Why New York Yankees Move to Trade Jordan Montgomery to St. Louis Cardinals Was a Risk

Jordan Montgomery was always going to pitch during this weekend’s series between the Yankees and Cardinals in St. Louis:

It followed his five-day routine in New York’s pitching staff after his latest outing on Sunday against the Royals.

Rather than taking the mound in his road grays, the uniform he’s worn in ballparks away from the Bronx for his entire career, Montgomery will take the field in Cardinal red on Saturday, making his debut for his new squad.

New York traded Montgomery to St. Louis: minutes before the trade deadline on Tuesday, a head-scratching deal that came out of nowhere, sending injured outfielder Harrison Bader back to the Yankees.
