  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Whiffs 12 in loss

    Montas (2-4) was handed the loss during Sunday's 4-1 defeat at the hands of the Angels, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk with 12 strikeouts in six innings.

    Montas was dealt what proved to be the crushing blow when Shohei Ohtani tagged him for a two-run home run in the first inning. The 29-year-old rebounded to hold Los Angeles scoreless through the remaining five innings, striking out a season-best 12 batters with an impressive 22 swinging strikes in the process. Montas has now received a total of nine runs of support during his past five starts, all Oakland losses, and will look to return to the win column with a rematch against Los Angeles scheduled for next weekend.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Handed loss in matinee

    Montas (2-3) took the loss during Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Tigers. He allowed four runs on seven hits with four strikeouts and three walks over 6.1 innings.

    Montas started off with four scoreless frames before Detroit tallied three runs over the fifth and sixth innings, but he still came back out for the seventh. The right-hander struck out the first batter but was pulled after walking Robbie Grossman, who eventually came around to score. Montas has covered at least five frames in all seven starts this season, and he has a 3.77 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 41:12 K:BB across 43 innings.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Shuts down Rays

    Montas allowed four hits and one walk while striking out six across seven scoreless innings Wednesday against the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.

    Montas was dominant for his entire outing, as he scattered three singles and a double across his seven innings of work. He wasn't prolific in terms of strikeouts, though he does have at least six punchouts in five of his six starts this season. Montas has also allowed two or fewer earned runs four times to begin the campaign, resulting in a 3.44 ERA across 36.2 frames.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Victimized by long ball

    Montas registered a no-decision during Friday's 9-8 loss to the Guardians, allowing five runs on five hits and four walks with six strikeouts in five innings.

    Montas pitched well aside from the third inning, when a single and two walks set the table for an Andres Gimenez grand slam, as the only other damage was a Jose Ramirez solo shot in the first. The 29-year-old has delivered three dominant performances and two subpar ones, which has led to a mediocre 4.25 ERA despite a 0.98 WHIP. Montas is set to pitch during next week's series against Tampa Bay.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Strong effort in loss

    Montas (2-2) took the loss to the Rangers on Saturday, allowing two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out eight over 7.1 innings.

    This was a tough-luck loss; Montas hung zeros on the scoreboard through seven, with the only runs against him scoring after he exited the game (the second on a slide interference call at home plate no less). Fantasy managers have to be thrilled with what Montas is providing. He has a 3.28 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 25:4 K:BB through four starts.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Registers second win

    Montas (2-1) earned the win over Baltimore on Monday, allowing one run on two hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings.

    Montas held the Orioles to just four baserunners and one run through six frames, but he threw his final pitch with the score tied 1-1. Fortunately for the right-hander, Oakland found its offense in the bottom of the sixth, producing four runs to put Montas in line for the victory. After allowing five runs and taking the loss against Philadelphia in his first appearance of the campaign, Montas has earned back-to-back wins while yielding just two earned runs over his subsequent 12.1 innings. He's line up to make his next start at home against Texas on Saturday.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Fans six in first win

    Montas (1-1) earned the win over Tampa Bay on Wednesday, completing 6.1 innings and allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and no walks while striking out six.

    Montas was touched for a solo home run by Ji-Man Choi in the fourth inning, but that was the only extra-base hit he allowed in the outing. The right-hander registered 16 swinging strikes among his 89 pitches and didn't issue any free passes. Montas struggled by giving up five earned runs against Philadelphia in his first start, so this was an impressive bounce-back performance. He's slated to next take the mound at home against Baltimore next week.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Struggles in loss

    Montas (0-1) struck out six in five innings while allowing five runs on six hits and a walk in a 9-5 loss Friday in Philadelphia.

    Montas gave up a home run to leadoff man Kyle Schwarber in the first and was hit hard in the four-run third. The 29-year-old eventually settled down, retiring the last seven hitters he faced, but the damage had already been done. Montas made only two appearances in the preseason and may need a little time to regain his form. Surrounded by trade rumors all spring, he'll be given every opportunity to right the ship and showcase his abilities.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Named Opening Day starter

    Manager Mark Kotsay said Sunday that Montas will start the Athletics' Opening Day game Friday in Philadelphia, Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Though Kotsay said the Athletics planned all along to have Montas take the hill for the opener, it became more apparent that the right-hander would get the nod after Oakland dealt Sean Manaea to San Diego earlier Sunday. Montas could be the next domino to fall in the Athletics' ongoing fire sale, but for the time being, he'll operate as the club's clear No. 1 starter. He enjoyed an excellent 2021 campaign for Oakland, covering a career-high 187 frames and finishing with a 13-9 record to go with a 3.37 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 207:57 K:BB.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Still in play for Opening Day start

    Montas will pitch Sunday in a simulated game on a back field at the Athletics' spring training complex, leaving him in play for a possible Opening Day assignment next Friday against the Phillies, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    The hard-throwing right-hander has put together two sharply contrasting starts in Cactus League play thus far, with his most recent turn Sunday against the Mariners qualifying as the one where he pitched to plenty of contact. However, Montas and Sean Manaea remain the top two pitchers in the rotation, and consequently, the realistic candidates to draw an Opening Day start.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Hit hard in second spring start

    Montas allowed four earned runs on six hits and a walk across three innings in a Cactus League loss to the Mariners on Sunday. He struck out three.

    The right-hander allowed a first-inning home run to Eugenio Suarez and pitched to plenty of more contact over his three frames. Montas' struggles were in sharp contrast to his first outing against the Royals on Tuesday, when he'd logged 2.2 scoreless frames. Despite the rocky stint Sunday, Montas still projects as Oakland's top starter if he isn't traded ahead of the regular season.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Scoreless effort in spring debut

    Montas started Tuesday's Cactus League loss to the Royals and fired 2.2 scoreless innings, allowing four hits while recording a strikeout.

    The right-hander, who, along with rotation mate Sean Manaea has been the subject of trade rumors in recent days, faced 11 batters. Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports Montas hit 96 mph on the radar gun in four of his first five pitches and logged 41 offerings overall. Montas also utilized both his splitter and slider effectively, and if he remains with the team, he's considered the leading candidate to serve as the Opening Day starter versus the Phillies on April 8.

  • Athletics' Frankie Montas: Signs 2022 deal with A's

    Montas agreed to a one-year, $5.025 million contract with the Athletics on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Montas made only $1.8 million in his first year of arbitration eligibility last season, so he'll receive a raise for 2022 after posting a 3.37 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 207:57 K:BB over 187 innings. The right-hander has been a popular name in trade discussions given the A's selloff of key players, but for now he'll remain in Oakland.
