“Our thoughts are with Frankie” “Prayers to him and his family”

The New York Yankees have added newly acquired right-hander Frankie Montas to the bereavement list.

Montas was the best starter available on the market during the last mile of the trading window. He has compiled a 3.18 ERA and a 3.89 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 19 starts this season.

Earlier this morning, the Yankees put RHP Frankie Montas on the bereavement list.

The Yankees brought in Montas and helper Lou Trivino from the Oakland Athletics. In exchange, the A’s got a package of prospects including left-handers JP Sears and Ken Waldichek, right-hander Luis Medina and second baseman Cooper Bowman.

According to The Athletic’s Lindsey Adler, Montas has yet to catch up with his new team due to a death in his family.

Frankie Montas is expected to face the Yankees in St. Louis this weekend, Aaron Boone said. Montas had a death in the family and will not be in New York today or tomorrow.

New York Yankees fans expressed their deepest condolences on Twitter.

@Yankees Heartfelt condolences to Frankie and his family 🙏🏻

Montas is expected to be in St. Louis over the weekend, so Yankees fans won’t have to wait long to see him in pinstripes.

@Yankees We’ll be ready for Frankie as soon as he’s ready for us. Best wishes to you and your family. @FrankieMontas ♥️

@Yankees give him all the time he needs 🙏🙏

Given the circumstances, Montas deserves all the time in the world and his debut can wait. Family always comes first.

The New York Yankees have had a very busy trading window

The New York Yankees were among the busiest clubs during this trading window.

Last week they acquired All-Star Outfielder Andrew Benintendi from the Kansas City Royals. That allowed them to mercifully end Joey Gallo’s nightmare in the Bronx, who made a deadline-day switch to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Montas’ arrival strengthens a Yankees rotation that currently includes Gerrit Cole, Jameson Taillon, Nestor Cortes, Jordan Montgomery and Domingo German. Trivino, on the other hand, gives her bullpen more depth.

It remains to be seen how the Yankees will take Luis Severino after his stint in IL. Severino has recovered from a strained lat and saw his IL stint extended from 15 days to two months on Monday. As of now, he is expected to recover in time for the postseason.

The New York Yankees lead the American League East fairly comfortably, enjoying an 11-game lead between themselves and the second-ranked Toronto Blue Jays. However, Aaron Boone’s club have lost five of their last ten games. As of this writing, the Yankees are losing 6-1 to the Seattle Mariners after four innings in their last game of a three-game series.
