    • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Optioned to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Montas was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday. Montas has been working on and off out of the major-league bullpen this season but will be sent back to Triple-A with Jharel Cotton (finger) returning from the disabled list Sunday. Montas struggled in his time in the majors, posting a 7.03 ERA and 13.2 percent walk rate over 32 innings of relief.

    • Montas struck out four and allowed one earned run on two hits and four walks over 2.1 innings in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Twins. Montas' 49-pitch outing was anything but dull, with his control issues leading to an elevated pitch count. The hard-throwing reliever appears to be struggling with some of the same issues that led to his demotion to Triple-A Nashville earlier in the season, but his considerable upside and tantalizing upper-90s fastball are likely to continue affording him plenty of rope for the time being.

    • Montas struck out one and allowed two earned runs on a hit and a walk over one inning in Friday's 7-5 loss to the Mets. Montas' return to the majors was far from smooth, as he surrendered a 360-foot shot to Michael Conforto that extended the Mets' lead to 7-3 at the time. The fire-balling right-hander brings plenty of swing-and-miss upside, but inconsistency has been his biggest drawback, even down at the Triple-A level; the 24-year-old posted four scoreless efforts in his most-recent stint at Nashville, but also gave up 10 earned runs over a late-June/early-July three-appearance stretch.

    • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Recalled from Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Athletics recalled Montas from Triple-A Nashville on Thursday. Montas will provide length in the bullpen. He's fared decently with the Sounds, producing a 4.22 ERA but striking out 31 in 21.1 innings (including six starts), though he's scuffled more in the majors with a 6.91 ERA over 28.2 frames. It seems as if the 24-year-old's future profiles as a reliever, despite the possibility that he could perform as a wild but often dominant starter.

    • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Optioned to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Montas was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday. The Athletics determined that Montas was in need of further refinement in the minors after he allowed 10 runs over 4.2 innings in his last four appearances. The hard-throwing right-hander had previously been developed as a starting pitching prospect, but since finding the strike zone has consistently proved to be an issue across multiple stops in the minors, it appears the Athletics are viewing him as a reliever over the long haul.
