The New York Yankees have suffered a tough loss in their rotation, due to the injury of starting pitcher Jordan Montgomery and because of this, the Bronx team is now more in need than ever of reinforcing their rotation in order to face Montgomery's absence.
According to information from Bob Nightengale of the USA Today, the player will undergo Tommy John surgery and will not be available for the rest of the campaign.
The left-hander of the Yankees made 6 starts and has a 3.62 ERA with 2 wins. The Yankees already seemed more than in need for reinforcements for the starting rotation, having faced numerous inconsistencies and lows from some of their pitchers through the season
The New York team has already been linked to names like Cole Hamels, Chris Archer J.A. Happ. The Yankees have tried to stay below the salary limit so they would seek not to spend more than 12 million dollars.
