While Chad Green (4-4, 4.57 ERA) will get the ball as the opener, the real storyline is the return of LHP Jordan Montgomery, who has spent over a year recovering from Tommy John surgery. The 26-year-old is expected to come into the game following Green and has not pitched since May 1, 2018. Montgomery made 29 starts in 2017, going 9-7 with a 3.88 ERA and striking out 144 batters over 155.1 innings. He finished sixth in Rookie of the Yea voting that season, but made just six starts in 2018 before suffering his injury.

RHP T.J. Zeuch, who will be making just his second big league start after debuting earlier this month when rosters expanded.
