Diamondbacks and LHP Jordan Montgomery reach one-year deal

The Arizona Diamondbacks have signed veteran left-handed pitcher Jordan Montgomery to a one-year contract worth up to $25 million, bringing more depth to their starting rotation. The details of the contract, which includes a vesting option for 2025, were revealed on Tuesday.

Montgomery, 31, has played for several Major League Baseball teams in his career. He previously played with the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers. In the 2022 season, Montgomery had a successful run with the Cardinals, posting a 3.42 ERA over 21 starts before being traded to the Rangers in July. There he went 4-2 with a 2.79 ERA in his final 11 starts and helped the team secure their first World Series title in the postseason with his strong performance.

With a career ERA of 3.68 and a record of 38-34 over 141 appearances, Montgomery brings valuable experience to the Diamondbacks’ pitching staff. He made his major league debut with the New York Yankees in 2017 and was later traded to the Cardinals in 2022 before joining the Diamondbacks this season. Montgomery will join a rotation that includes pitchers such as Zac Gallen, Merrill Kelly, Tommy Henry, Brandon Pfaadt, and Ryne Nelson as they kick off their season on Thursday against Colorado Rockies at Phoenix at 10:10 p.m., EDT
