Last winter, Baseball America ranked pitcher Mike Montgomery as the Royals No. 1 prospect. A supplemental pick in 2008, the Royals obviously have high hopes for him.â†µ
And since it's the Royals, and they have high hopes for him, of course he lands on the DL. Per Bob Dutton of the Star:â†µ
Royals put LHP prospect Mike Montgomery back on DL at Class AA Northwest Arkansas following a recurrence of elbow soreness.â†µ
Ugh. This originally came up at the end of May. This isn't a catastrophe by any means but any arm injuries to a pitcher should be carefully monitored.â†µ
Montgomery, by the way, is doing pretty well. Over 10 starts in A and AA, he has a ERA just over two with five wins and just one loss.
