Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Will pitch in first week of games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery will pitch in the team's first week of spring training games as he competes for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, MLB.com reports.

Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta, Kyle Hendricks and John Lackey aren't expected to pitch until the second week of games, but Montgomery and Brett Anderson are slated to pitch when Cactus League play begins on Saturday. The two lefties are battling for the final spot in the rotation, with the loser of the competition likely ticketed for a long relief role to being the season.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Eyeing rotation spot this spring
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Montgomery will compete for the No. 5 spot in the Cubs' rotation, but he could be a versatile swing man this year, The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Montgomery came over to the Cubs last July and primarily worked as a reliever, although he did make five starts. He also ended up recording the save in Game 7 of the World Series, but he has his sights set on the rotation in spring training. "I've always been a starter, and I think last year was a situation where the need was in the bullpen, both with Seattle and with the Cubs early on," Montgomery said. He will compete with Brett Anderson for the last spot in the rotation, and the loser of that battle figures to work in long relief.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Staying in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery will not make a start the final week of the season as he'll stay in the bullpen, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Montgomery was penciled in to start Thursday. Instead, Rob Zastryzny will start Thursday but the Cubs plan to use several relievers.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Whiffs seven in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery took a no-decision after allowing three runs on four hits and one walk with seven strikeouts in six innings in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Brewers.

Montgomery turned in his second quality start of the season but his first since being traded from Seattle on July 20. He's allowed three runs or fewer in all seven of his starts this year, though Thursday was just the second time that he pitched past the fifth inning. The 27-year-old has flashed good stuff out of Chicago's six-man rotation with 24 strikeouts and 18 hits allowed in 24.1 innings, but his command still needs polishing as he's walked 12 batters during that span. He'll look to build off Thursday's outing in a friendly home matchup against the Reds on Wednesday.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Tosses five strong frames in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery allowed one run on just two hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings in Wednesday's no-decision against the Brewers.

Although he delivered a pretty trim line, it did take Montgomery 87 pitches to finish those five frames, and he was lifted without the excuse of a pinch hitter. Montgomery's now made four starts as a Cub, and he hasn't lasted longer than five innings in any of them. With the NL Central on lock and home-field advantage looking likely, the Cubs are taking it easy on their starters down the stretch by using a six-man rotation, so Montgomery's likely to see more starting opportunities. However, fantasy owners should keep their expectations low.
