The Yankees’ trade deadline extension comes to save New York on Sunday

One of the newcomers to the New York Yankees is scheduled to make his debut for the team on Sunday against the St. Louis Cardinals.

After the All-Star break, the New York Yankees have slipped back into reality and lost 9 out of 15 games on Saturday night. They began their away series against the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 on Friday after reliever Clay Holmes conceded a two-run game-winning double to Paul DeJong in the last inning of the eighth.

The Yankees need to get back on track, and luckily for them, one of their big trade-dead acquisitions debuts with the team on Sunday.

Manager Aaron Boone announced that pitcher Frankie Montas will start his first game with the Yankees on Sunday, where he is expected to arrive the night before.

Montas’ debut could not have come at a better time. The starters have had some troubles of late, the most notable being Gerrit Cole, who gave up six runs with three homers in the first inning of New York’s 7-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners on Aug. 3.

As of the deadline, Montas started the season as one of the top pitching targets. He missed a short period after dealing with a right shoulder infection. Upon his return, Montas showed that the injury did not affect his pitching speed and therefore the competition to win it on time.

The Yanks acquired Montas and Lou Trivino from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for prospects JP Sears, Ken Waldichuk, Luis Medina and Cooper Bowman. Montas didn’t make his debut sooner because he was put on the bereavement list.

Through 19 starts, Montas recorded a 3.18 ERA, a 1.137 WHIP, 109 strikeouts and 28 walks in 104.2 innings.

Ironically, Montas won’t be the only trade-deadline acquisition to make its debut during the Yankees-Cardinals weekend series. Jordan Montgomery makes his debut for the Cardinals on Saturday. He was traded by the Yankees for outfielder Harrison Bader. The Yankees’ trade deadline extension comes to save New York on Sunday
