Reports: D-backs sign LHP Jordan Montgomery to 1-year deal

The Arizona Diamondbacks and free agent left-handed pitcher Jordan Montgomery agreed to a one-year contract worth $25 million on Tuesday, multiple media outlets reported.

The deal also reportedly includes a vesting option for $25 million for the 2025 season.

Montgomery, 31, was one of the biggest names left on the market before the baseball season begins Thursday. He and Blake Snell, both clients of agent Scott Boras, were unsigned deep into March before Snell recently signed with the San Francisco Giants and Montgomery joined Arizona in the same division.

Montgomery was traded from the St. Louis Cardinals to the Rangers at last year’s deadline, and he started five playoff games (six total appearances) for Texas, including Game 2 of the World Series against the Diamondbacks. He went 3-1 with a 2.90 ERA during the postseason run.

In seven major league seasons with the New York Yankees (2017-22), Cardinals (2022-23) and Rangers, Montgomery is 38-34 with a 3.68 ERA, 705 strikeouts and 207 walks across 755 innings. In the 2023 regular season, he went 10-11 with a 3.20 ERA in 32 starts.
