MLB Rumors: Jordan Montgomery "In Talks" With AL East Team

Amidst the setback of missing out on Blake Snell, the New York Yankees have swiftly reconnected with their former pitcher, Jordan Montgomery.

Reports indicate ongoing discussions between the Yankees and Montgomery's agent, Scott Boras, highlighting a potential reunion between the left-hander and his former team.

With Gerrit Cole's injury sidelining him for an extended period, the Yankees are actively exploring options to bolster their pitching rotation, recognizing Montgomery's proven track record and postseason experience as valuable assets.

Montgomery, who initially debuted with the Yankees and spent six seasons with the team, has garnered attention for his impressive performances in recent years.

Over his first six MLB seasons, spent with the Yankees, the 31-year-old posted a 3.94 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, with 478 strikeouts across 502.2 innings and 98 appearances.

After successful stints with the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers, where he notably excelled on the mound, Montgomery emerges as a compelling option to provide depth and stability to the Yankees' pitching lineup.

Since leaving the Yankees, Montgomery's game has soared to new heights, recording a 3.20 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, with 166 strikeouts across 188.2 innings and 32 starts.

His familiarity with the organization coupled with his demonstrated ability to deliver in crucial moments make him a significant target for the Yankees as they seek to navigate challenges and maintain competitiveness during Cole's absence.
