MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reports that Yankees pitcher Jordan Montgomery will undergo Tommy John surgery on Thursday. That will end his 2018 season and likely keep him out for all of the 2019 season as well.
Montgomery, 25, hasn’t pitched since May 1 due to a flexor strain in his left elbow. In six starts prior to the injury, Montgomery posted a 3.62 ERA with 23 strikeouts and 12 walks in 27 1/3 innings.
Domingo Germán took Montgomery’s spot in the rotation last month, but has struggled. In six starts, he has given up 20 runs (19 earned) on 22 hits and 12 walks with 26 strikeouts in 27 innings.
