Would a Shohei Ohtani-type deal work for Rangers, Jordan Montgomery?

SURPRISE, Ariz. — Jordan Montgomery is not one of the 38 pitchers on the Texas Rangers’ spring roster, and it’s going to take some work to get him on there.

The Rangers already have the highest payroll in club history, general manager Chris Young said, and they have already exceeded the luxury-tax threshold for a second straight season. That means a larger penalty for the overage.

Also complicating matters is the uncertainty surrounding the team’s TV deal for next season. They don’t have one, and Young confirmed that the 2024 deal they agreed to last week is for less than what they received in 2023.

Montgomery would appear to be out of the question.

“We’ll keep an open mind, but the TV uncertainty is real,” Young said.
