Report: Reds agree to deal with RHP Montas
The Yankees acquired him from the Oakland Athletics the season before in a trade that sent four prospects back to the A’s. Montas started eight games for the Yankees down the stretch in 2022, struggling to a 6.35 ERA.
Montas spent the previous six seasons in Oakland, finishing sixth in American League Cy Young voting in 2021 after turning in a 3.37 ERA in 32 starts. He began his big league career with the Chicago White Sox in 2015 but ended with the Los Angeles Dodgers in a three-team trade also involving the Cincinnati Reds. The Sainagua, Dominican Republic native was dealt again in 2016, this time going from the Dodgers to the A’s along with highly-touted pitching prospect Jharel Cotton in exchange for outfielder Josh Reddick and left-hander Rich Hill.
