The Diamondbacks Land a Valuable Addition to their Pitching Staff with the Signing of Jordan Montgomery

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

The Arizona Diamondbacks have secured a valuable addition to their starting rotation by signing left-handed pitcher Jordan Montgomery to a one-year contract worth up to $25 million, with a vesting option for 2025. Montgomery, who has spent the last two seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers, brings seven years of experience and a strong track record to the Diamondbacks’ pitching staff.

During his time with the Cardinals, Montgomery posted a 6-9 record with a 3.42 ERA in his first 21 starts. However, after being traded to the Rangers in July, he went on to post an impressive 4-2 record with a 2.79 ERA in his final 11 starts. Montgomery was instrumental in helping the Rangers secure their first World Series title, going 3-1 in the postseason.

With a career ERA of 3.68 and a record of 38-34 over 141 appearances, Montgomery brings valuable experience and depth to the Diamondbacks’ pitching staff. He made his MLB debut 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 open their season against the Colorado Rockies in Phoenix on Thursday.

Overall, this move is expected to strengthen the Diamondbacks’ pitching rotation and give them more options when it comes to starting games. With Montgomery’s experience and solid performance on the mound, he could prove to be an asset for this team as they look to compete for playoff spots in the future seasons.
