Los Angeles Dodgers Sign 6-Year Veteran Pitcher

Six-year veteran left-handed pitcher Mike Montgomery has signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to multiple sources.

Montgomery, 34 years old, is determined to make a comeback to the major leagues after his last appearance in 2020.

In recent years, he has faced challenges and struggled to find success both in the MLB and Triple-A. In 2022, he recorded a difficult 6.72 ERA with the New York Mets' Triple-A team and did not make any appearances for a Mexican League club this year, even though he signed with one this season.

However, with his signing, Montgomery now has the opportunity to revive his career by joining the Dodgers' highest affiliate in Oklahoma City.

The Dodgers view him as additional bullpen depth, providing them with more options and flexibility in their pitching staff.

Montgomery will aim to regain his form and work his way back to the big leagues, bolstering the organization's pitching depth for the latter part of the 2023 season.

Over his six-year career, he holds a solid 3.84 ERA, and a 1.35 WHIP, while averaging 6.9 K/9 across 183 appearances and 541 innings of work. Photo Credit: Peter Aiken-USA TODAY Sports
