Aaron Boone Officially Names Yankees' 5th Starter
New York Yankees' manager, Aaron Boone, announced today that Jordan Montgomery will be the Yankees 5th starter.
When asked about Montgomery getting the nod as a SP in the rotation, Boone responded, “I see it as his.” Adding, "I view it as he was very much a frontrunner for that spot. We're really excited about not only the year he put together last year, but where we think he can continue to develop. When I look at him, I look at him as one of our starters."
Montgomery is only 25 years old. Last year, the lefty posted a 9-7 record with a 3.88 ERA with 144 strikeouts in 155.1 innings during his rookie campaign.
