After a brief and underwhelming tenure in the Bronx, Frankie Montas is off the pinstripes and joining the Reds. The right-hander has secured a one-year, $16 million deal to land in Cincinnati.

Due to his struggles to stay healthy in New York, Frankie Montas’ departure is unlikely to elicit tears from Yankees fans. Acquired at the 2022 trade deadline, his eight starts in the Bronx resulted in a disappointing 6.35 ERA, falling short of expectations. A shoulder injury in 2023 kept him on the sidelines for most of the year, with only a few late-season appearances offering glimpses of a potential return to form.

A collective exhale of relief reverberated through the Bronx upon hearing the news of Frankie Montas’ departure to Cincinnati. Fans, who were apprehensive about the prospect of a reunion with the underwhelming pitcher, can now shift their focus to more promising avenues—specifically, the starting pitching trade market.

The memories of Frankie Montas’ brief and lackluster tenure in pinstripes, marked by a 6.35 ERA in 2022 and a shoulder injury in 2023, lingered in the minds of many Yankees faithful. The mere mention of GM Brian Cashman considering his return was enough to send shivers down their spines.
