Montas was sent for an MRI after the right-hander complained of soreness in his right shoulder, the same shoulder which forced him to miss over two weeks earlier in the season. This after turning in another poor outing Friday against the Milwaukee Brewers in which the 29-year-old allowed four earned runs over 3.1 innings pitched.
Acquired from the Oakland A’s at this year’s trade deadline, Montas has failed to live up to expectations since arriving in New York, compiling a 6.35 ERA, 1.54 WHIP, and a 33:15 strikeout to walk ratio in eight starts (39.2 IP).
Assuming the soreness does not persist, Montas’ next start will likely come during New York’s series against the Boston Red Sox, starting Thursday.
In the meantime, the Yanks will be in action Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates, where New York is listed at -335 on the moneyline per FanDuel Sportsbook.
