Mike Montgomery – Not

It has actually been a horrid two weeks for Monty. The 26-year-old southpaw was publicly criticized by Lloyd McClendon following his start last weekend for shaking off too many signs. In his lone start this week, Montgomery allowed 9 runs on 10 hits across 2.1 innings. He fanned 1, walked 1 and surrendered 2 home runs.

Much like Robinson Cano, Mike Montgomery’s season has been wildly inconsistent. Monty went 4-2 and posted a 1.62 ERA through his first 7 big league starts. However, he has gone 0-3 with a 7.99 ERA in the 7 starts since.

I do not envision McClendon replacing the young southpaw in the starting rotation anytime soon, but hopefully Montgomery can get back on track this week.
