Three days before the season began on March 26, 2019, Jordan Montgomery was placed on the 60-day IL so he could recover from the Tommy John surgery he had in 2018. He would not begin a rehab assignment until August 25 with High-A Tampa. He slowly worked his way through his rehab and was activated on September 4, but was only able to manage four innings before being sent back down for the postseason. Back in 2017, Montgomery looked to be a promising young pitcher. He started 29 games and pitched to a 3.88 earned run average over 155.1 innings. Montgomery never stole the show, he just quietly worked his way through lineups in a fairly average and composed manner reminding fans of Andy Pettitte.
