Jordan Montgomery set to make Yankees history when he pitches against them


Jordan Montgomery is set to take the ball for the Cardinals on Saturday with his former Yankees coming to town for a three-game series.

With that start, the former New York lefty will do something that has never been done in the history of the Yankee franchise.

As noted by James Smyth of the YES Network, Montgomery will become the first pitcher in Yankees history to make a start for the Yanks before having his next start come against the Bombers, which is exactly what Montgomery will to after he was trade to St. Louis just before the trade deadline on Tuesday.

The Montgomery trade was met by confusion to many fans, who questioned the move that seemingly thinned the starting pitching depth for a rotation currently filling with question marks due to injury or declining production. Those fans won’t have to wait long at all to get a look at what the team parted with in Montgomery, who had been with the organization for his entire big-league career.
