Jordan Montgomery will start on Tuesday against the Atlanta Braves in the Bronx.
Montgomery is coming off a shaky start in Philadelphia on August 6th when he gave up five runs on six hits over four innings. Through two starts this year he has a 1-1 record with a 5.59 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP across 9.2 innings. He doesn't offer much steaming appeal against an Atlanta lineup that can cause a lot of damage.
Jordan Montgomery suffered the loss against Philadelphia on Thursday, pitching four innings and allowing five runs on six hits and one walk while striking out two.
Montgomery is now 1-1 after two starts with a 5.59 ERA. The 27-year-old righty isn't likely to take the mound again until next weekend against Boston. Montgomery is only worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues.
Jordan Montgomery (1-0) allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out four over 5 2/3 innings as he earned the win Friday against the Red Sox.
Montgomery made his first start of the season and looked great on the mound. The 27-year old lefty's next start should come Wednesday in Baltimore and he should be picked up in all 12 team leagues and deeper if he is on the waiver wire.
Manager Aaron Boone said Jordan Montgomery will start the sixth game of the season, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Montgomery was limited to just two appearances in 2019 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he looked sharp during camp and isn't expected to face any restrictions during the abbreviated 2020 campaign. The 27-year-old lefty is worth an add in deeper fantasy formats.
Jordan Montgomery was optioned to the team's alternate training site Tuesday according to the Yankee's website.
This was a surprise move as Montgomery was expected to begin the season in the Yankees' rotation, but instead, he won't be included on the 30-man roster to open the season. The 27-year-old could still join the rotation early in the season, but until he's recalled or the team provides more information, his immediate outlook remains uncertain.
