I was at training when this release was out, but was able to tweet it until I could post it here. It was odd to see Miguel Montano in street clothes at Qwest today — considering he hasn’t been added to the final roster and it’s the final day of the transfer window — but it turns out he’s leaving today en route to Colombia.
The team confirmed that they expect his move to the roster be finalized soon. It’s a matter of paperwork. And supposedly the team did all it needed to do in the process before today’s transfer deadline, so that shouldn’t effect his status.
