Montgomery has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Tigers that includes an invitation to spring training, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Montgomery spent all of 2017 with Triple-A Memphis, compiling a 2.43 ERA and 73:15 K:BB across 66.2 innings. Shoulder injuries halted his progress a few years ago, but the now-healthy 27-year-old is looking to prove he has what it takes to be a big-league reliever. He owns a career 2.35 ERA with 449 strikeouts across seven minor-league seasons (352.1 innings).
