Fantasy Impact:

This is a significant blow not only to Montas and the Athletics, but to fantasy owners who had snagged themselves a bona fide ace. Montas has been one of the top starters in the majors so far this season, boasting a 9-2 record with a 2.70 ERA, a 1.12 WHIP and 97 strikeouts in 90 innings. He's eligible to return in time for the final week of the regular season.
