The Yankees prospect, Mike King, could be on track in the list of places



The Yankees prospect, Mike King, could be on track in the list of places

Part 5 of the series analyzes the Yankees’ top prospects

Every conversation about the prospect of pitching the Yankees today begins with Deivi Garcia and Clarke Schmidt. Or Clarke Schmidt and Deivi Garcia. You choose the order.

Garcia, 20, filed for Single-A Tampa, Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre last year and was touted as a September call that might be in an aid role but was not called. Schmidt, 24, also worked at three levels, reaching Trenton where he made three starts.

However, when it comes to this season – if there is one – Mike King’s right hand can get a place in the expanded list in front of Garcia and Schmidt.

After being confined to 11 minor league games and one big league match last season due to a right elbow problem that appeared early in spring training, King was healthy in spring training this year when he appeared in four matches and worked in round 9 9 / ₃.

Acquired from Marlins with international slot money on November 20 2017 for left-handed Caleb Smith and infielder Garrett Cooper, King built a strong 2017 season for Single-A Greensboro by combining 11-5 with 1.79 ERA for Tampa, Trenton and SWB in 2018. In the 161 ¹ / ₃ round, King allowed 118 hits, scored 152 and walked 29. In the six starts for SWB, King drove 4-0 with ERA 1.15.

The body of work led King to be invited by the big league to spring training in 2019, but his elbow injury did not allow him to throw during the exhibition season. He didn’t debut until July 3 in the Gulf Coast League. He moved to Staten Island (short A-season) and played for Trenton and SWB before being appointed to the major leagues in September to take the place of the suspended German list of Domingo.

King’s first major league debut on September 27 against Rangers consisted of two acts in which he fired two blows and ran without success.

In an era dominated by Velocity King, 25, it used fastball, sliders, and 91 mph changeup effectively.

“He ordered both sides of the plate. He was not worried about the counterattack, but he got it,” said a scout about King, who won 3-1 with 4.18 ERA in the four Triple-A that began last season. “He uses his silencing device to get into the hands of people who like to hit right and left. He tried his best. “

While the 6-foot-3, 210-pound King has been a starter under the past three years, the former Boston College thrower could help in a bullpen in the 2020 season that would be like the others.

Garcia, who is on the list of 40 people, and Schmidt, who is not, will also look for a list place. Put Ben Heller (40-man) into the mixture too.

At the time of the deal with the Marlins, the Yankees were looking for international slot money when they prepared to chase Japanese two-way star Shohei Ohtani, who finally signed a contract with the Angels.

Although King has appeared in one major league match, the Marlins are very good at getting Smith, a 14th round pick from the Yankees in 2013. He went 10-11 with 4.52 ERA in 28 starts in 2019 for the club’s rebuilding. Smith played nine games (two starts) for the Yankees 2017, playing 0-1 with ERA 7.71.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
