Coming into the season easily the biggest question facing the New York Yankees was the starting pitching. CC Sabathia was supposed to be washed up but he's 2-0 with a 1.47 ERA through three starts. Michael Pineda was a wild card at best but after a rough first start, he's 2-1 and flirted with a perfect game. Luis Severino is a 23 year old that some have already labeled a bust but even he has been good. Masahiro Tanaka was the only "sure thing" but even he had his doubters. Those four were the guys guaranteed a spot in the rotation. The Yankees waited until the last possible minute to name their fifth and final starter, Lefty Jordan Montgomery.

The rookie just left his second start with a VERY respectable stat line of 6 innings pitched giving up 3 runs on a home run, 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. This reliable left handed pitcher is exactly what the Yankees needed this season especially with James Kaprilian getting Tommy John Surgery.
