Cubs | Mike Montgomery to pitch out of 'pen

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 10:16:36 -0700

Chicago Cubs RP Mike Montgomery will pitch out of the bullpen for the Cubs. He's holding left-handed hitters to a .164 average this year and has a nice 2.34 ERA in 32 games (30 relief outings for the Seattle Mariners). Montgomery is a former first-round pick of the Kansas City Royals, and manager Joe Maddon described him as a "big left-hander with a very good arm."

Fantasy Tip: The Cubs have been lacking a solid lefty reliever in their bullpen this year, so Montgomery is a nice fit. He had a nice run in Seattle's rotation last year, but he's unlikely to make an impact there with the Cubs. For that reason his fantasy value is very limited aside from the deepest of leagues for his nice ratios.

Mariners | M's trade for Dan Vogelbach

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:02:23 -0700

The Seattle Mariners acquired C Dan Vogelbach and P Paul Blackburn from the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 20, in exchange for SP Mike Montgomery, according to a source. A Class AAA pitcher is also headed to the Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Vogelbach was being eyed by multiple clubs this week, and he fits much better in the American League as a first baseman/DH type anyway. The lefty slugger was sporting a .972 OPS with 16 homers and 64 RBI at Class AAA Iowa and should be an attractive stash option for dynasty owners if they have the room. Montgomery, a lefty, had a decent run with Seattle as a starter this year and is versatile in a starting or relieving role. He could become a matchup play in deeper leagues later this year or in 2017 if he lands in a starting role for the Cubbies.

Mariners | Mike Montgomery to start Sunday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 07:11:07 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery is scheduled to start against the Houston Astros Sunday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: Montgomery pitched well in his other start before the All-Star break and is receiving at least one more start. He should be a short-term option in AL-only leagues but may not be a great option in mixed leagues.

Mariners | Mike Montgomery delivers in spot start

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 16:46:25 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery picked up the win in his first start of the season, allowing one run on five hits while striking out three over 6 1/3 innings against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Montgomery may have earned himself another start or two after the All-Star break. He should head back to the bullpen when Seattle's rotation is healthy, but he could make a decent DFS sleeper in the meantime.

Mariners | Mike Montgomery starting Sunday

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 14:02:27 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Mike Montgomery is starting against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, July 10, after scheduled starter Taijuan Walker (foot) was placed on the disabled list Wednesday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Montgomery's first start of the season, so he's unlikely to pitch deep into the game in what will likely resemble a bullpen outing for Seattle. He could be worth a flier in daily contests, but there is very little upside with Montgomery.

Mariners | Two SEA hurlers have innings limits

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 18:12:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners SPs Taijuan Walker and Mike Montgomery are expected to be shut down soon because they are close to reaching club targets for their maximum number of innings.

Fantasy Tip: It is currently unknown how many innings Walker ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) and Montgomery ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) will be allowed to throw before they will be shut down. Walker is 8-7 with a 4.60 ERA through 141 innings this season, while Montgomery is 4-6 with a 4.16 ERA through 88.2 innings.

Mariners | Mike Montgomery tagged with loss

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 17:56:13 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery (4-6) allowed three runs on six hits over six innings in a loss to the Texas Rangers Wednesday, Aug. 19, with four walks and three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Although his numbers since the All-Star break still remain unsightly, Montgomery ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has tossed three quality starts in his last five outings. That being said, he has not recorded a victory in his last eight starts. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Oakland Athletics Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Mariners | Mike Montgomery struggling lately

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:21:37 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery allowed eight runs (six earned) on six hits in just 2 2/3 innings to the Detroit Tigers in his last start, and he is 0-2 with a 9.27 ERA in his last three starts. Montgomery is 4-4 with a 3.25 ERA in 10 starts for the Mariners this year.

Fantasy Tip: Montgomery ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) will probably be overlooked by many in daily games because of his poor outings recently. Avoiding him again against Arizona might be wise, too, since the D-backs rank in the top 10 in OPS against lefties (.726) and on the road (.708) this season.

Mariners | Mike Montgomery suffers loss Wednesday

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 19:40:07 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery (4-4) allowed eight runs (six earned) on six hits over 2 2/3 innings in a loss to the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, July 22, with five walks and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: After getting off to a strong start this year, Montgomery ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is 0-2 with a 9.22 ERA in his last three starts, so avoid using him for the foreseeable future in FantasyScore.

Mariners | Mike Montgomery to open second half

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 16:20:47 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery will start Friday, July 17, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Montgomery ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) posted an impressive 2.29 ERA through eight starts in the first half, but his 4.16 xFIP makes him a sell-high player. Owners should try packaging Montgomery with other players in an attempt to upgrade their roster. He should be faded on FantasyScore against the Yankees in New York.
