Rangers' John King: Takes loss in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (5-4) was tagged with the loss in relief Sunday against the Rays after allowing three runs (two earned) on one hit and a walk across one-third of an inning.

King entered the game in the top of the eighth inning but struggled badly, as he retired only one batter and gave up three of the seven runs the Rangers allowed. This outing ended a streak of four straight scoreless appearances and ballooned his ERA to 2.40, though that's still a solid figure for a pitcher who has hurled 30 innings across 21 appearances.

Rangers' John King: Picks up third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (3-1) allowed two hits and struck out three over 2.2 scoreless innings to earn the win over Minnesota on Wednesday.

With Hyeon-Jong Yang making his first MLB start and not completely stretched out, the Rangers knew there would be a need for one of their relievers to tote a multi-inning load. King was that man Wednesday, coming in during the fourth inning to get out of a bases-loaded jam. He then authored two more frames for his third multi-inning outing in his last four appearances. He's been one of the Rangers' best relievers, posting a 1.13 ERA over 16 innings -- not bad for a guy who never pitched above High-A prior to 2020. The left-hander credits a move to the third-base side of the rubber and a new meditation process for his early-season success, Kennedi Landry of reports.

Rangers' John King: Takes loss in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (2-1) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the White Sox after giving up a run on three hits and a walk across 2.2 innings. He fanned one.

King was just one out away from sending the game to extra innings, but he allowed a game-winning double to Nick Madrigal that scored Luis Robert. The left-hander ended a streak of five scoreless appearances while pitching his longest outing of the season, but he continues to be one of the Rangers' most dependable arms out of the bullpen and owns a 1.69 ERA across 10.2 innings in eight appearances.

Rangers' John King: Earns second win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (2-0) allowed two hits over one scoreless inning to pick up the win over the Angels on Wednesday.

King entered in the seventh inning with the Rangers in a 3-1 hole and was the pitcher of record when his offense put up crooked numbers in the eighth and ninth innings. The left-hander turned in his fifth straight scoreless outing, lowering his ERA to 1.13. He's walked one and allowed 12 hits over eight innings but has managed to pitch out of danger by keeping balls on the ground (65.4 GB%)

Rangers' John King: Picks up win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (1-0) allowed one hit and struck out one in one inning to earn the extra-inning win Sunday versus the Orioles.

King worked the 10th inning and earned the win when Nate Lowe hit a walkoff single to give the Rangers a 1-0 victory. Through seven innings, King has been a bit generous with baserunners -- he's allowed 10 hits and a walk but only one earned run. He has a hold and a blown save in addition to Sunday's victory.

Rangers' John King: Fans four Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King allowed two hits and struck out four over two scoreless innings in Friday's 3-0 loss to the Padres.

King was the second-best pitcher in the game following San Diego's Joe Musgrove, who no-hit the Rangers. It was King's third appearance of the season and first that lasted more than three outs. All of his appearances have been in the middle innings, and King has allowed four runs (one earned) and six hits while striking out five over four innings.

Rangers' John King: Projected for roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King is projected to make the Rangers' bullpen, per Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News.

King, who made his MLB debut in 2020 despite never pitching above High-A, has allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven over 7.1 Cactus League innings. The Rangers are hurting in the bullpen and dealing with injuries to Jose Leclerc (elbow) and Jonathan Hernandez (elbow). The relievers still standing do not have defined roles at this time, but King should land in a middle-relief role with the capability of contributing more than three outs.

Rangers' John King: Contract selected by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King's contract was purchased by the Rangers on Friday.

The 25-year-old will be making quite the leap, as he's yet to pitch above High-A. He posted a 2.03 ERA in 14 starts for High-A Down East last season, striking out 22.7 percent of batters while walking just 4.0 percent, but expectations should be modest for him this season given the jump in competition.
