The fifth-year guard signed a six-year contract extension with the Cowboys on Monday to become the highest-paid player at his position, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported, citing unidentified sources.

Martin was set to enter the final year of his contract in 2018 and slated to earn a base salary of $9.3 million.

He’s throwing strikes with this fastball, manager Joe Maddon said. That box is checked. The changeup is great off of that, and throwing his curveball where Omar Infante Jersey he wants it. That’s a pretty good formula right there.

Even though it’s just two outings, Montgomery’s performance has been a godsend for a team searching Teemu Selanne Jersey for consistency in its rotation. Basically, he’s doing what Darvish was supposed to be doing. He’s relishing his time in the role, something he publicly pleaded for in the offseason.

There was a lot of concern on my agent’s end regarding my health, Montgomery said of his swingman role. That’s his job. But I’m also someone that wants to pitch and wants to start. I don’t regret saying that, but I’ll do whatever the team asks.
