This is miraculous news for the Yankees considering the gruesome elbow fracture King suffered in late July. He managed to avoid Tommy John surgery after what was a breakout season for the 27-year-old. King posted a stout 2.29 ERA and 32.2% K% across 34 appearances, all of which came out of the Yankees' bullpen. King could be used cautiously in the early going but could get into the saves mix depending on how the back end of the Yankees' bullpen performs in the early going.
