Montgomery Bolsters Diamondbacks’ Starting Rotation with One-Year Deal Worth Up to $25 Million

Diamondbacks sign one-year contract with left-handed pitcher Jordan Montgomery

The Arizona Diamondbacks have bolstered their starting rotation by inking a one-year deal with left-handed pitcher Jordan Montgomery. The agreement is worth up to $25 million and includes an option to vest in 2025.

Montgomery, a seven-year veteran, has extensive experience in the MLB. He spent last season with the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers. In his first 21 starts with the Cardinals, he posted a 6-9 record with a 3.42 ERA. After being traded to the Rangers in July, he went 4-2 with a 2.79 ERA over his final 11 starts. Montgomery played a crucial role in helping the Rangers secure their first World Series title, going 3-1 in the postseason.

With a career 3.68 ERA and a 38-34 record over 141 appearances, Montgomery brings valuable experience to the Diamondbacks’ pitching staff. He made his MLB debut in 2017 with the New York Yankees before being traded to the Cardinals in 2022.

Montgomery will join a strong rotation that features pitchers like Zac Gallen, Merrill Kelly, Tommy Henry, Brandon Pfaadt, and Ryne Nelson. The Diamondbacks kick off their season against the Colorado Rockies on Thursday in Phoenix.
