Player Outlook
Frankie Montas collected a 6.35 ERA in eight regular-season starts for the Yankees in 2022 after being acquired from the Athletics via trade before going down with a shoulder injury. The right-hander did make it back for one playoff appearance but wound up needing surgery on the shoulder in February. It was expected to be a season-ending operation, but Montas worked his way back for one late-season relief appearance, providing some hope that he's past the shoulder problems. At his best, Montas is a hard thrower capable of piling up strikeouts with his nasty splitter. His velocity was solid but down a bit in his one 2023 appearance, and it's fair to wonder whether he'll ever regain his pre-op stuff. Montas' workload figures to be limited even if he stays healthy given that he's basically coming off a lost season. He currently remains a free agent.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Lasts five innings Friday

    Montas gave up three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out one over five innings in a no-decision versus the Dodgers on Friday. Montas gave up a leadoff blast to Mookie Betts in the first inning and a two-run home run to Shohei Ohtani in the third. The Reds were able to erase that damage after Montas exited, but the Dodgers rallied in the late innings. Given the opponent, this was an acceptable start from the right-hander. He's still at a pedestrian 4.37 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 25:15 K:BB through 35 innings over eight starts this season. Montas' next start is projected to come at home versus the Padres.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: No-decision Sunday

    Montas allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out three over 4.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Giants on Sunday. Montas was cruising until the Giants built up a five-run rally in the fifth inning. The right-hander has made seven starts this year, and in the six during which he has been able to avoid injury, he's allowed two or fewer runs three times while giving up five runs in each of the other three. That averages out to a pedestrian 4.20 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 24:12 K:BB across 30 innings overall. Montas is projected for a difficult road start versus the Dodgers in his next outing.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Stuck with loss in return

    Montas (2-3) took the loss Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk over six innings. He struck out seven. Montas wound up spending the minimum 15 days on the IL after he was struck by a line drive in his last start, resulting in a bruised forearm. The 31-year-old right-hander was sharp in his return, though he'd ultimately wind up with the loss as the Reds' offense couldn't break through against Zac Gallen. Montas now sports a 3.55 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP and 21:11 K:BB across his first six starts (25.1 innings) with Cincinnati. He's currently lined up for a road matchup with the Giants on Sunday in his next outing.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Activated ahead of Tuesday's start

    The Reds activated Montas (forearm) from the 15-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. Montas is set to rejoin the rotation Tuesday versus the Diamondbacks after missing the last two weeks with a bruised right forearm. The Reds have opted to bring him back without a rehab start, as Montas evidently looked good enough in a couple bullpen sessions to convince the team he was ready. Because of that, he might not be be able to handle a full workload. That, combined with his uneven performance before the injury, makes Montas an iffy fantasy start Tuesday.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Tuesday's scheduled starter

    Montas (forearm) is listed as the scheduled starter for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks in Cincinnati. Montas, who has been on the 15-day injured list since April 22, threw a couple of bullpen sessions last week. The Reds apparently saw enough from Montas in those throwing sessions to have him avoid a minor-league rehab stint and slot right back into the big-league rotation for the series opener versus Arizona.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Tracking toward return next week

    Reds manager David Bell said Tuesday that he expects Montas (forearm) to return from the 15-day injured list when first eligible May 7 or the day after, MLB.com reports. Montas was placed on the IL on April 22 with a bruised right forearm, which he sustained when he was struck by a line drive in his start a day earlier. Bell noted that Montas threw a side session Monday without issue, and the right-hander will throw one more bullpen session later this week as a final test of his health. If all goes well, Montas should rejoin the rotation for the Reds' three-game series with the Diamondbacks that begins next Tuesday.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Shelved with bruised forearm

    The Reds placed Montas (forearm) on the 15-day injured list Monday. Montas' move to the IL isn't an overly surprising one, as the right-hander had already conceded that he would need to miss at least his next turn through the rotation after exiting in the first inning of his start Sunday against the Angels when he was struck in his pitching arm by a liner. Fortunately for Montas, he was able to avoid any fractured bones, but he's dealing with a painful bruise that will keep him on the shelf for at least the next two weeks. If Montas is able to resume throwing in the coming days, he should have a good chance at returning from the 15-day IL around the time he's first eligible for activation May 7. The Reds are likely to turn to Nick Martinez to fill Montas' spot in the rotation.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Likely to miss next start

    Montas (forearm) said after Sunday's game against the Angels that he's likely to miss his next start due to soreness and swelling, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Montas recorded just two outs before a comebacker forced him from Sunday's game, and it appears the forearm bruise will cost him at least one turn through the rotation. The right-hander avoided a fracture but may still require a trip to the injured list, depending how quickly the swelling and soreness subsides.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: X-rays return negative

    Montas had X-rays come back negative and was diagnosed with a right forearm bruise after exiting Sunday's start against the Angels. The right-hander was struck by a comebacker during the opening frame but appears to have avoided a serious injury. Montas should be considered day-to-day, and it remains to be seen if he'll be ready for his next turn through the rotation.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Departs Sunday's game

    Montas was removed from Sudnay's game against the Angels after being hit in the right arm by a comebacker, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. Montas was struck by a line drive off the bat of Taylor Ward during the first inning and was unable to remain in the contest. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the right-hander could be headed for medical imaging.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Struggles with control in loss

    Montas (2-2) took the loss against Seattle on Monday, allowing five runs on three hits and five walks while striking out one batter over two innings. Much of Montas' troubles were self-inflicted, as he issued five free passes and threw just 34 of 66 pitches for strikes. It didn't help that he was hit hard when getting Mariners batters to swing -- two of the three hits against him left the park. Montas began the season looking great, going 2-0 and allowing just one run over 11.2 frames across his first two starts. However, he's faltered with two straight losses during which he's yielded 10 runs (eight earned) over seven innings. Montas will look to get back on track in his next start, which is tentatively lined up to come at home against the Angels this weekend.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Picks up second win

    Montas (2-0) recorded the win Wednesday in a 4-1 victory over the Phillies, allowing one run on five hits and three walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out five, The right-hander couldn't quite deliver his second straight quality start to begin the season, blanking Philly for five innings before fading in the sixth -- Kyle Schwarber led off the frame with a solo shot, and Montas then loaded the bases with two outs before Justin Wilson was able to quell the rally. Montas exited after 100 pitches (63 strikes), and through his first two outings with the Reds he's posted a 9:3 K:BB in 11.2 innings. The 31-year-old lines up to make his next start at home early next week against the Brewers.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Impresses in Opening Day win

    Montas (1-0) tossed six scoreless innings and allowed four hits and no walks while striking out four to earn the win Thursday win against the Nationals. While the Nats offense isn't expected to light MLB on fire this season, Montas going six scoreless in Great American Ballpark is a noteworthy accomplishment -- especially after logging a 5.94 ERA this spring. Although Montas doesn't have the stuff he had in prior years, he should be in a solid position to succeed if he can keep walks allowed to a minimum. He'll likely have a tougher time in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled to come against the Phillies.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Tunes up for Opening Day

    Montas allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out six over five innings in Saturday's spring start against the Rockies. Montas appeared to have righted himself the last two times out following a couple of shaky outings, finishing the Cactus League on a high note. He next prepares for Thursday's Opening Day start at home against Washington. He talked to Charlie Goldsmith of the Cincinnati Enquirer about getting his repertoire in shape. "Being able to use my four-seam and two seam, not just being able to use it but also getting good results," the right-hander said. "My slider is there. My cutter is there. I threw some really good splitters today." Montas finished the spring with a 5.94 ERA, 16 strikeouts, five walks and five home runs allowed over five starts.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Rights himself Monday

    Montas allowed one run on three hits while striking out five over four innings in Monday's spring start against San Francisco. Montas elicited sighs of relief, delivering a strong outing after surrendering four runs in each of his previous two Cactus League starts. The lone run scored on a misplayed grounder up the middle. A wavering breaking ball was the main culprit in his previous outing, but Montas was able to locate the pitch better Monday, per Charlie Goldsmith of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Montas will have one more start before taking the ball Opening Day, March 28, at home against the Nationals.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Rough go third time out

    Montas allowed four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two over three innings in Wednesday's spring start against the Giants. Montas, making his third Cactus League start, walked three batters and threw a wild pitch in the first inning and was pulled from the game. He came back out for the second inning and pitched into the fourth, when he hit a batter and surrendered two home runs. Cincinnati's Opening Day starter was scheduled to go five innings, per Mark Sheldon of MLB.com, but his wavering command did him in early. Montas told Gordon Wittenmyer of the Cincinnati Enquirer that he couldn't land his breaking stuff for strikes and had just one consistent pitch (his sinker). He'll get two more spring starts to prepare for Opening Day.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Named Opening Day starter

    Montas will start for the Reds on Opening Day against the Nationals, Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com reports. Manager David Bell's announcement that Montas will get the nod over Hunter Greene comes as a bit of a surprise, but walks have been an issue for Greene this spring, while Montas has made a good early impression after the Reds shelled out $14 million to acquire his services this offseason. Montas underwent arthroscopic shoulder surgery last year and missed almost the entire 2023 campaign, returning for only a single appearance on the final weekend. He made a combined 59 starts between Oakland and New York from 2021-22.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Shines in spring debut

    Montas struck out two over two hitless and scoreless innings in Tuesday's spring start against the Cubs. Montas logged two perfect innings in his Cactus League debut, which left him feeling ebullient following the outing. The right-hander underwent shoulder surgery in February 2023 and made one relief appearance for the Yankees last season. "It's been a long time," Montas told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. "I think two years [ago] when I was pitching in spring training. Being back on the mound is exciting for me. I feel happy and blessed about that." He threw 27 pitches and used his entire arsenal -- four-seam and two-seam fastball, splitter, cutter and slider -- with his velocity sitting 94-to-96 mph.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Earns win in return

    Montas (1-0) earned the win Saturday against Kansas City. He allowed two hits and one walk while striking out one over 1.1 scoreless innings. In his first appearance of the 2023 campaign following arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder in February, Montas entered in the fifth inning of a tie game and surrendered a walk, a single and a double. Despite the traffic, he held the Royals scoreless for 1.1 innings, and the Yankees' offense tallied three runs in the sixth to hand the 30-year-old righty a win in his return. Montas finally put it all together for Oakland in 2021, winning 13 games with a 3.37 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 207:57 K:BB across 187 innings that season.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Activated from IL

    The Yankees reinstated Montas (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list Saturday. Montas has been held out all season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder in February, but he will return to the Yankees' pitching staff for the final two games of the season. The 30-year-old righty gave up one run over three innings during a rehab assignment in Triple-A, and he could make an appearance out of the bullpen before the end of the year. Jasson Dominguez (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day IL to free up a 40-man spot for Montas, and Randy Vasquez was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
