Jordan Montgomery shakes off rough third inning to keep Yankees in game

In some ways, Monday night marked Jordan Montgomery’s worst outing of an otherwise stellar season.  The left-hander allowed a season-high five runs — all in a disastrous third inning — against an Athletics lineup that entered the day averaging just 3.18 runs per game, good for 29th-best in MLB.  And yet, in other ways, Montgomery’s final line — which included six strikeouts across 6 ²/₃ innings in the Yankees’ 9-5 comeback victory — could also be in consideration for one of his best.  “He did a great job of buckling down and pitching deep into the game anyway,” manager Aaron Boone said.  With a...

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Coughs up five runs

Montgomery allowed five runs on six hits and a walk over 6.2 innings in Monday's win over Oakland. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision. Montgomery was thrashed for five runs during a disastrous third inning that included a three-run double by Elvis Andrus. After that, he gave up just one hit over his final 3.2 frames. He's allowed nine runs across 12.2 innings over his last two starts, raising his season ERA from 2.72 to 3.27 in the process. Montgomery now owns a 64:14 K:BB through 15 starts. The 29-year-old is lined up to start in Cleveland this weekend.

New York Yankees @ Tampa Bay Rays: Jordan Montgomery vs. Shane Baz

Thanks to Isaac Paredes’ three-home run night, the New York Yankees won’t have the opportunity to use their brooms against the Tampa Bay Rays for the second week in a row. They’ll still have an opportunity to use their shovels, however, as they look to snatch a series win on the road against their divisional rivals tonight at Tropicana Field and continue to bury them deep in the AL East division race.

Jordan Montgomery enjoys Yankees’ run support in latest strong start

TORONTO — Jordan Montgomery spent the better part of last season and early this season pitching well without much run support from his teammates. The Yankees are making up for it in a hurry. The way he is pitching, Montgomery hasn’t needed most of the runs the Yankees have been scoring for him lately, but he wasn’t complaining after a 12-3 win over the Blue Jays on Friday night at Rogers Centre. “I wouldn’t say I ever get used to it, but I love it,” Montgomery said with a chuckle. The left-hander did his part, limiting a potent Blue Jays lineup to two runs...

Yankees vs. Blue Jays odds, prediction, pick: Jordan Montgomery the key

Coming into the 2022 MLB season, the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees were essentially co-favorites to win the AL East. Bookmakers projected the teams to be neck and neck in the race for the division and their win tot Two months into the season and the Yankees have seemingly left the Blue Jays in the dust. The Bombers head to Toronto this weekend with a 10-game lead and are now -550 favorites to win their 20th division title. Things can change quickly in the MLB, but if the Jays want to make this race interesting they’ll need to put...

New York Yankees @ Toronto Blue Jays: Jordan Montgomery vs. Ross Stripling

The AL East isn’t settled yet, but the Yankees were able to take a big bite out of Tampa’s chances of winning the division this week, sweeping them in the Bronx to push them 12 games back. If they can add a sweep of the Blue Jays to the mix, Toronto’s chances of winning the East drastic go down.

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Cruises to third win

Montgomery (3-1) picked up the win in Friday's 12-3 victory over the Blue Jays, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out five. The southpaw tossed only 54 of 93 pitches for strikes but bore down when he needed to, and Montgomery got a chance to relax after the Yankees erupted for an eight-run fifth inning. After settling for no-decisions in eight of his first nine starts, he's now won three of his last four while reeling off five straight quality starts. Montgomery will carry a 2.72 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 56:11 K:BB through 72.2 innings into his next outing.

The reason behind Jordan Montgomery dominating for the Yankees

In 2021 Jordan Montgomery established himself as a solid starter for the Yankees. With a 3.83 ERA, 3.69 FIP, and 4.07 SIERA, he proved he’s more than just a 5 in your rotation. Montgomery had some doubters, but in 2022 he’s proving said doubters wrong. So far this season, he has improved on all of his peripheral and run prevention metrics, all while pitching deeper into games as well. This isn’t some fluke either, while I expect ERA regression from a 2.70 ERA, I also think he ends the season with a better ERA than what he had in 2021, even when adjusting for the low run-scoring environment in 2022. His pitch selection has improved, his stuff is better than ever, and Jordan Montgomery is here to stay.

Yankees’ Jordan Montgomery gives bullpen rest with much-needed gem

It is better to give than to receive … but maybe getting both is best. Just ask Jordan Montgomery, who gave the Yankees just what they needed Saturday night and in return received just what he has been missing. “It was going to be a struggle if we didn’t get a lot of length out of him. That was just what the doctor ordered,” Aaron Boone said after the Yankees’ 8-0 win over the Cubs on Saturday night at the Stadium. “It’s not something you want to lay him on early or tell him about. Just go pitch, but, yeah, I think...

Yankees' Jordan Montgomery: Hurls seven scoreless frames

Montgomery (2-1) earned the win over the Cubs on Saturday, pitching seven scoreless innings and allowing five hits while striking out five. The Yankees offense had little trouble putting runs on the board against Cubs rookie Matt Swarmer, allowing Montgomery to cruise to a stress-free win. He didn't allow any extra-base hits in the contest and prevented any Chicago players from reaching third base. The southpaw has pitched well all season but began the campaign without a win through nine outings. However, he's now picked up a pair of victories over his past three starts, posting a 1.33 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 14:2 K:BB over 20.1 innings during that span.
