New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays: Michael King vs. T.J. Zeuch

The last two nights have encouraged me perhaps more than any other span this season. It hasn’t been the prettiest baseball by any means, but the team has shown an urgency and desire we haven’t seen all season. They’ve had to fight to win the first two games, and it will be no different as they go for the sweep tonight.

How Michael King is succeeding for the Yankees

Michael King said before the season that his goal was to pitch 100 innings for the Yankees this year. He’s already a quarter of the way there, and if the team keeps needing him in the rotation, he could very well hit that mark. We’ve seen King before – he’s...

Yankees' Michael King: Lasts 3.2 innings

King didn't factor into the decision Thursday against the Twins after allowing two runs on four hits and three walks across 3.2 innings, He struck out three. King has shifted between the bullpen and the rotation this season and while his recent outings have been underwhelming, he still owns a 3.77 ERA across 10 appearances (three starts) in 2021. The right-hander has a good shot at staying in the rotation for the upcoming few weeks with Corey Kluber (shoulder) sidelined through the All-Star break, but he'll need to show more in his upcoming outings to remain in the rotation. King tentatively lines up to start next week against the Blue Jays on the road.

Yankees' Michael King: Awarded second straight start

King is slated to start Thursday's game against the Twins. King will make a second straight turn through the rotation in place of Corey Kluber (shoulder) after he most recently took the hill June 4 against the Red Sox. In that outing, King made history by becoming the first pitcher from either side of the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry to throw an immaculate inning when he struck out the side on nine pitches in the bottom of the fourth. Despite the achievement, King's final line was somewhat underwhelming, as he finished the game with four runs allowed on six hits while striking out five over 5.1 innings in a no-decision. Still, the 26-year-old showed enough to get another look in a starting role while Kluber remains shut down through the All-Star break.

New York Yankees vs. Detroit Tigers: Michael King vs. Tarik Skubal

It’s been a pretty brutal stretch for the Yankees. After ending last week by sweeping the White Sox, a spate of injuries sucked the air out of the room, and the ensuing games have been brutal. They lost two of three to the Blue Jays, which, while annoying since it...

Yankees' Michael King: Takes loss Sunday

King (0-2) was tagged with the loss Sunday against the Tigers after allowing four runs (two earned) on three hits and two walks while fanning two across 2.1 innings. King couldn't even get out of the third inning due to his command issues -- tossing just 37 of his 63 pitches for strikes -- and his lack of effectiveness. This was his first start of the campaign and while the results weren't encouraging, he's still been a reliable presence on the mound for the Yankees and owns a 2.86 ERA on the season.

Yankees' Michael King: Starting Sunday

King will start Sunday against the Tigers, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. The Yankees are down a starter with Corey Kluber shut down for four weeks with a shoulder strain. King relieved Kluber after he got hurt Tuesday against Toronto, allowing one run in three innings. It's unclear if he'll replace Kluber long term, as that honor could also go to Deivi Garcia, who started Saturday against the Tigers but was optioned following the game.

Yankees' Michael King: Relieves injured Kluber in loss

King covered three innings out of the bullpen Tuesday in the Yankees' 6-2 loss to the Blue Jays, surrendering one run on six hits and a walk while striking out three. King tossed 54 pitches over the three-inning appearance, his longest outing since April 16. The Yankees needed King to eat innings after starter Corey Kluber covered only three frames before departing with right shoulder tightness. The Yankees will send Kluber in for an MRI on Wednesday to glean a better picture of the severity of his injury, leaving his availability in question for his next turn through the rotation Sunday in Detroit. King and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre starter Deivi Garcia would appear to be the leading candidates to step into the rotation if Kluber isn't cleared for the weekend.

Unfortunately, Jordan Montgomery proceeded to bungle that lead so badly not even Michael King could save them.
