Mike Montgomery healthy?

" Kansas City prospect Mike Montgomery, who had been scheduled to pitch Friday, is healthy but had his turn in the rotation skipped. The 21-year-old left-hander, 2-4 with a 5.83 ERA, is winless in nine starts since May 4, and leads the Pacific Coast League with 46 walks." Despite the numbers, he's the best pitching prospect on that team. Skipping his turn to help Omaha win a game doesn't make sense, so my read is that he's either injured or the team wants him to take some extra time to clear his head....but isn't 5 days between starts plenty of time to clear one's head? I hope this doesn't turn into a surprise TJ surgery announcement in a month, but I suppose I wouldn't be too surprised.
