Jordan Montgomery Two Weeks Away From Rejoining The Rotation

Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Jordan Montgomery (knee) is around 12 to 14 days away from returning to the team's starting rotation. Montgomery is likely to return in either the series against the Kansas City Royals or Pittsburgh Pirates after next week's All-Star break. Montgomery helped the Texas Rangers win a World Series championship last fall for the first time in franchise history, but he signed with the D-backs late this spring and just hasn't been right, going 6-5 with a bloated 6.44 ERA (4.44 FIP) and 1.67 WHIP with just 45 strikeouts and 23 walks in 65 2/3 innings over his first 13 starts. The 31-year-old southpaw threw a bullpen session on Tuesday and felt good, though, as he tries to recover from right-knee inflammation. With better health, fantasy managers in deeper leagues will be hoping that Montgomery can right the ship in the second half.

Merrill Kelly, Eduardo Rodriguez, Jordan Montgomery To Throw Bullpens

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said that starting pitchers Merrill Kelly (shoulder), Eduardo Rodriguez (shoulder) and Jordan Montgomery (knee) will all throw bullpen sessions on Tuesday. Kelly will be throwing off a mound for the first time since suffering a right-shoulder strain in April. The 35-year-old has the most fantasy appeal of the trio but may not be ready to rejoin Arizona's rotation until late August. E-Rod has yet to make his D-backs debut in 2024 after injuring his left shoulder in spring training. Montgomery is dealing with a right-knee injury and is eligible to come off the IL on Sunday. Depending on how he fares in his bullpen session, he could return before next week's All-Star break. However, the 31-year-old has been a disaster after getting a late start to the season.

Jordan Montgomery To Throw On Flat Ground On Saturday

Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Jordan Montgomery (knee) will throw on flat ground on Saturday, according to manager Torey Lovullo. Montgomery still has some inflammation in his right knee, but Lovullo said the team is anticipating he'll be good enough to throw on Saturday. The 31-year-old southpaw could start throwing off a mound again soon if his throwing session goes well this weekend, but Montgomery won't rejoin Arizona's starting rotation until after the All-Star break in mid-July. After helping the Texas Rangers win their first-ever World Series championship last fall, Montgomery signed with Arizona late this spring and has been a disaster in his first 13 starts, posting a 6.44 ERA and 1.67 WHIP with 45 K's and 23 walks in 65 2/3 innings. He currently has a career-low 15.1% strikeout rate and has seen his walk rate increase from 4.9% in 2023 to 7.7%.
