Sabathia ...King belongs in the starting rotation

Former New York Yankees star CC Sabathia thinks Michael King is filthy.

King, 26, has been lighting up opposing batters for the Yankees so far, recording 37 strike outs and allowing just four earned runs through 25.2 innings pitched in 2022. He’s done so well that Sabathia, the 2007 Cy Young Award winner, thinks he belongs in the starting rotation.

“He’s a starter, his stuff is disgusting, bro,” Sabathia said. “His stuff is disgusting. And at a time when everybody went four-seamer top of the zone, high spin rate, he’s sinker/slider, he’s just carving guys up because they don’t have the swing for what he throws.”

CC is right. But...Who would the Yankees take out of their 2022 starting rotation?

Yankees are all of a sudden pretty loaded with starting pitchers 


All 5 Starters are pitching good to great for the Yankees


King and Schmidt both look like they are ready to be in a starting rotation 


Wesneski, Banuelos and Sears all picthing well at AAA


Only concern right now is replacing Green who looks like he is done for the year

While they have a lot of internal options, I would love to see them call the Cubs and try and get D-Rob back home.
