SP - NYY - MiLB
The Yankees have optioned pitcher Domingo German to the team's alternate site following his start Saturday against Tampa Bay.
The Yankees have yet to announce a corresponding move. German has allowed four home runs in two starts, throwing a combined seven innings while allowing seven runs (all earned) on 12 hits.
Domingo German gave up four runs over four innings while allowing eight hits, five strikeouts and only issued one walk on Saturday in a loss to the Rays by a 4-0 score.
German has lost both of his two starts to begin the year and has a 9.00 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 7/2 K/BB ratio over seven innings. German will get a re-match with the Rays on Friday at Yankee Stadium and fantasy owners in standard leagues should avoid him.
Domingo German (0-1) gave up three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two batters across three innings in Sunday's loss against the Blue Jays.
German earned a spot in the rotation with a strong spring training performance as the 28-year-old missed all of last season due to a suspension. German is lined up to face the division-rival Rays on the road in his next start on Saturday.
On Thursday, Yankees starter Domingo Germán returned to the mound for the first time since 2019. He faced five New York batters after missing part of 2019 and all of 2020 due to a domestic violence suspension.
The right-hander threw 20 pitches to five teammates. After a shaky start, he settled in, forcing Giancarlo Stanton to ground out before striking out Clint Frazier. As manager Aaron Boone later detailed, "Domingo was good. I thought he was sharp and mixed his pitches as well. I thought he worked his fastball on both sides of the plate, both the two-seam and the four-seam. So good day for him." Germán has his work cut out for him, both on the mound and in the clubhouse. Still, the 28-year-old has a shot at making the team's Opening Day rotation. After all, he went 18-4 in 2019, posting an MLB-best .818 win percentage. The next month will be key for monitoring Germán's status.
Domingo German was reinstated from the restricted list Tuesday.
German missed the entire 2020 season after being suspended for violating the MLB domestic violence policy in 2019. He is not eligible to pitch in the postseason. German will compete for a spot in the Yankees’ rotation in 2021.
