It is time the Yankees commit to making Michael King a full-time reliever

Stop me if I sound like a broken record, but the Yankees’ biggest question mark heading into the winter is once again the starting rotation. They are losing three veteran pitchers to free agency without any guarantees of how to fill their absences. With it looking more and more likely that Yankees ownership will operate under self-imposed austerity measures, the rational belief is that those holes will be filled with low-cost options off the farm.

With Masahiro Tanaka, James Paxton, and J.A. Happ reaching the end of their contracts, one logical avenue would be to pencil Michael King into the rotation for next year.
