Biographical Information[edit]

Luke Montz was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 17th round of the 2003 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Ray Corbett and made his pro debut that summer.

Montz made his major league debut with the Washington Nationals in 2008 and played 10 big league games that year. He would have to wait until 2013 to play in the major leagues again, when he suited up for the Oakland Athletics for 13 games.

After his playing career ended in 2015, Montz became active in coaching. He served as a volunteer assistant coach at his former high school in spring 2016. His next step was an assistant coach position with the Acadiana Cane Cutters when he replaced a departing coach on July 20, 2016. The Cane Cutters are a summer collegiate team that plays in the Texas Collegiate League. Montz was named the Cane Cutters head coach in 2017. Professional baseball beckoned in 2018 and Montz served as a coach with the Portland Sea Dogs in the Boston Red Sox organization. Montz became a manager with the Lowell Spinners in 2019. He was slated to return to the Spinners in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic shut down minor league baseball.
