Left-handed starter Jordan Montgomery and the Arizona Diamondbacks are in agreement on a free agent deal, pending a physical, a source told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Tuesday night.

Montgomery, 31, started 32 games this past season while compiling a combined 10-11 record with a 3.20 ERA in 188.2 innings for the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers.

He threw another 31 innings in the postseason, helping the Rangers to their first World Series championship.

Montgomery’s best moments last season came down the stretch for the Rangers, where he started 11 times and produced a 2.79 ERA — though his team only won four of those games. His best game came in the wild card round when he shut out the Tampa Bay Rays over seven innings.

Montgomery is joining his fourth team since 2022 after being traded from the New York Yankees to the Cardinals that summer. He was dealt along with Chris Stratton to the Rangers in exchange for three players at the trade deadline last season.

The seven-year veteran has a career 38-34 mark with a 3.68 ERA and 705 strikeouts in 755 innings pitched after being drafted by the Yankees in the fourth round of the 2014 draft.

ESPN’s Jesse Rogers contributed to this report.
