The Yankees confirmed the bleak outlook for Michael King on Saturday afternoon, announcing that the righty reliever had been transferred to the 60-day IL with a right elbow fracture.

King, in the midst of a career year as one of the most valuable relievers in the American League, suffered the injury after throwing a pitch in the eighth inning of Friday's win against the Orioles, and is very likely done for the season.

To replace King, the Yanks called up former hyped pitching prospect Clarke Schmidt, and signed a familiar face in Shane Greene to a major league deal. Greene pitched a full season for the Yankees in 2014, was an All-Star in 2019, and has thrown just two big league innings this season, with the Dodgers.
