Frankie Montas News
New York Yankees right-hander Frankie Montas (shoulder) is expected to miss the first month of the regular season in 2023 due to shoulder inflammation that he dealt with at the end of 2022, according to sources. Montas is eight to 10 weeks behind in his offseason training. The 29-year-old missed two weeks with the Oakland Athletics last year and then landed on the injured list on Sept. 20 with the Yankees after eight lackluster outings in pinstripes. The Yanks sent left-handers JP Sears and Ken Waldichuk, along with two minor-leaguers, to acquire Montas and reliever Lou Trivino from the A's at last year's trade deadline. Montas had a 6.35 ERA in 39 2/3 innings in his eight starts for New York in 2022, but they're hoping he'll be an important part of their rotation in 2023 once he returns from his shoulder issues.
The New York Yankees agreed to a one-year, $7.5 million deal with starting pitcher Frankie Montas to avoid salary arbitration on Friday. The Yankees acquired Montas at the trade deadline from the Oakland Athletics last August to beef up their rotation, but the only made eight starts in pinstripes and dealt with a right shoulder issue. He had an ERA over 6.00 in the Bronx and finished 2022 with a combined 5-12 record, 4.05 ERA (3.78 FIP), 1.25 WHIP and 23.4 percent strikeout rate in 144 1/3 innings over 27 starts. With better health in 2023, the 29-year-old right-hander could bounce back for the Yankees and fantasy managers, but it will admittedly be much tougher pitching in Yankee Stadium and the tough American League East for a full season.
New York Yankees pitcher Frankie Montas (shoulder) is on the team's roster for the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros. The starter made eight starts for the American League East club after being acquired from the Oakland Athletics at the trade deadline. The veteran pitched to a 6.35 ERA and a 4.93 FIP in 39.2 innings for New York down the stretch in the regular season. Overall, Montas logged a 4.05 ERA and a 3.79 FIP in 144.1 total innings this season between Oakland and New York. He'll give the team another rotation option alongside the likes of Gerrit Cole, Nestor Cortes, Jameson Taillon, and Luis Severino.
Oakland Athletics pitcher Frankie Montas had a career year in 2021, posting a 13-9 record, a 3.37 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and a 207:57 K: BB over 187 innings. He also held an impressive 10.0 K/9, 14.1 swinging strike percentage, and his fastball averaged 96.4 MPH. Montas finished the season strong by being named the AL Pitcher of the Month in September. The 28-year-old has an elite splitter, which he used 33.6% of the time that helped improve his ERA from 4.72 (April-June) to 2.65 (July-August). His splitter had a whiff rate of 51.4% and put away 26.4% of hitters. Montas is expected to be drafted as a top-25 starter in upcoming 2022 fantasy baseball drafts. The A's right-hander will be second in Oakland's rotation after Chris Bassitt and look to build on his 2021 stellar performance. Steamer projections have Montas 179 innings pitched, 25.4K%, 7.4 BB%, 43.5 GB%, 3.71 ERA, and a 3.75 FIP. According to Rotoballer's Expected Draft Values, the A's ace is roughly fair value at his current NFBC ADP of 78.
