Michael King (elbow) not expected to need Tommy John surgery

Michael King (elbow) is not expected to require Tommy John surgery after an MRI revealed no apparent UCL structural damage.

Fantasy Impact

This is the best case scenario for the right-hander, as now there is a possibility he will be available as early as 2023 spring training. King was in the middle of a breakout season with the Yankees, posting a 2.29 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 66 strikeouts in 34 relief appearances this season.

Michael King (elbow) done for the season

Michael King will miss the remainder of the season after fracturing his elbow on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

There was little doubt that King's season was over once news broke that he had fractured his elbow. He'll now go back to New York for an MRI/CT scan to determine if there is ligament damage which would mean a longer recovery time. The Yankees will almost certainly add to their bullpen now, particularly with Aroldis Chapman struggling. King can, unfortunately, be dropped in all formats.

Michael King suffers fractured elbow Friday

Yankees reliever Michael King suffered a fractured elbow Friday against the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact

King tossed a 1-2-3 inning in Friday's win against Baltimore. It is not exactly clear when he suffered the injury, but he will be a big loss as one of the Yankees most reliable relievers all year after Clay Holmes. King has posted a 2.29 ERA so far this season across 51 innings.

Michael King picks up win in New York’s walk-off victory Thursday

Michael King pitched one inning, allowing no runs on no hits and one walk while striking out two to earn the win in New York’s walk-off 2-1 win against the Rays on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

King improves to 4-1 on the season and carries a 2.55 ERA and 0.96 in 21 appearances this season. His two strikeouts bring his season total to 48 across 35 1/3 in 2022. After allowing six runs across his last three appearances in May, King has made six straight scoreless appearances and has 10 strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings in June.

Michael King picks up win in relief against Tigers Sunday

Michael King pitched a scoreless inning of relief, recording three strikeouts to pick up his 3rd win of the year in New York's 10-inning victory against Detroit on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

King struck out the side in a perfect 10th inning on Sunday. King improves to 3-1 and carries a 2.90 ERA and 1.00 WHIP while striking out 42 batters in 31 innings across 17 appearances this season. While not in line for saves, King can keep pick up wins on a team that has the same amount of win at the 1/3 mark of the season as the 116-win Mariners back in 2001.
