Yankees’ Jordan Montgomery leaves start early with elbow tightness

New York Yankees pitcher Jordan Montgomery was forced to leave his start on Tuesday with an elbow injury.

Montgomery was making his sixth start of the season. However, he was removed from the New York’s game against the Houston Astros after just seven pitches due to elbow tightness. He was replaced by Domingo German.

Montgomery, 25, made 29 starts last season and pitched to a 3.88 ERA over 155.1 innings. In his first five starts this season he has a 3.77 ERA in 26.1 innings. He had pitched a scoreless first inning against Houston before exiting.

Yankees’ Jordan Montgomery hit in head with baseball during batting practice (Video)

The New York Yankees got a rather big scare on Saturday after pitcher Jordan Montgomery was hit with a baseball during batting practice.

YES Network caught the video of Montgomery being hit in the head by an errant line drive during batting practice.

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Montgomery appears to be okay.

It’s been a rough week for the Yankees, who have lost six of ten since a big trade deadline move and saw Masahiro Tanaka land on the disabled list earlier Saturday.
