Domingo German, who is currently serving an 81-game suspension for domestic violence, will not pitch in the postseason when he becomes eligible, per manager Aaron Boone.
There isn't enough time for the 28-year old to ramp up with baseball activities in order to pitch in the playoffs. The team expects him to be ready for spring training in 2021.
Yankees pitcher Domingo German, who is set to miss the entire 2020 season due to a domestic violence suspension, posted a cryptic Instagram post on Friday night in which he announced he was leaving baseball. He has since deleted the post, and the Yankees say they don't believe the pitcher was serious about retiring.
Whether he retires or not, German is going to miss the entire 2020 season due to his suspension. What happens after that is a mystery. It's possible German is just frustrated with his suspension and missing this season, but there is also a chance that we have seen the last of German in the big leagues.

German was placed on administrative leave by MLB back on September 19th for allegations of domestic violence. This suspension is being made retroactively, so he'll miss the first 63 games of 2020. No criminal charges were filed against German but this is the largest suspension MLB has given out under their domestic violence and abuse policy.
