen. Trying him out as a starter didn't work so well (one quality start in 13 tries), but he was rarely dead weight. ... Highlight: Five innings of shutout ball on June 2 against Arizona. ... Lowlight: Pounded for five runs before getting the hook in the third Aug. 31 vs. Philadelphia. ... Sidelight: 2.06 reliever ERA was third-best behind Jansen and Kuo.
