Farm Fresh: Frankie Montas off to strong start in minors

By Cary Osborne

Hard-throwing right-hander Frankie Montas, the Dodgers’ No. 4 prospect, made his first rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday and threw 2 1/3 scoreless innings.

Montas, who went on the 60-day disabled list on February 21 after rib resection surgery, allowed two hits and one walk while striking out three against Texas Triple-A affiliate Round Rock.

His 39 pitches marked a high since he returned to action on May 22.

Montas, who was acquired in the deal that brought Trayce Thompson to Los Angeles from the Chicago White Sox on December 16, has allowed just one earned run with six hits and three walks in 10 1/3 minor league innings. He also has 15 strikeouts.

If I remember he’s a little older than the other; Urias, Deleon, etc. It would be wonderful if he got it together long before Anderson returned. We don’t know how Anderson is going to pitch at least in the beginning, so it gives us some hope. I understand Stripling is on the DL but I don’t remember for how long. It would be nice that we have a idea of whats what before the trade deadline, so we’ll know what we need to put our efforts into.
