Pirates reliever Duane Underwood Jr Frankie Montas Jersey. gave up the hit to Bader.It was Bader second hit of the day in his first game as a member of the New York Yankees. One inning earlier, Bader knocked home Oswaldo Cabrera to tie the game 1-1. With his second base knock of the night, Bader is now 2-for-3 with three RBI with his new team.The Yankees acquired Bader and a player to be named later from the St. Louis Cardinals for pitcher Jordan Montgomery, just minutes before the 2022 Major League Baseball trade deadline.Montgomery has been terrific with the Cardinals, logging a 2.35 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 163 ERA+ over 53.2 innings and nine starts. He has a 5-2 record with his new club.The trade has been heavily scrutinized over the past month and a half Andrew Benintendi Jersey, and some even regard it as the best trade of the deadline, from the Cardinals perspective.The Yankees activated Bader from the 60-day Injured List earlier Wednesday, placing pitcher Frankie Montas on the IL in a corresponding move. Bader had been sidelined since June 26 with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.Bader is under contract with the Yankees through the 2023 season.
