Yankees' Frankie Montas heading for MRI on his shoulder

·1 min read

Frankie Montas, who is coming off another disappointing loss on Friday night, was sent for an MRI on his right shoulder Saturday afternoon.

The right-hander, who has a 6.35 ERA with the Yankees in eight starts, has been a disappointment since the Bombers acquired him from the A’s at the trade deadline.

Montas told the YES Network that he woke up with a little bit of an “impingement” on Friday. Montas missed from July 3-21 with a shoulder issue while with the A’s. He returned to make two starts with Oakland before the Yankees traded for him.

The 29-year-old, who is under team control next year as well, allowed four runs in just 3 1/3 innings of work Friday night in the Yankees’ 7-6 loss to the Brewers.
