Frankie Montas News
Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Frankie Montas allowed three runs, two earned, across 6 1/3 innings pitched in a loss to the Royals on Thursday. Montas looked good in this one as he racked up eight K's, but he got no run support as Oakland was shut down by Mike Minor. Montas has been a consistent fantasy contributor as he's gone at least five innings in nine straight starts and allowed no more than three runs in any of them. He's sporting a 3.51 ERA with a 3.36 FIP and a 23.8 percent strikeout rate in that span. Montas will look to keep the good times rolling in a home start against the Angels next time out.
Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Frankie Montas allowed three runs in five innings to pick up a victory Friday night at the Rockies. Montas only struck out two, but it was an encouraging start to survive six hits and a walk to escape Coors Field with a win. Montas is now sporting a 6-5 record with a 4.52 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and a 65:18 K:BB in 65 innings pitched. He's not a must-start pitcher in fantasy, but Montas is an attractive option when he has a good matchup. His next start is at home against the Royals making Montas a start-worthy pitcher in that matchup.
Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Frankie Montas had an interesting night for fantasy on Monday as he struck out 11 Mariners despite allowing four runs and taking the loss. Montas lasted six innings and threw 101 pitches, generating an eye-popping 21 swinging strikes. This start blew his ERA up to an unsightly 4.92 but his peripheral metrics indicate he is turning things around. His 11.2 percent swinging-strike rate is in line with his career average and his SIERA is a much more manageable 4.21. Montas is a solid start on Sunday against an Angels lineup that is missing Mike Trout.
It has been a rocky couple of years for Oakland Athletics starting pitcherFrankie Montas, showing signs of brilliance at times but also dealing with a suspension in 2019 and injuries in 2020. His final line for last season was bad, with a 5.60 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. However, it is fair to chalk a lot of that up to a lack of health. Montas was pitching very well before he sustained his back injury, and he still showcased an elite splitter as well as a fastball with great velocity. Those two pitches are a great foundation, and he also has a sinker and slider to mix in with those two offerings. Despite all the issues, Montas has still posted a very strong 3.5 K/BB since 2019. Fantasy managers are showing hesitance to draft him, as he is currently going outside of the top-150 picks (160.09 ADP on NFC). He's only pitched six innings so far in Cactus League play but has looked sharp. He's got a 3.00 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 6:1 K/BB ratio and has induced a ton of swinging strikes with his splitter. He recently told reporters that he's been able to throw all of his offerings for strikes as he's fully recovered from the back issue that plagued him last season. If Montas has a healthy 2021 season, he will likely obliterate his ADP, making him one of the best pitchers to roll the dice on.
