2014 Recycled relievers like Chris Bootcheck, Jim Miller, Matt Daley and Mike Zagurski appeared in pinstripes last season, but Montgomery—who was expected to be an important part of the team’s bullpen picture—never made it to New York. The compact righty showed up to spring training out of shape, according to the team, and his velocity was down a few ticks early on, sitting near 89-90. He was effective out of the gate, recording a 1.72 ERA and a 12.6 K/9 rate through May 9th, but he pitched through pain and fell apart after a 3 1/3-inning, 58-pitch appearance on May 12th, posting a 5.06 ERA the rest of the way with six walks per nine. A month after that marathon outing he hit the disabled list with shoulder fatigue, then returned to the DL with shoulder problems twice more before the end of the season. If healthy, the fastball-slider guy could be to David Robertson what Robertson was to Rivera, but there’s now a real risk that he could end up on the sizable pile of failed Yankees pitching prospects.
2013 College closers tend to move quickly after going pro, and Montgomery, the Yankees’ top relief prospect, might be the minor leaguer most likely to make the team in 2013. The 2011 11th-rounder’s stature, strikeout rates, career minor-league home runs allowed (one), rapid rise through the system, and high socks have elicited David Robertson comps, although his breaking ball of choice is a slider, not a curve. That might mean more noticeable platoon splits. Because of his height, Montgomery’s fastball can be flat-planed, but it’s still a plus pitch, and the slider would miss bats in the majors right now. Neither Robertson nor Montgomery has the overpowering fastball the classic closer profile calls for, but the two of them together could give the Yankees an enviable under-30 late-inning duo.
2012 Mark Montgomery's advanced slider led to some sick strikeout rates; in his Sally League debut, he struck out five batters in one inning (with some help from Gary Sanchez's buttered glove).

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What Yankee prospect is most likely to make an eventual impact?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Saying "most likely" puts an interesting twist on the question. Guys like Tyler Austin, Slade Heathcott and Mark Montgomery will all likely have extensive big league careers, but I don't know how impactful those careers will be. I still believe Gary Sanchez's bat can carry him to the Major Leagues and I think there's some hope that he can catch well enough that you live with it because of the impact of his bat. (Mark Anderson)
2013-09-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)What happened to Mark Montgomery? Will he be a solid reliever on the Yankees next year?
(hotstatrat from yesterday)
if he's healthy, sure. But he hasn't been right--spent time on the DL and velocity is down. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-01-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is the Yankee bullpen deep enough to overcome the loss of Soriano?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Thanks for coming back, Alex.

With Mariano Rivera, and David Aardsma and Joba Chamberlain in the mix, I don't think the Yankees will miss Soriano too much, provided that at least two of those three righties are healthy. Also, to throw in a little Top 10 prospect lingo, keep in mind that they have a potential "Factor on the Farm" in Mark Montgomery. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-11-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's wrong with Mike Montgomery? Do you think he will ever be able to make it in the majors as a SP?
(Nils from Stamford)
Well, we're talking about the team of Kyle Davies and Luke Hochevar here. You don't necessarily have to to be a good pitcher to be a Royals pitcher for a long time. So I'll say that he makes it in the sense that he is a major-league starter for a while, but not necessarily a good one. For that, you'll have to wait for the Royals prospect list, which will be out soon.

Since that wasn't a very satisfying answer, I'm just going to pretend you asked about Mark Montgomery instead. In which case: Nothing! Nothing is wrong with Mark Montgomery. (I really like Mark Montgomery, mostly because he reminds me of David Robertson.) (Ben Lindbergh)
