Jordan Montgomery is a somewhat youngish, rather tallish lefty callup who throws the standard compliment of spinning baseballs. Per Eno Sarris at FanGraphs, he made his way up in the minors with a wicked slider, which guys in AAA and the majors quickly learned not to swing at. He's getting strikes with his curve, now.
What, exactly, do I need to tell you about Jose Berrios? Nothing. So I won't. You know him as well or better than me. I mean, I know about that incident with the peanut butter and three "escorts," but I'm sworn not to tell. Like, legally. Digits:
Pretty much the same, huh?

Max Kepler has a .417 OPS this year against lefties. OTOH, no Aaron Judge, so we're saved, right? Right?
