The Yankees bullpen is getting stronger again… ‘Pilseungjo’ King, “It will be possible to return to the opening game”

 Reporter Yoon-Jun Ko = Michael King, who played a major role in the pitching staff of the New York Yankees by going back and forth between starting and bullpen until last season, is expected to be ready until the opening game. 안전놀이터

King had a good run last year, but after pitching one inning against the Baltimore Orioles in July, he suddenly volunteered to go down the mound. As a result of a close examination after the game, his elbow fracture was confirmed, and he was ruled out of the season as it was.

Fortunately, he was told that he did not need Tommy John surgery and underwent surgery related to the fracture. And he recently started pitching along with rehab. The Yankees posted the video, and fans all welcomed him.

On the 26th (Korean time), reporter Brandon Kutty of ‘The Athletic’ said, “King is expected to be able to prepare for this opening match. Also, this season, he is expected to be put into the Yankees’ multi-inning relief pitcher.”

King made his Yankees debut in 2019 and played for the same team until last year. He showed good form from the 2021 season, and last year, he recorded 6 wins, 3 losses, ERA 2.29, 16 holds, 1 save, 66 strikeouts, and was reborn as a bullpen one-two punch with Clay Holmes. It is expected that he will be a great help to the Yankees by being together from the opening game.

This season, the Yankees will start with closer Holmes, along with Jonathan Roaiciga, Wandy Peralta, Lou Trivino and Ron Marinacio, along with King in their bullpen.
