Back in Cubs' rotation, Montgomery starts vs. Reds

CINCINNATI -- Mike Montgomery's current stint in the Chicago Cubs' rotation isn't necessarily an audition for 2018. Manager Joe Maddon already is convinced that the 28-year-old left-hander's future isn't in the bullpen.

"He is a starter," Maddon said Tuesday. "I see him as a major league starter who we utilize in our bullpen. The reason that he's done so well is that he's accepted that (role). He knows his time is going to come. I tell him that all the time."

Montgomery (3-6, 3.63 ERA) is scheduled to make his ninth start of the season on Wednesday night in the second of three games against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park. It will be his first start since he was inserted into the Cubs' rotation when Jon Lester went on the disabled list. Montgomery's last start was July 19 at Atlanta.
