Montgomery is the latest righthander out of Division II pitching factory California Baptist. He earned all-star honors in the Cape Cod League last summer and had the helium to go in the top five rounds this spring before poor fastball command hampered him in a middling junior season. Montgomery has an appealing pitcher's body at 6-foot-5, 200 pounds and his best offering is a Lance McCullers-esque power curveball that reaches 87 mph. It's an easy plus pitch with two-plane life, depth and the ability to draw swings and misses from even the best hitters. Montgomery can't always showcase his curveball as often as he would like because he has trouble getting ahead in the count with his 90-93 mph fastball, giving him a high walk rate and running up his pitch counts. Montgomery projects as a reliever with his two-pitch mix and lack of control. His power curveball is a weapon that will carry him.
