He had another tremendous performance on a huge platform on September 19th, when he won the Triple-A National Championship Game for the Pacific Coast League against the Memphis Redbirds.
The victory came in a rare relief appearance, as he pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings in Durham’s 5-3 victory. In 26 games between Montgomery and Durham, he went 13-9 with a 3.49 ERA and 172 strikeouts in 136 2/3 innings.
On February 22, 2018, he developed a right forearm injury during one of his first pitching practices of spring training. It was quickly determined that he had a torn ulnar collateral nerve, necessitating Tommy John surgery and ending his season.
He cracked a bone in his right elbow during a bullpen session in June of 2019, while recovering at the Rays’ minor league facilities in Port Charlotte, FL, and had to have another round of surgery.
Although he was at the Rays’ secondary training site and was on their playoff player list, he was never activated due to the Coronavirus epidemic, which wiped out the 2020 minor league season.
As a result, he hadn’t pitched competitively in three and a half years when he eventually pitched one inning against the Boston Red Sox in a Grapefruit League game for the Rays in spring training on March 22, 2021.
