Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Allows one hit over three in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery allowed one hit while striking out two over three scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Sunday.

The lefty was excellent in this one, but his time on the mound was limited (37 pitches) with the Cubs looking to preserve his arm for the postseason. While Montgomery's strikeout rate dipped below 7.0 K/9 this year, he still managed a 3.38 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 130.2 regular-season innings. He could open 2018 in the rotation with both Jake Arrieta and John Lackey hitting free agency this winter.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Will start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery will take Jake Arrieta's place in the rotation for Sunday's contest against the Reds, Bruce Levine of 670thescore.com reports.

With Arrieta resting his hamstring, manager Joe Maddon will turn it over to Montgomery for the regular-season finale, and see how far he can take them before turning it over to the bullpen. During his latest start against the Rays on Sept. 19, Montgomery went six innings, but has appeared out of the bullpen twice in the past week, although he hasn't pitched since Tuesday, so he might be able to last a fairly decent time on the mound.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Stifles Rays in rotation return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (7-8) held the Rays to a single hit -- a solo homer -- over six innings Tuesday, striking out six and earning the victory.

He was nearly perfect, with a Brad Miller long ball and a hit batsman the only things separating Montgomery's six frames from perfection. The lefty wasn't expected to stick in the rotation after this outing, but this impressive showing may help change the team's thinking on that front. It's worth monitoring how the Cubs plan to deploy him in the aftermath of such a sparkling effort.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Tabbed for Tuesday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery will start Tuesday's game against the Rays, Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reports.

Although it had looked like Montgomery was poised to pitch from the bullpen for the remainder of the season, the Cubs will call on him to make another start in their upcoming series against Tampa Bay. However, it doesn't appear that he's in line to remain in the rotation following Tuesday's outing. Montgomery has been used as a starter and reliever this season, compiling a 3.57 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over 40 games (118.1 innings). However, he's struggled over his 12 starts, over which his ERA is a less attractive 4.62.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Moves to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery will not make his scheduled start Thursday and will move to the bullpen, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Prospect Jen-Ho Tseng will get the call to make his big-league debut against the Mets. Montgomery has been better as a reliever (2.32 ERA) than as a starter (4.35 ERA) in his career, which is obviously not surprising. The Cubs will be using him as a reliever in the postseason, so perhaps they just wanted him to get back in that routine before October. He should be used in a multi-inning role.
