Montgomery's track record in the SEC pushes him up some draft boards in spite of pedestrian stuff. He stepped into South Carolina's weekend rotation as a freshman, helping the Gamecocks reach their third straight College World Series finals in 2012. He replaced Michael Roth as the Gamecocks' ace in 2013, posting a 1.48 ERA that ranked 11th in the nation. He hadn't been quite as good this year but still ranked second in the Southeastern Conference with 60 strikeouts in 65 innings. Montgomery is no power pitcher, despite his 6-foot-5, 225-pound frame. At his best he locates an 88-92 mph fastball, though he often parks more at 89-90. When he locates his fastball inside, he's able to pitch away with his above-average changeup. It's his best pitch thanks mostly to his exceptional feel for it. He has a fringy, slow curveball and has mixed in a cutter to give hitters a different look.
