  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Anticipates pitching in 2023

    Montas (shoulder) said Wednesday that he remains without a target date to make his 2023 debut, but he still expects to pitch for the Yankees this season, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Montas is now two weeks into his 12-week shutdown from throwing after he underwent right shoulder surgery Feb. 21. Assuming his shoulder has healed as anticipated after the three-month layoff from throwing, Montas will first resume playing catch and gradually ramp up from there. Given that any ramp-up period could last around a month or longer, Montas shouldn't be expected to make his season debut until shortly before or after the All-Star break in a best-case scenario.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Surgery completed

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone confirmed that Montas (shoulder) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his labrum Wednesday, Brendan Kuty of The Athletic reports.

    With Boone relaying that Montas experienced no complications with his surgery, the right-hander will now spend at least the next 12 weeks in recovery mode before he's potentially cleared to resume throwing in late May or early June. Given that Montas will require a prolonged ramp-up period even if his rehab goes according to plan, he may not be a realistic option to make his season debut until around the All-Star break. Expect the Yankees to move Montas to the 60-day injured list as soon as the organization needs to open a spot on the 40-man roster for another player.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Getting shoulder surgery

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone announced Wednesday that Montas will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder on Feb. 21, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Montas underwent several tests to determine what the next step would be, and ultimately a surgical option was deemed to be the best for the right-hander. While the operation will cause him to miss a significant portion of the 2023 campaign, Yankees pitching coach Matt Blake said earlier Wednesday that the surgery isn't necessarily a season-ender. Even if he's able to come back at some point in the second half of the season, the 29-year-old likely won't be worth rostering in all but the deepest or redraft leagues at this stage.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Needs shoulder surgery

    Montas (shoulder) will undergo right shoulder surgery Feb. 21, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Marly Rivera of reports Aaron Boone saying a late-season return is the "best-case scenario" for Montas, who was already expected to miss time with the injury. Even with a smooth rehab and quick build-up, it's unlikely the 30-year-old provides any legitimate fantasy value in 2023.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Still undergoing tests on shoulder

    Yankees pitching coach Matt Blake said Wednesday that Montas (shoulder) is continuing to undergo testing, and a surgical option remains "on the table" for the right-hander, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    Montas has been diagnosed only with right shoulder inflammation at the moment, but the injury is considered serious enough to sideline him for at least the first month of the 2023 season. Further tests will reveal whether Montas will be sidelined beyond April, and a potential surgery could shelve the 29-year-old for a large chunk of campaign, though Blake did note that a procedure wouldn't necessarily be season-ending. Fantasy managers who are considering stashing Montas in a reserve slot will want to keep a keen eye on updates on his status in the coming days.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Battling shoulder inflammation

    Montas is dealing with shoulder inflammation and is expected to miss the first month of the season, Dan Martin and Jon Heyman of the New York Post report.

    Montas struggled to a 6.35 ERA in eight starts for the Yankees after being acquired at the deadline last season, and he developed shoulder issues that wound up limiting him to a single one-inning relief appearance in the playoffs. Those shoulder troubles evidently haven't gone away, and he's reportedly 8-to-10 weeks behind in his offseason program as a result. Domingo German and Clarke Schmidt appear to be the top candidates to open the season as the Yankees' fifth starter in Montas' absence.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Avoids arbitration

    Montas signed a one-year, $7.5 million deal with the Yankees on Friday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of reports.

    Montas was dealt to the Yankees this past season at the trade deadline. Overall, he struggled in his short time with the team, accumulating a 1-3 record, 6.35 ERA and 1.54 WHIP over 39.2 innings. He will look to turn things around in 2023, as he will be a free agent following the season.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Activated for ALCS

    The Yankees have reinstated Montas (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list Wednesday in advance of Game 1 of their American League Championship Series with the Astros.

    Montas was placed on the IL on Sept. 20 with right shoulder inflammation and wasn't able to get ramped up in time to contribute for the Yankees during their five-game American League Division Series with the Guardians. He looks like he'll be healthy enough to pitch during the ALCS, though Montas will presumably be working out of the bullpen to begin the series with Jameson Taillon, Luis Severino, Gerrit Cole and Nestor Cortes likely to form the Yankees' four-man rotation. After being acquired from Oakland on Aug. 1, Montas went 1-3 with a 6.35 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 33:15 K:BB in 39.2 innings over eight outings.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Could be option for ALCS

    Montas (shoulder) has thrown multiple bullpen sessions and will travel to Tampa Bay to face live batting practice, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Montas has been out since late September while dealing with right shoulder inflammation, but the 29-year-old could be an option for the Yankees if they advance to the ALCS. The right-hander is expected to serve as an opener or relief option if he can return.

  • Yankees' Frankie Montas: Plays catch Saturday

    Montas (shoulder) resumed playing catch Saturday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Montas has spent a week and a half on the injured list with right shoulder inflammation and was cleared to throw off flat ground Saturday. Manager Aaron Boone hasn't officially ruled the right-hander out for the ALDS, but he said Saturday that it's more likely that Montas will be able to join the Yankees' bullpen if the team advances to the ALCS.
