With the New York Yankees facing a surplus of starting pitching options heading into the postseason, manager Aaron Boone said it would be "tough" for the team to get pitcher Frankie Montas back in time for the playoff rotation.

"I do think there's a chance that he can have a role and have an impact for us," Boone said Sunday. "It's just a matter of how the next couple of weeks go."

One potential option, according to Boone, is using Montas in an opener or relief role.
