David Robertson. In fact, there could be another David Robertson in the Yankees’ farm system that is just a phone call away from the bigs, and that is Mark Montgomery.
Yankees Vice President and Director of Amateur Scouting Damon Oppenheimer also praised Montgomery by saying he has a “really sick” swing-and-miss slider, while also having the makeup to close games, according to Jack Curry (HERE). Now, one can say that Oppenheimer is saying that to try to pump up the value of Montgomery so they can flip him in a trade, but at the same time it’s always nice to see the higher-ups in the organization praising someone who can contribute in the near future.
