2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

It might be wise just to think of Montas as a relief pitching prospect at this point. He has been traded three times and will not turn 24 until March 21, so several teams have likely come to this conclusion. The A's should reach the same verdict, if they have not already. Montas has a starter's frame, an 80-grade fastball, a plus slider, and a solid changeup. However, he has not thrown enough strikes to make it as a starter to this point, and with the tools in place to be a high-leverage reliever, a transition to the bullpen should be forthcoming. He was touching 102 mph in the Arizona Fall League, so he could take his fastball and slider to the bullpen on Opening Day and lay waste. Unfortunately, it is unclear how the A's will proceed with Montas, as they only recently acquired him from the Dodgers and may want to try their hand at developing him as a starter. If the transition to the 'pen does happen, however, Montas has the stuff to be a top-10 fantasy closer.

2016

While the hard-throwing righty cruised through Double-A, compiling a 2.97 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 108 strikeouts in 112 innings as a 22-year-old, he is not yet a finished product. Montas sits at 96-97 mph with his fastball and can reach back and touch 100 at times. However, he is a two-pitch pitcher right now, as he also throws a plus slider about 40 percent of the time. He did not need to use his changeup (a fringe average offering) to dominate the Southern League, but he will need it to get lefties out on a consistent basis in the big leagues. Montas could get that chance at some point in 2016, possibly right out of camp, though he will first have to make an impression on his new coaches with the Dodgers. He has the ceiling of a No. 2 starter and the floor of a high-leverage reliever.

2015

Montas was one of the lesser-known players included in the Jake Peavy trade of 2013, but he finally harnessed his triple-digit fastball in 2014 and shot up the White Sox's organizational ranks. That fastball, along with a very good slider, helped him to a 4:1 K:BB ratio at High-A before a late-season promotion to Double-A and an appearance in the Arizona Fall League. He could compete for a bullpen spot as soon as 2015, but his ETA could be prolonged if the White Sox decide to give him a longer look as a starter.

2013

Montas, 20, was undrafted international free agent. He has a sturdy frame, one conducive to producing good velocity on his fastball (96-to-100 mph). The heater will get him by at the lower levels, but he'll need to learn to control and command it better as he moves up. Cleaning up his delivery is also must. Montas is working on a slider that shows promise, while his changeup shows little deception at this point in his career. He's bypassing short-season Lowell to open 2013 with the full-season Low-A Greenville Drive.
