King is a member of the US Army’s 82nd Airborne Division.  He has served one deployment in Iraq and two in Afghanistan. He is a Purple Heart Recipient for injuries he sustained during his second tour to Afghanistan when he was hit by an Improvised Explosive Device causing the loss of both of his legs and functionality of part of his foreman. He is currently undergoing treatment at the Walter Reed Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD.
“I think Clayton takes some of the attention away from him, which Zack doesn’t really crave, and Clayton can handle,” (AJ) Ellis said. 
“He’s given us what we wanted when we signed him. It gives us another quality arm back there in the closing innings in the game where we can spread out work where we don’t have to wear anybody out,” added Mattingly.
