  • Yankees' Michael King: Expects to be ready for Opening Day

    King (elbow) expects to be ready for the start of the season, Brendan Kuty of The Athletic reports.

    King missed the final two-plus months of the 2022 season after fracturing his right elbow. The 27-year-old was excellent before the injury with a 2.29 ERA over 51 innings and a 66:16 K:BB ratio over 34 appearances. Assuming good health, King should be a bridge to Clay Holmes in the late innings.

  • Yankees' Michael King: No arbitration necessary

    King (elbow) signed a one-year deal with the Yankees on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

    King got off to an excellent start last season, posting a 2.29 ERA in 51 innings of relief while striking out 33.2 percent of opposing batters. He hit the injured list with a fractured elbow shortly after the All-Star break and wound up missing the rest of the year, though he was able to avoid Tommy John surgery and could be ready for the start of next season.

  • Yankees' Michael King: Doesn't need Tommy John surgery

    King (elbow) learned Thursday that he doesn't need Tommy John surgery, Gary Phillips of reports.

    King underwent surgery to repair a fractured right elbow in late July and had since been waiting for word on whether he'd need the Tommy John procedure. A recent MRI revealed that his UCL is in fact intact, meaning that the additional surgery is not needed. King indicated that he plans to resume throwing as soon as late October. That puts him in line to have a relatively normal offseason and to be ready to return to the mound by spring training next year.

  • Yankees' Michael King: Undergoes surgery

    King (elbow) underwent surgery Wednesday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

    King has been ruled out for the season due to a fractured right elbow, and his procedure addressed that issue. The status of his ligament isn't yet clear, and the right-hander will be evaluated in 8-10 weeks to determine whether he'll require Tommy John surgery. If King doesn't need to undergo the procedure, the Yankees hope to have him back in time for spring training 2023.

  • Yankees' Michael King: Expected to avoid Tommy John

    King isn't believed to be dealing with any major UCL damage to his fractured right elbow, making it likely that he'll avoid Tommy John surgery, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    King is still expected to require a procedure to address the fracture, but a recovery timeline for that surgery would put him on track to be available to pitch at some point in 2023, if not the start of spring training. The 27-year-old, who is expected to go under the knife later this week or in early August, concludes the 2022 campaign with a 2.29 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 66:16 K:BB in 51 innings to go with one save and 16 holds.

  • Yankees' Michael King: Could need Tommy John surgery

    King will undergo surgery on his fractured right elbow, and it's possible that he may also need Tommy John surgery, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    It was a foregone conclusion that King would need surgery for the fracture when the diagnosis was revealed Friday, but the possibility of Tommy John surgery could make the injury even more devastating for the right-handed hurler and the organization. Should the issue be limited to the fracture, King could be back in time for spring training next season, but Tommy John would knock him out for a vast majority (if not all) of 2023. The Yankees may have a tough time replacing him in the bullpen, as he had posted a 2.29 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 66:16 K:BB over 51 innings while picking up 16 holds, one save and three wins prior to the injury.

  • Yankees' Michael King: Placed on 60-day IL

    King was placed on the 60-day injured list Saturday with a fractured right elbow.

    We already knew King was done for the season after he suffered a fractured elbow Friday. This was a breakout year for the righty reliever, as he registered a 2.29 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 66 strikeouts in 51 innings of work. He also notched six wins and one save.

  • Yankees' Michael King: Suffers elbow fracture

    King suffered a fracture in his right elbow Friday against the Orioles, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Sherman also reports that King is expected to miss the rest of the season, though further testing will confirm that. King was an excellent reliever for the Yankees while maintaining a 2.29 ERA and a 66:16 K:BB across 51 innings on the campaign.

  • Yankees' Michael King: Departs with elbow injury

    King exited Friday's game against Baltimore due to an elbow injury, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    King was lifted suddenly in the eighth frame after completing an inning of work without allowing a baserunner. There's no official diagnosis, though any arm injury for a pitcher raises significant concern. King has been a key part of the Yankees' bullpen this season, as he's maintained a 2.29 ERA with a 66:16 K:BB across 51 innings.

  • Yankees' Michael King: Takes tough-luck loss Friday

    King (6-2) was tagged with the loss in extra innings against Boston on Friday, giving up an unearned run without allowing a hit or a walk in one inning.

    King didn't allow any baserunners, but a two-out wild pitch allowed Xander Bogaerts -- who opened the inning at second base as the automatic runner and moved over to third on a flyout -- to score the winning run. The loss does little to mar what has been a standout season for the righty reliever -- he's posted a 2.19 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 64:15 K:BB over 49.1 innings while notching 15 holds, six wins and a save. Since the start of June, King has allowed only two earned runs across 20.1 frames.

  • Yankees' Michael King: Picks up 14th hold

    King earned a hold over the Red Sox on Saturday, allowing one run on one hit while striking out two batters over two innings.

    King came on with two outs in the sixth inning, and he got Trevor Story to fly out with a pair of runners on base. The right-handed reliever then pitched a clean seventh, but he gave up a two-out double to J.D. Martinez in the eighth, and that hit was cashed in for a run after he departed. King was nonetheless credited for a hold -- his eighth since the start of June. Over 14 games during that stretch, he's allowed just two runs over 17.1 innings while recording a 24:9 K:BB.
