  • Rangers' John King: Returns to majors

    King was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday.

    The 27-year-old was demoted to Triple-A on Aug. 18 but will rejoin the big-league club after Dallas Keuchel was designated for assignment. King has appeared in 31 games for the Rangers this year and has a 4.67 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 24:13 K:BB over 34.2 innings.

  • Rangers' John King: Sent back to minors

    The Rangers optioned King to Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday.

    King will lose his spot on the 26-man active roster and in the Texas bullpen after Matt Moore (personal) was reinstated from the bereavement list. During his week-long stay with Texas, King appeared in two games and gave up two earned runs on three hits while striking out two over 3.1 innings.

  • Rangers' John King: Returns to big leagues

    King was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.

    King has a 4.70 ERA over his last five big-league appearances and is coming off a stint at Triple-A Round Rock where he generated a 9.00 ERA and 1.73 WHIP across 11 innings. King will rejoin the Rangers after they placed Spencer Howard (shoulder) on the 15-day IL retroactive to Monday.

  • Rangers' John King: Heading to Triple-A

    King was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.

    King has been a piece of Texas' bullpen all season but will now make his way to the minors. He has a 4.60 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 22:13 K:BB across 31.1 innings this season.

  • Rangers' John King: Can't hold lead

    King allowed one run on two hits while striking out one in one inning during Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Rays in extra innings.

    King, who's pitched well recently, came on in eighth inning to protect a one-run lead after starter Jon Gray's gem of an outing. Unfortunately, King blew the save -- the second eighth-inning blown save over his last three appearances -- and the Rangers lost in extras.

  • Rangers' John King: Earns sixth hold

    King struck out one over a scoreless eighth inning to earn the hold in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Rays.

    King followed up a dominant start by Martin Perez by pitching a perfect eighth inning. The hold was the sixth for King, who's scooped up three over the last six appearances. The left-hander has allowed a worrisome number of walks -- nine in 20 innings -- but he's avoided serious damage and pitched better during his recent six-game stretch. Five of those six outings have been scoreless and four have been perfect innings of relief.

  • Rangers' John King: Earns shaky hold

    King allowed two hits and a walk while striking out two over 1.2 scoreless innings in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Royals.

    King earned his second hold, but he allowed two inherited runners to score. The left-hander has managed to sidestep serious damage despite allowing 21 baserunners over 13.1 innings -- only two of his 13 appearances have been clean. King has a 2.70 ERA which stands in contrast to a 4.22 FIP.

  • Rangers' John King: Rustles up easy win

    King (1-0) allowed zero hits and one walk over 1.1 scoreless relief innings to pick up the win over the Angels on Thursday.

    Starter Dane Dunning was pulled after eight outs and 86 pitches, but the Rangers were coasting at the time with an 8-2 lead. Dunning's inefficiency created a chance for King to collect his first win of 2022. King, who worked as a multi-inning reliever in 2021, vultured seven wins out of the bullpen last season, when Texas starters often needed relief. The rotation is off to a similar start this season (6.85 ERA while averaging four innings per start), so guys like King could be needed often in the middle innings. Mix in a potent offense (fourth in runs scored so far) and the recipe is there for more relief wins.

  • Rangers' John King: Full go for spring

    King (shoulder) is expected to be a full participant during the Rangers' spring camp, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    King has yet to make his 2022 Cactus League debut, but that shouldn't be far away now that the Rangers are giving him full clearance after he underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in September. Though the track record of pitchers returning from the procedure isn't promising, King has apparently been free of setbacks in his recovery and should have a chance at making the Opening Day bullpen if he fares well in his spring outings. King still has three minor-league options remaining, so it wouldn't be too surprising if the Rangers took a cautious approach and sent him to Triple-A Round Rock to begin the season so he can attempt to regain form in a lower-pressure setting.

  • Rangers' John King: Undergoes surgery

    King will miss the remainder of the season after recently undergoing thoracic outlet syndrome surgery, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    King was initially sidelined in July with what was described as shoulder inflammation. It's now been revealed that he's dealing with thoracic outlet syndrome, but the surgery should have him ready to go come spring training. King posted a 3.52 ERA and 40:12 K:BB across 46 innings this season, which should leave him as a candidate for high-leverage innings entering 2022 if he makes a full recovery.

  • Rangers' John King: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    King (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.

    King has been out since early July with shoulder inflammation but was trending toward a return before suffering a setback in a rehab outing last week. Previous reports indicated he still had a chance to return before the end of August, but he's now ineligible to do so prior to Sept. 5.

  • Rangers' John King: Return delayed

    King (shoulder) experienced renewed soreness following his second rehab appearance Aug. 13 at Triple-A Round Rock, but he's expected to return from the 10-day injured list before the Rangers' upcoming homestand concludes Sept. 1, reports.

    Texas had been hopeful that King would be ready to return from the IL on Tuesday, but the setback during the rehab assignment derailed those plans. Ideally, King will make at least one more appearance in the minors with no renewed discomfort before reclaiming a spot in the Texas bullpen.

  • Rangers' John King: Nearing return

    Texas manager Chris Woodward said King (shoulder) is expected to rejoin the team soon, Joseph Hoyt of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    King made a second rehab appearance Friday for Triple-A Round Rock, striking out two over a scoreless relief inning. He's made two one-inning appearances for the Express, which is a departure from his usage prior to the injury. King averaged nearly two innings per outing and had been gearing up to enter the rotation at the time of his injury.

  • Rangers' John King: Works relief inning on rehab

    King (shoulder) allowed one hit and one walk over a scoreless relief inning for Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.

    King had been working as a multi-inning reliever and tandem starter with the Rangers before landing on the injured list July 9, retroactive to July 7, with left-shoulder inflammation. It's unclear if the Rangers want him to stretch out before returning to the majors or if he'll return immediately as a traditional reliever.

  • Rangers' John King: Rehab assignment starts Tuesday

    King (shoulder) is scheduled to appear out of the bullpen Tuesday in his rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock.

    King moved his rehab to Triple-A over the weekend, but Round Rock opted to have him continue a throwing progression rather than integrating him into the pitching schedule right away. With King's inflamed left shoulder having apparently responded well to the workout, he'll now take the mound Tuesday in what could be the only tune-up outing he needs at Triple-A before rejoining the Rangers.

  • Rangers' John King: Likely to go on rehab assignment

    King (shoulder) will likely begin a rehab assignment Friday, Justice delos Santos of reports.

    Woodward noted that he was hoping for King to be activated Friday without first going on a rehab stint, but that proposal was vetoed by the team's medical staff. If King does indeed get a rehab appearance under his belt in the next few days, he seems likely to rejoin the Texas bullpen during an upcoming series in Seattle. The southpaw has been on the injured list since July 9 with inflammation in his throwing shoulder.

  • Rangers' John King: Remaining in Texas

    King (shoulder) is not expected to be traded to the Yankees and will remain with Texas, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    King was originally reported to be traded along with Joey Gallo from the Rangers to the Yankees. However, he is not expected to be a part of a revised version of the deal, with Joely Rodriguez instead being the bullpen arm on the move. King is working his way back from a shoulder injury that landed him on the injured list July 9 and should throw off a mound soon.

  • Yankees' John King: Headed to New York

    The Yankees acquired King (shoulder) and outfielder Joey Gallo from the Rangers on Wednesday in exchange for pitcher Glenn Otto, second baseman Ezequiel Duran, shortstop Josh Smith and outfielder Trevor Hauver, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

    King has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen in parts of two major-league seasons. Prior to his landing on the injured list July 6, he had managed a 3.52 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 40 strikeouts across 46 innings. He was regularly relied upon to pitch multiple innings and could fill a similar role in New York once he is able to return.

  • Rangers' John King: Could throw off mound soon

    King (shoulder) could throw off a mound by this weekend, Joseph Hoyt of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    King began a throwing program this week, but the Rangers won't determine the next steps until they see him on the mound. The left-hander was placed on the 10-day injured list prior to the All-Star break while building up to become a starter.

  • Rangers' John King: Timeline pushed back

    King (shoulder) may begin a throwing program this weekend.

    King was placed on the 10-day injured list retroactive to July 7, but manager Chris Woodward said the pitcher will "maybe pick up a ball" by Saturday or Sunday. At the time of the IL move, the Rangers were hoping he'd return shortly after the All-Star break, but it looks unlikely King will be ready for the first post-break turn of the rotation. "All reports are that he feels good, his arm feels good," Woodward said. "But we won't know until he actually picks up a baseball and throws it." The left-hander has been working as a tandem starter along with Dane Dunning, but the goal is to build up his pitch count to the point where he could become a traditional starter.
