“Nothing really,” Newman answered.
Montgomery was placed on the Triple-A seven-day disabled list yesterday, but Newman said it has more to do with rest than concern.
“Shoulder was a bit tired,” Newman said. “He could have pitched but we want to give periodic breaks to some of the younger pitchers and this seemed like a good time. Back pitching on Saturday.”
Montgomery had a strong April, but he’s had an unusual number of walks in May (12 in 14 innings), and in his past three outings he had five hits, four runs, three walks and two strikeouts in four innings.
