In Jeff Montgomery’s rookie year with Cincinnati, he made one start in fourteen games.  He would be traded to the Royals where he would never start again, and never play for anyone else.

It was a great trade for Kansas City as they got 304 Saves for a player who would only have one Home Run in the Majors.  Montgomery would become the closer for the team and he would have five seasons where he had hit the 30 Save mark.  The three time All Star would have his best season in 1993 where he would lead the lead the American League in Saves (45) and would win the Rolaids Relief Award.  That year he would finish thirteenth in MVP voting.
