Montgomery (elbow) threw live batting practice Friday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. Montgomery successfully completed his latest throwing session and remains on track for an August return. He'll likely advance to pitching in minor-league games in the near future, considering his most recent progress.
Montgomery (elbow) said he expects to begin incorporating breaking pitches into his bullpen sessions this week, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports. Montgomery has been throwing 30-pitch bullpen sessions consisting entirely of fastballs for the last three weeks and is apparently ready to move on to the next phase of his rehab by making use of his full arsenal. The Yankees are hopeful that Montgomery will be able to return from the 60-day injured list in August, though it's uncertain if the lefty will factor into the team's rotation plans at that time.
Montgomery (elbow) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Friday, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Montgomery is gradually working his way back from Tommy John surgery. He's been limited to fastballs thus far but expects to begin throwing his breaking pitches next week. He's aiming to return in August.
Montgomery (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Saturday. Per Lindsey Adler of The Athletic, Montgomery revealed earlier in the day that he doesn't expect to be ready to pitch in the majors until mid-August, thus making it unsurprising the Yankees will stash him on the 60-day IL. At this point in his rehab from Tommy John surgery, Montgomery is throwing off a half mound, but not at full effort. He's expected to resume tossing fastballs off a full mound next week, but will again be barred from throwing at full capacity.
Montgomery (elbow) expects to throw off a mound sometime in March, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports. The southpaw is currently throwing off flat ground from 90 feet as he works through the initial stages of his rehab from Tommy John surgery last June, per Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record. The Yankees haven't offered up a firm timeline for his return, though for what it's worth, Montgomery believes he'll be ready to rejoin the big club by mid-July, according to Caldera. Whenever he makes it back from the injured list, Montgomery's innings are likely to be monitored carefully coming off a major elbow injury.
