Diamondbacks and LHP Jordan Montgomery reach one-year deal

The Arizona Diamondbacks have acquired veteran left-handed pitcher Jordan Montgomery on a one-year contract worth up to $25 million. Details of the contract, which includes a vesting option for 2025, were revealed on Tuesday.

Montgomery, 31, has had a successful career in Major League Baseball and brings valuable experience to the Diamondbacks. He previously played for the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers, where he had impressive runs in both seasons. In 2022 with the Cardinals, he posted a 3.42 ERA over 21 starts and went 4-2 with a 2.79 ERA in his final 11 starts with the Rangers, helping them win their first World Series title.

The addition of Montgomery to the team’s starting rotation will provide depth and valuable experience to an already impressive roster that includes Zac Gallen, Merrill Kelly, Tommy Henry, Brandon Pfaadt, and Ryne Nelson. With a career ERA of 3.68 and a record of 38-34 over 141 appearances, Montgomery is sure to be an asset to the Diamondbacks as they pursue success in the upcoming season.

The Diamondbacks will kick off their season on Thursday at Phoenix when they host the Colorado Rockies at 10:10 p.m., EDT.
