Left-handed pitcher Mike Montgomery (USA), who played for the Samsung Lions in the KBO League in 2021, is heading to Mexico.
MLBTR reported on the 7th (Korean time) that “Montgomery has signed a contract with Acereros de Monclova of the Mexican League.”메이저놀이터 He started his professional career with Kansas City Royals in 2008 and made his big league debut with Seattle Mariners in 2015. After that, he went through the Chicago Cubs, Mets, and New York Yankees. In 2021, after playing in the minor leagues under the New York Mets and New York Yankees, he wore a Samsung uniform in the KBO League as a replacement for Ben Lively, who was released from Samsung in June. During the game, he was dissatisfied with the ball decision and caused controversy by throwing a rosin bag with abusive language at the referee. He left Korea after posting a record of 2-5 with a 5.37 earned run average in 11 appearances. In 2022, he played for the New York Mets’ minor league Triple-A team, but recorded an average ERA of 6 72 in 22 games. After he failed to even get an offseason minor league contract, he seems to have turned to the Mexican League. Acereros de Monclova is the team where Edison Russell, who recently returned to Kiwoom Heroes, was a member.
