Frankie Montas Trade Odds: Yankees, Blue Jays & Cardinals Top Three Favorites

Frankie Montas Trade Odds: Yankees, Blue Jays & Cardinals Top Three Favorites

Frankie Montas has just a 4-9 record in 19 starts for the Oakland Athletics this season. But that’s with the Oakland Athletics. 

His 3.18 ERA 109/28 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 104.2 innings, his sixth-place in AL Cy Young voting last year and his 9-2 and 2.63 ERA marks when the A’s were a contender in 2019 are the reasons several contending clubs are working hard to add Montas to their rotation for a stretch run before Tuesday’s 6 p.m. ET MLB trade deadline. 

Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson has revealed his hypothetical MLB odds as to Montas’ post-MLB trade deadline team.

Montas has a salary of only $5 million for this season and is in a final year of arbitration for 2023. He’ll be an unrestricted free agent in his age 31 season in 2024. 

That’s quite a value for a player that many teams believe would be a top-three starter in rotations contending for the postseason. 

The Yankees have been at the forefront of Montas rumors for weeks. Oakland can ask for a lot in return for Montas, and they reportedly have, inquiring about New York’s prized shortstop Oswald Peraza – the No. 2 overall prospect in baseball and possibly a deal-breaker for the Bronx Bombers. 

If that is the case, and they can get Carlos Rodon from the Giants without giving up Peraza, Montas may remain in the Bay Area.

The Blue Jays are also in need of a reliable front-line starter and have a plethora of prospects, including several who are MLB ready. Oakland might find it gets a better deal from Toronto. 

The Twins and Padres reportedly were in the mix, but talks have fizzled. The Dodgers have reportedly made a late inquiry. 

While it’s very possible the A’s fail to fall in love with any offers for Montas, there is a growing opinion that Montas will be shipped to the highest bidder, whatever the deal.
