Which rookies made the biggest fantasy impact this season? Hot off the press, here’s my All-Rookie Team article.
Due to space constraints, only one starting pitcher, Luis Castillo, was discussed in the article. But fear not. Below are four more starting pitchers to fill out the rotation. All stats are accurate as of Wednesday morning.
Jordan Montgomery: Named the Yankees’ fifth starter following an impressive spring training, Montgomery has turned in a steady rookie campaign, posting a 3.96 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP and a 8.5 K/9 rate in 28 starts. The fact that Montgomery’s second-half ERA (4.45) is significantly higher than his first-half mark (3.65) is a bit concerning. But the 24-year-old southpaw is ending the season on a positive note, pitching to a 2.70 ERA in four September outings. Although Montgomery lacks ace-level upside, he’s still a quality late-round target in drafts next spring.
