The wild report has it that Yankees player Jordan Montgomery got traded to the St. Louis Cardinals after an engagement photo shoots at Yankees stadium with his fiancee McKenzie Dirr.
Side Action got the juice;
The New York Yankees shipped pitcher Jordan Montgomery to the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for center fielder Harrison Bader on Tuesday, the teams announced. New York also will receive a player to be named later or cash considerations as part of the deal, which was struck just before the trade deadline.
It was only a few days before he was traded that his fiancé was showing off their engagement pics at Yankees stadium.
Jordan Montgomery of the Yankees Fiancee McKenzie Dirr posted only 5 days ago, showing off that they took all of their engagement pictures at Yankee stadium, and now he was traded to the Cardinals, according to our tipster.
Sounds like a total blindside, I mean there’s no way they take pictures at Yankees Stadium if they thought he’d be traded.
“Pretty shocked I guess,” Montgomery said of being traded.
“I still don’t really think I’ve ever performed the way I should here,” he added. “A lot better player than I’ve ever shown, but I think I was consistent and definitely worked my hardest.”
Jordan Blackmon Montgomery (born December 27, 1992), nicknamed “Gumby,” is an American professional baseball pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball (MLB). He made his MLB debut in 2017 with the New York Yankees. Before his professional career, Montgomery played college baseball for the South Carolina Gamecocks. Listed at 6 feet 6 inches (1.98 m) and 225 pounds (102 kg), Montgomery both throws and bats left-handed.
It is clear he didn’t think he was going to get traded, but this is a business that always has to keep your head on a swivel. At least the photos did come out nice.
