S.T. Game 8. Cole & King impressive in Yanks’ 5-3 loss.

The Yankees (5-3 in spring training) lost 5-3 to Detroit Friday night, but Gerrit Cole and Michael King were impressive in the loss.

For King, it was very encouraging to see. King was 6-3, 2.29 last season and really dominating when he fractured his pitching elbow. For him to come out and do great was wonderful to see.

Not a good outing however for Clarke Schmidt, who is battling Domingo German for the #5 starter slot that is up for grabs because of Frankie Montas’ shoulder injury.

Gleyber Torres 0 for 2, both strikeouts. Had a tooth pulled the day before.
