Zack Britton was the Yankees’ most valuable bullpen arm

Zack Britton was the Yankees’ most valuable bullpen arm

Photo by Christian Petersen/ This is undoubtedly the best we’ve seen from the lefty reliever in pinstripes Thursday night was one of the most impressive pitching displays from the Yankees all season. Jordan Montgomery exceeded all expectations, giving the Bombers four priceless innings of three-hit, one-run ball. The bullpen stepped up with the season on the line and gave an all-time performance, allowing only a single baserunner on an Aroldis Chapman walk, while striking out seven. Zack Britton was the most lockdown of the three arms to come in, and it’s his contributions that I’d...

Jordan Montgomery proved the doubters wrong

Jordan Montgomery proved the doubters wrong

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Hallelujah! Jordan Montgomery’s Hail Mary thrusts the Yankees’ into a winner-take-all Game 5. Forgive me Monty, for I have sinned. The day before the end of the regular season, I morbidly discussed the Yankees’ winnowing potential starters in the heart of a playoff series with a friend of mine, even more fervently devoted to the Bronx club. We laughed away the seemingly inevitable tragedy of what we deemed a worst-case scenario: Jordan Montgomery starting an elimination game. In fact, I even said I’d quit writing for Pinstripe Alley if the...

NYY News: In Cole We Trust

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports It’s Gerrit Cole on the hill and everything on the line as the ALDS matchup between the Yankees and Rays goes the distance; Giancarlo Stanton has been murdering baseballs; Ceterum autem Lemahieu iterum emptus est. New York Post | George A. King III: Thanks to Jordan Montgomery, Chad Green, Zack Britton, and Aroldis Chapman, the Yankees have clawed their way back into contention, and have gotten the ball to Gerrit Cole for tonight’s Game Five. Cole, who will be pitching on three days’ rest for the first time in his career, will go up against Tyler...

Yankees Highlights: The pitching finally arrives

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The Yankees needed a big performance from their staff to get the ball back to Gerrit Cole, and they got it. The Yankees stared down the end of their season tonight, and held off elimination for at least one more day. After getting poor pitching from their higher-rated starters in Masahiro Tanaka and J.A. Happ and inconsistent results from the bullpen, it all came together in Game Four. New York won 5-1, and they will force a winner-take-all Game Five. Winners of the Game Raise your hand if you hand Jordan Montgomery as the second-most important starter for...

NYY vs. TB: Jordan Montgomery vs. Ryan Thompson

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ If the Yankees can pull their season back from the brink, they have Cole waiting for Game Five Win or go home: that’s the uncomfortable position the Yankees find themselves in ahead of their Game Four ALDS matchup against the Tampa Bay Rays. If the Yanks can battle their way to a win, they’ll be able to hand the ball to ace Gerrit Cole (albeit on short rest) in a decisive Game Five on Friday. But first, they’ll need help from lefty starter Jordan Montgomery and the host of relievers they’ll likely deploy Thursday night. Montgomery, who last pitched two...

Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery effectively uses three pitches

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ Facing elimination, the Yankees will turn their fate over to 27 year old starter Jordan Montgomery. The young lefty’s major league career got off to a promising start in 2017, when he posted a 3.88 ERA over 155 innings, with peripherals that lagged behind that gaudy mark, but were still very solid for a 24 year old pitching in the majors. He then injured his elbow in 2018, eventually requiring Tommy John surgery. In what is essentially his first “full” season back, Montgomery now holds a 5.11 ERA over 44 innings, but his peripherals (2.87 FIP, 3.65 xFIP) are...

Which relievers are available for the Yankees and Rays tonight?

Photo by Alex Trautwig/MLB Photos via Tonight’s game will likely be dictated by the relief pitchers of both teams. Who should we expect to see on the mound tonight? Chances are, even if tonight’s game occurred in the middle of July, bullpen performance on both sides would factor heavily into the game’s results. Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery went fewer than 5 innings in 5 of his 10 starts this season (and threw 6 innings only once), while the Rays, as of 10:00 PM EDT last night, have not even announced a starter! In October, with elimination on the table, that tendency will be...

I’m excited to go out there and pitch.” The hopes of the Yankees’ season will rest on if he can keep things...

Jordan Montgomery to start for Yankees in Game 4 of ALDS

His first postseason appearance could come with a chance to get the Yankees to the ALCS — or with the season on the line.

The Yankees should use Jordan Montgomery as a lefty specialist

Photo by Adam Hunger/ Without a spot in the starting rotation, Jordan Montgomery can aggressively be used as a lefty specialist in the ALDS. The format of the 2020 playoffs and its lack of off-days changes how teams approach their five-game series. It is almost certain that the Yankees, and perhaps every other team, will turn back to their Game One starter if faced with a winner-take-all game. This frees up the team’s fifth starter for work out of the bullpen, and each team will have to make a decision on how best to employ that player. In the case of the Yankees, that player is...
