Montas had a terrible 2020 season, but it was more than likely due to a back injury he suffered early on which probably bothered him throughout the year. Montas started off with four excellent starts (four runs and 22 strikeouts in 23 innings) before he was scratched with back tightness and returned with lower velocity. Yes, he had the PED suspension in 2019, but Montas's splitter was, and should continue to be when a healthy, a dominant pitch, and a healthy season should mean a return to being a starter you can "set and forget." If he can ever get away from throwing his sinker so much, and incorporate more of his splitter and/or four-seam fastball, he could be a monster. Montas was diagnosed with COVID-19 right at the start of spring training, so monitor his recovery as you move closer to draft day.

Frankie Montas 'feeling better'

Frankie Montas is 'feeling better' after testing positive for COVID-19. He stated that he is close to full strength, and that he expects to get back into pitching shape relatively quickly.

Fantasy Impact

Montas was a popular bounceback candidate prior to testing positive for COVID, but it sounds like he is progressing well and should be ready for Opening Day. Expect a season somewhere between his phenomenal 2019 (2.63 ERA) and his disappointing 2020 (5.60 ERA).
