Montgomery (elbow) was shifted to the 60-day DL on Monday, Marc Carig of The Athletic reports. This is strictly a housekeeping move since Montgomery has already been ruled out for the rest of the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in early June. George Kontos was added to the active roster in a subsequent move.
Montgomery (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery Thursday, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports. Montgomery also had a loose bone chip removed from his elbow during Thursday's procedure. As is the case with any Tommy John surgery, the left-hander will likely remain sidelined for 12-to-14 months, which casts serious doubt on his status for the 2019 season. Look for updates on Montgomery's status throughout the year, especially once fall rolls around and he's able to gradually work into a rehab pattern.
Montgomery (elbow) is scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery Thursday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. It was determined Tuesday that Montgomery will require reconstructive elbow surgery -- a surprise after he progressed to throwing off flat ground Saturday. Montgomery will be forced to miss the remainder of the 2018 season, and likely most of 2019, while rehabbing from surgery. In six starts this season, he posted a decent 3.62 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with a 23:12 K:BB.
Montgomery (elbow) threw about 50 or 60 times off flat ground Saturday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Montgomery is expected to gradually increase the distance he plays catch over the next week or so before progressing to mound work. The lefty has been sidelined since May 1 with an elbow strain and will likely require at least two rehab starts before being activated from the 10-day disabled list, so it's not expected that he'll be an option for the Yankees rotation until mid-to-late June at the soonest. His ongoing absence will continue to afford more starting opportunities to rookie Domingo German.
Montgomery (elbow) will be shut down from all throwing activities for 2-to-3 weeks with an initial timetable of 6-to-8 weeks before he returns to the big-league club, Sweeny Murti of Sportsradio 66 WFAN reports. Montgomery landed on the 10-day disabled list due to a left elbow flexor strain that he suffered during Tuesday's outing in Houston. The club has yet to confirm who will be taking Montgomery's place in the rotation, but Domingo German appears to be the best bet.
