Jordan Blackmon Montgomery, nicknamed “Gumby,” is an American professional baseball pitcher for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball.



He made his MLB debut in 2017. Before his professional career, Montgomery played college baseball for the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Born on December 27, 1992 (age 29 years), in Sumter, South Carolina, in the United States of America Jordan is said to have attended Sumter High School in Sumter, South Carolina.



He played for the school’s baseball team, and was named the state’s player of the year as a senior.

The New York Yankees selected Montgomery in the fourth round, with the 122nd overall selection, of the 2014 Major League Baseball draft.

Montgomery has two older brothers. He earned the nickname “Gumby” in college after a senior baseball player used the moniker to make fun of his long limbs and lack of coordination.
