Frankie Montas, Oakland Athletics, is one of the most prominent names in the MLB trading market. Many teams are interested in the star right-handed pitcher, including the New York Mets and New York Yankees. Check out the top new bookmakers for betting on baseball.
It’s easy for contending teams to look at Montas, who has a 3.18 ERA, a 1.14 WHIP and struck out 109 hitters over 104.2 innings pitched. Montas, 29, has been a solid pitcher for the Oakland Athletics over his last few years. He even had a sub-3.5 ERA in his last four seasons.
According to some reports, certain teams may want to add Montas before the trade deadline. It will be interesting to see the asking price, but it is likely that teams are willing pay top-of-the line starters.
According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post,
“The Mets would not shun rotation protection. But they are not nearly as hungry to add there as the Yankees and certainly not as much as the Blue Jays, Cardinals, Twins and a few other contenders. St. Louis had been hoping that Luis Castillo would go to the Yankees, for example, knowing the Reds would not trade him in the division to the Cardinals and that would take the Yankees out of the market, particularly for Oakland’s Frankie Montas.
Currently, Montas and if the Giants move him, Carlos Rodon fit the top rung of available starters — unless Ohtani actually gets moved (and there was large doubt about that). The Mets potentially hurt the value of Pablo Lopez enough on Sunday (12 hits and six runs in 2 ²/₃ innings) to convince the already hesitant Marlins from trading the righty.”
The Oakland Athletics should be able to get back a hefty return and help speed up their rebuild process. If the A’s can get a haul as the Cincinnati Reds did for Luis Castillo, they would be crazy not to do it.
