Free Mark Montgomery!

He has an insane 114 Ks in 70 IP (29 BBs) so far as a pro, no HRs allowed as of yet. RAB has him as NY's #16 prospect currently, between Betances and DJ Mitchell.

Tony Franklin on Mark Montgomery: "Wow. Yeah, wow."
On whether Montgomery's slider is the same as the one Joba Chamberlain used in 2007, Franklin said ...
"It is. It is, in '07 when Joba was here. No question about it. I try to skirt a lot of issues with you, but yeah, it's every bit as good."

"I don’t know when Montgomery will make his Major League debut, however, if I were Brian Cashman I would have to think long and hard about giving Montgomery a taste of the majors to see if he could be an asset on the postseason roster."

4 more Ks in 2 innings, though, that's 17 in 10 IP in AA now.

Tom Kahnle is another guy that's moving slow as mollases even though he's missing a ton of bats.

Couldn't they release Freddy right now to make room for someone who might help them?
No, I think it's that they don't want to put him on the 40 man roster yet and lose the spot over the winter.

Okay. See your point about not having to put Monty on the 40-man yet and saving that space for someone else.
It's not the spot now that's the problem, it's that if they add him now, they have to keep him there this winter or expose him to other teams, whereas if they don't add him, they can keep someone additional who they'd lose otherwise. Once the season starts, guys can always be stashed on the 60 day DL and it's less of an issue. I am not a fan of this rationale in this case, but I'm pretty sure that's what it is.

And for the hell of it, here is his combined line across all leagues this year (A, AA, AFL):
72.2 37 12 12 26 114, 1.48 ERA, .867 WHIP, and a ridiculous 14.1K/9.

First appearance of 2013, he is starting in AAA:
1 ip, 0 h, 0 r, 0 bb, 1 k. 6 pitches. 5 strikes.

Scoops Bolling in the general prospect thread updating the numbers for us:
Mark Montgomery so far in 2013:
7 IP, 4 hits, 1 ER, 0 BBs, 12 Ks.
Minor league career to date:
99.2 IP, 60 hits, 19 ER, 38 BBs, 162 Ks (401 total batters faced).
Craig Kimbrel career minor league numbers:
151 IP, 74 hits, 31 ER, 95 BBs, 242 Ks.
It is simply unfair that the Yankees will have this kid replacing Rivera.
