The Yankees reportedly signed LHP Mike Montgomery.
Montgomery will be a depth piece in New York. The lefty didn't make the Mets' roster out of spring training but he'll have more opportunities with the Yankees.
The Toronto Blue Jays have recently checked in on free agent pitcher Mike Montgomery.
Montgomery was recently released by the New York Mets after struggling this spring. The left-hander has a lifetime 3.84 ERA with the Mariners, Cubs and Royals. It is unclear how much interest there is with Toronto, but they are at least somewhat interested. Montgomery has experience as both a starter and reliever out of the bullpen.
Free agent LHP Mike Montgomery signed a minor-league deal with the New York Mets, per beat writer Tim Healey.
Montgomery only threw 5 1/3 innings with Kansas City in 2020 due to a lat injury. In last full season, 2019, he put up a 4.95 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, and 69:34 K/BB ratio across 91 innings between the Cubs and Royals. He'll fight for a roster spot with the Mets this spring and could latch on as a starter or a long reliever.
Mike Montgomery has been transferred to the 60-day IL with a lat strain.
Monty was placed on the 10-day IL in late July but the transfer to the 60-day essentially ends his season. He only made one start this year, going 2.0 innings while giving up five runs on five hits against the Detroit Tigers.
The Royals placed LHP Mike Montgomery on the 10-day IL with a lat strain.
It's unclear how serious the injury is. Of course, there was little interest here for fantasy purposes to begin with. Montgomery allowed five runs (three earned) over two innings on Monday.
