Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Displays refined mechanics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery has worked on a "less-exaggerated angular delivery" as well as getting more extension on his changeup and putting reduced stress on his arm since returning from Tommy John surgery last season, Pete Caldera of NorthJersey.com reports.

Montgomery was impressive in Grapefruit League action, posting a 16:1 K:BB over 11 innings. That helped him ascend to the No. 4 spot in the Yankees' rotation before play was suspended, though a possible return to health of James Paxton (back) by the start of the rescheduled regular season could push Montgomery back to a fifth-starter role. Still, a place anywhere in the team's rotation should be considered a noteworthy success given the fact that Montgomery hurled a mere 7.2 frames across all levels in 2019.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Impressive in spring action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery was lauded Wednesday by Yankees vice president of baseball operations Tim Naehring for his performance this spring, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports.

In an interview with Meredith Marakovits of the YES Network, Naehring mentioned that Montgomery's command and changeup in Grapefruit League play "stood out big-time." The southpaw compiled an eye-popping 16:1 K:BB over 11 innings this spring, though he did serve up four home runs and allow five earned runs. Montgomery is the favorite for the Yankees' fifth-starter role when the 2020 campaign gets underway.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Locked in as No. 4 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery is a lock to make the rotation, according to manager Aaron Boone, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

This isn't all that surprising, as Gerrit Cole, Masahiro Tanaka and J.A. Happ are the only established rotation members who will be healthy on Opening Day, and Montgomery has much more experience in the big-league rotation than guys like Michael King and Jonathan Loaisiga. It says as much about the Yankees' depth as it does Montgomery. The 27-year-old lefty has struck out seven without allowing a run in four innings this spring. He has a 3.91 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 172 strikeouts in 186.2 MLB innings.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Flashes improved velocity Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery tossed two no-hit innings out of the bullpen in Monday's 3-3 tie with the Pirates. He struck out three and issued one walk in the outing.

All eyes were on starter Gerrit Cole in his Yankees debut, but Montgomery turned in an impressive following act after the high-priced ace exited after one inning. In addition to the quality results, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com noted that Montgomery's fastball touched 94 miles per hour in his first Grapefruit League appearance, with the southpaw noting afterward that it's the first time he's reached that sort of velocity since he underwent Tommy John surgery in June 2018. The 27-year-old was already on solid ground for a rotation spot with Luis Severino (elbow) and James Paxton (back) both slated to open the season on the injured list, and Montgomery only strengthened his bid for a starting job with Monday's appearance.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Temporary rotation spot opens up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery appears to be a strong candidate to start the year in the Yankees' rotation following James Paxton's back surgery, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Paxton isn't expected back until May or June. With Domingo German not returning until June due to suspension, a handful of starts should be available behind Gerrit Cole, Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka and J.A. Happ. Michael King, Jonathan Loaisiga and Luis Cessa could also be in contention for a rotation spot, though Montgomery is the most accomplished of that group and should have the inside track, provided he looks good this spring after missing most of the last two seasons due to Tommy John surgery.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Avoids arbitration hearing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery signed a one-year contract with the Yankees on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

Montgomery tossed just four innings in the majors a season ago, allowing three runs while fanning five. He'll enter spring training with the chance to compete for a role in the starting rotation.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Two scoreless frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery logged two scoreless innings Tuesday against the Rays, allowing three hits with zero walks and three strikeouts. He did not factor in the decision.

This is likely the final time Montgomery will pitch this season. It was reported days ago that he was unlikely to pitch again after making an appearance Sept. 15 -- his first MLB appearance back from Tommy John surgery -- but then he was surprisingly named the starter for this contest. Montgomery should compete for a rotation spot in spring training.

September 24, 2019 03:52 PM
Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery will start Tuesday against the Rays, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

The announcement is something of a surprise, as it was reported over the weekend that Montgomery wasn't likely to pitch again this season. He threw just two innings in his only appearance of the year back on Sept. 15, so it's likely that he'll be more of an opener than a starter on this occasion. The Yankees have yet to announce who will follow Montgomery as the bulk reliever.

September 22, 2019 02:52 PM
Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Not expected to pitch again in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery is healthy and available but there is no set plan for him to pitch again in 2019, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Montgomery returned to the mound Sept. 15 in a two-inning relief appearance. He hasn't thrown since then, however, and it appears as if the team is more focused on positioning its postseason roster.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Makes 2019 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery allowed three runs on four hits with no walks and two strikeouts across two innings during a relief appearance against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

His first big-league appearance of the season came after Chad Green opened the game with a first-inning appearance. Montgomery avoided the loss, but he didn't pitch particularly well, giving up at least a run in each of the innings he pitched, including a solo homer. With Montgomery fully healed from a shoulder injury and the Yankees close to wrapping up a playoff spot, it will be interesting to see how much work he receives down the stretch. Montgomery is 11-7 with a 4.30 ERA in 36 career MLB appearances, all of which had been starts before Sunday.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: To follow opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (shoulder) was activated off the 60-day injured list Sunday but will follow opener Chad Green, rather than starting as previously reported, Randy Miller of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Montgomery is set for his first big-league outing of the season after recovering from both Tommy John surgery and shoulder inflammation. The news that he'll follow an opener would seem to be a slight boost to his fantasy value, as he could have a shot at a win without needing to pitch five innings. He hasn't thrown more than three innings in any of his four rehab appearances.

September 14, 2019 12:44 PM
Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (shoulder) will start Sunday in Toronto, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

He threw three innings in each of his last two rehab starts, so it would be unwise to bank on him going deep enough in this start for him to qualify for a win. Montgomery will look to finish the season strong and will compete for a spot in the rotation next year in spring training.

September 12, 2019 11:20 PM
Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Could pitch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (shoulder) could be activated to start Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Montgomery could follow an opener in that contest, but he at least seems ready to see his first game action since May 1, 2018. He has thrown three innings in each of his last two rehab appearances, so he would probably only have a chance to get the win if he came in out of the bullpen.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Hurls three innings in rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (shoulder) tossed three innings for Double-A Trenton on Tuesday, giving up two runs (one earned) on two hits and one walk while striking out one.

Montgomery hurled his most pitches in a rehab outing to date, firing strikes on 30 of 50 throws to the plate. He allowed the first three hitters of the game to reach base but settled down thereafter to retire the final nine batters he faced. The appearance was likely the last for Montgomery in a minor-league uniform this season. He is on track to return to the Yankees -- likely in a relief role -- in the near future.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Starting Tuesday for Double-A club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (shoulder) is scheduled to make a rehab start Tuesday for Double-A Trenton in Game 1 of the affiliate's Eastern League Championship Series matchup with Bowie.

With the minor-league postseason soon drawing to a close, Montgomery could be making his final start on the farm before being reinstated from the 60-day injured list. Though Montgomery built up to three innings in his previous rehab outing Sept. 4, the Yankees may not be comfortable deploying him in a starting role if he rejoins the roster later this month. Instead, Montgomery is more likely to see usage as a multi-inning reliever as the Yankees look to manage his workload carefully as he returns from June 2018 Tommy John surgery.

September 7, 2019 05:32 PM
Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: May get another rehab start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (shoulder) may start for Double-A Trenton on Tuesday, Matt Kardos of MLB.com reports.

Montgomery has made three minor-league rehab starts thus far, allowing three runs (two earned) in 6.2 innings. He hurled 44 pitches in his last appearance Wednesday, so a Tuesday start in the opener of the Eastern League Championship Series would allow him to work on five days rest and get stretched out a little more. Montgomery is looking at a mid-September return to the Yankees.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Surrenders two runs in rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (shoulder) hurled three innings for Double-A Trenton on Wednesday, giving up two runs on five hits while striking out five.

Montgomery upped his pitch count to 44 -- 34 of which were strikes -- after tossing 35 pitches in his previous outing. The 26-year-old has now made three minor-league rehab starts, allowing a total of three runs (two earned) in 6.2 innings while striking out 10 batters. He remains on track for a possible return to the Yankees in the coming weeks.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Pitches well in second rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (shoulder) pitched 1.2 innings for Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre on Friday, giving up one unearned run on two hits while striking out three.

Montgomery threw 35 pitches in the appearance, 24 of which were strikes, and touched 92 mph on the radar gun, per Randy Miller of NJ.com. The outing was Montgomery's second at the minor-league level as he rehabs from last season's Tommy John surgery and shoulder inflammation that crept up in June. The Yankees have left the door open for Montgomery's possible return to the big club in September.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Moving rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (shoulder) will make his next rehab appearance for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Montgomery was originally scheduled to join Double-A Trenton for his next rehab start, but he'll report to the highest level of the minors instead. The southpaw looked sharp in his first rehab outing over the weekend, firing a pair of perfect innings for High-A Tampa. The Yankees remain optimistic about Montgomery's chances of returning from the injured list sometime in September, likely in a relief role.

August 26, 2019 09:36 PM
Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Taking rehab to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (shoulder) will make his next rehab start for Double-A Trenton, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Montgomery fared well in his last minor-league outing with High-A Tampa on Sunday, tossing two perfect innings. The Yankees have yet to disclose when he'll pitch next, though skipper Aaron Boone did state that he's optimistic about the southpaw's chances of returning from the injured list sometime in September, likely in a bullpen role.
