The Arizona Diamondbacks bolstered their starting rotation by signing veteran left-handed pitcher Jordan Montgomery to a one-year deal worth up to $25 million. Details of the deal were revealed on Tuesday, which included a 2025 buyout option.

Montgomery, 31, had a successful run with the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2022 season, posting a 3.42 ERA in 21 starts. After being traded to the Texas Rangers in July, he went 4-2 with a 2.79 ERA over his last 11 starts. His strong performance continued into the postseason, where he went 3-1 and helped the Rangers secure their first World Series title.

With a career ERA of 3.68 and a record of 38-34 in 141 appearances, Montgomery brings valuable experience to the Diamondbacks. He made his major league debut with the New York Yankees in 2017 and was later traded to the Cardinals in 2022. He now joins a rotation that includes pitchers like Zach Gallen, Merrill Kelly, Tommy Henry, Brandon Faadt and Ryne Nelson.

The Diamondbacks will open the season on Thursday, hosting the Colorado Rockies in Phoenix at 10:10 PM EDT. Montgomery’s addition to the team is expected to bolster their pitching staff as they begin their quest for success in the upcoming season.

Montgomery is excited about joining the Diamondbacks and looks forward to contributing to their success this season.

“I’m thrilled to be joining such a talented team,” said Montgomery.

“I believe I can bring some stability and experience to this rotation,” added Montgomery.

With Montgomery on board, the Diamondbacks have added another weapon to their already formidable pitching staff.

“We are excited about what Jordan brings to our team,” said Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazeltine.

“He has proven himself as a reliable starter at every level and we look forward to seeing him succeed with us.”
