King was invited to the Yankees' big-league camp Friday.

King posted excellent numbers across the top three levels of the minors last season, finishing with a stellar 1.79 ERA in 24 starts and one relief appearance while walking just 4.4 percent of opposing batters. Just six of those starts came at the Triple-A level, so his odds of cracking the Opening Day roster appear slim. However, if his strong performances continue it will be hard for the Yankees to keep him in the minors for long.
