New York Yankees reliever Michael King out for season after injuring elbow, sources confirm

New York Yankees auxiliary Michael King will miss the remainder of the 2022 season after sustaining a fractured right elbow during Friday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles, sources confirmed to ESPN.

The right-handed king went out in the eighth inning after throwing a throw to Baltimore Orioles third baseman Ramon Urias.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone did not provide a status for King after the game, a 7-6 win in New York, but had expressed concern for him.

“He was one of the best pitchers in the league,” Boone told reporters. “I hope and pray for the best for King.”

The New York Post was the first to report the severity of King’s injury.

Right-hander Jameson Taillon said the mood among the Yankees was “somber” about King after the game.

“He’s a hard worker. I know he will come back here and return to the same place he was,” Taillon told reporters. “It’s never easy to see a guy walk off the field. You think of his girlfriend and family watching. It’s not easy for anyone.”

The 27-year-old King had a career-best 2.29 ERA this season with a 6-3 record, one save and 16 holds in 34 appearances.
