New York Yankees acquire Harrison Bader

send Jordan Montgomery to St. Louis Cardinals

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.

Montgomery has been a top performer for the Yankees

posting a 3.77 ERA in 272 innings across 51 starts the past two seasons.

However, he was 0-2 with a 5.36 ERA in his last eight outings.

"Pretty shocked I guess,'' Montgomery said of being traded.
