Player Outlook
Domingo German was suspended for 81 games in 2020 for violating the Joint MLB-MLBPA Domestic Violence Policy. After a reported clubhouse incident last August, German was placed on the restricted list and agreed to voluntarily submit to inpatient treatment for alcohol abuse. He had been suspended for 10 games earlier in the season after he was found to have a foreign substance on his hand during a game. The Yankees outrighted him off the roster in November and he elected free agency. German signed a minor-league contract with Pittsburgh in mid-March and will join big-league camp for what remains of spring training.

  • Pirates' Domingo German: Makes season debut

    German allowed one run while striking out four over four innings in his season debut Tuesday with Single-A Bradenton. It's his first game action since last July, as the Yankees placed German on the restricted list in August following a clubhouse incident. He became a free agent after being outrighted off New York's 40-man roster and eventually signed a minor-league contract with the Pirates in March. German could eventually become a rotation option for Pittsburgh later this season, but it's unlikely to be anytime soon.

  • Pirates' Domingo German: Brought into Pirates' camp

    German signed a minor-league contract with the Pirates on Friday and was invited to major-league spring training, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Despite throwing the 24th perfect game in MLB history last season, German turned in only a 4.56 ERA and 1.08 WHIP across 108.2 innings for the Yankees. The right-hander will be given a chance to prove himself during the final weeks of spring training, and he will make $1.25 million this season if he makes the MLB roster. His new deal also includes a $2.25 million club option for 2025.

  • Domingo German: Becomes free agent

    German (personal) elected to become a free agent Monday. The transaction comes a few days after German was removed from the Yankees' 40-man roster. Beyond his uneven performance on the field, German has had multiple off-the-field issues which figure to impact his allure as a free agent.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Outrighted off 40-man roster

    The Yankees outrighted German (personal) to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. German missed the final two months of the 2023 season after voluntarily submitting to inpatient treatment for alcohol abuse in early August. The 31-year-old right-hander has now been removed from the 40-man roster in New York and can head into free agency if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Goes on restricted list

    German was placed on the restricted list Wednesday after agreeing to voluntarily submit to inpatient treatment for alcohol abuse. "It is critical that Domingo completely focuses on addressing his health and well-being," reads a statement from the Yankees. "We will respect his privacy as he begins this process." Nestor Cortes (shoulder) has cut short his minor-league rehab assignment and is presumably going to take over German's spot in the rotation beginning Saturday against the Astros. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said German will not return this season, per Andy Martino of

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Enters in relief Monday

    German (arm) threw five scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Rays. He gave up two hits and two walks and struck out four in a no-decision. German was originally scheduled to start Monday, only for the Yankees to scratch him hours before the contest after manager Aaron Boone said the right-hander experienced discomfort in his armpit area Sunday. The Yankees planned to have him visit a doctor shortly before the game, and German was apparently given the green light to work out of the bullpen after starter Jhony Brito was lifted after giving up five runs in four innings. Based on how he fared in relief Monday, German looks to be fully healthy, so he should be ready to return to a traditional starting role when his next turn in the rotation comes up this weekend versus the Astros.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Scratched due to arm discomfort

    German was scratched from his start Monday against the Rays due to discomfort in his right armpit, but manager Aaron Boone said that he doesn't expect the 30-year-old to land on the 15-day injured list, Bryan Hoch of reports. German first experienced the discomfort Sunday and was unable to play catch, prompting the Yankees to call up Jhony Brito from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on short notice to make a spot start. The Yankees will have German visit with a doctor later Monday, and that meeting should help shed light on whether the right-hander will be able to make his next turn through the rotation. German is tentatively lined up to start Saturday versus the Astros at Yankee Stadium.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Scratched from start due to injury

    German has been scratched from his scheduled start Monday against the Rays due to an unspecified "physical issue," Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports. The Yankees called up right-hander Jhony Brito from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to get the start Monday, but the team didn't place German on the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move. For now, German can be viewed as day-to-day until the Yankees provide updated information on both the nature and extent of his rotation. With Nestor Cortes (shoulder) on pace to return from the 60-day IL early next week, German already looked to be at risk of losing his spot in the rotation even before he was scratched from Monday's start. Since throwing a perfect game June 28 in Oakland, German has turned in a 5.64 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over his subsequent four starts.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Mauled by Mets

    German (5-7) took the loss Tuesday as the Yankees were downed 9-3 by the Mets, coughing up six runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk over six innings. He struck out nine. The right-hander had little trouble with most of the Mets' lineup, but Pete Alonso was his nemesis, launching homers off German in the third and sixth innings. On the bright side, he did strike out nine batters for the third straight outing, and German has a 1.25 WHIP and 32:7 K:BB through 22.1 innings over four July starts, albeit with a 5.64 ERA. He'll try to keep the ball in the yard in his next trip to the mound, which is likely to come at home early next week against the Rays.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Strikes out nine in loss

    German (5-6) allowed five runs on four hits and three walks while striking out nine over six innings, taking the loss Tuesday versus the Angels. German has struck out nine in three of his last four starts, but he was unable to contain the Angels' offense. Two of the four hits he allowed went for extra bases, and he also allowed a run to score on a wild pitch in this outing. The right-hander is now at a 4.52 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 101:31 K:BB through 97.2 innings through 18 starts this year. He's projected for a home start versus the Mets next week.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Shines in no-decision

    German did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing two runs (one earned) on one hit and three walks over six innings in a 7-4 loss to the Cubs. He struck out nine. German turned in a quality start Sunday, allowing just one hit while pitching into the sixth inning for the second time in his last five appearances. German enters the All-Star break on a high note, owning a 1.40 ERA and a 23:3 K:BB across his last three outings (19.1 innings). However, fantasy managers should proceed with caution with the 30-year-old, as he carried a 5.10 ERA and a 69:25 K:BB on the year prior to his three recent starts.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Gets hook in fifth inning

    German allowed three runs (two earned) on nine hits and no walks while striking out five batters over 4.1 innings in a no-decision against Baltimore on Monday. In his first start since tossing the 24th perfect game in MLB history last Wednesday, German gave up a season-high nine hits. Only one of those (a double) went for extra bases, but the Orioles generated constant enough traffic to make German labor, and the right-hander exited with 86 pitches on his ledger following back-to-back Baltimore singles with one out in the fifth frame. Though the brilliance of German's perfecto will understandably linger for some time, fantasy managers should note that the hurler has otherwise struggled of late, failing to complete five innings in three of his past four starts and posting an 8.20 ERA (even including the perfect game) over 18.2 innings during that span.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Sleeper pitchers for Week 15 (July 3-9)

    It's all downhill for Domingo German coming off a perfect game, and nobody thinks he's suddenly an ace. But he is in line for two starts, has a swinging-strike rate on par with some of the elites, and is legitimately good at limiting baserunners.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Possible waiver wire pickups

    A perfect game? Cool story, bro. Now let's start poking holes in it. It came against an Athletics lineup that ranks dead last in runs scored (among other major offensive categories). It came from a guy who entered the day with a 5.10 ERA, not to mention a 5.05 xERA and 5.29 FIP. It came after a disastrous two-start stretch in which that guy allowed 15 earned runs in 5 1/3 innings, causing him to be dropped far and wide in Fantasy. But wait, you ask, doesn't that mean German was worth rostering at one time? You have a point there. Three starts ago, his ERA was 3.49. Even now, following the perfect game, his WHIP is 1.05. He entered with the same swinging-strike rate (13.5 percent) as Shohei Ohtani. There are isolated things that German does well, and sometimes they all come together for a great outcome. But the volatility is considerable.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Throws perfect game

    German evened his record at 5-5 while throwing the 24th perfect game in major-league history Wednesday, striking out nine in an 11-0 win over the Athletics. After two straight awful starts versus the Red Sox and the Mariners in which he allowed 17 runs (15 earned) over just 5.1 innings, German responded with the best outing of his career. The right-hander was efficient, throwing 99 pitches (72 strikes) to complete the rare feat. His perfect game was the first of the pitch-clock era and the first in the majors since Felix Hernandez achieved the feat Aug. 15, 2012. For the season, German now owns a 4.54 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 78:25 K:BB over 81.1 innings across 15 starts. His encore is tentatively scheduled for a home game versus the Orioles next week.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Knocked around again

    German (4-5) took the loss against Seattle on Thursday, allowing 10 runs (eight earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out four batters over 3.1 innings. German was pounded almost immediately by the Mariners, who put up four runs on four hits against him in the first inning. Things didn't get better for the right-hander from there, as Seattle went on to put up six more runs against him -- four via solo homers -- before he was mercifully pulled with one out in the fourth. This was the second consecutive disastrous performance for German, who has yielded 17 runs (15 earned) over 5.1 frames across his past two starts. The rough stretch has inflated his ERA from 3.49 to 5.10, and German may need to turn things around soon to hold onto a rotation spot with Carlos Rodon (back/forearm) nearing his season debut, Clarke Schmidt pitching well and Nestor Cortes (shoulder) resuming a throwing program.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Gives up sevens runs in two innings

    German (4-4) took the loss Friday, allowing seven runs on seven hits and two walks over two innings in a 15-5 loss against the Red Sox. He struck out one. German held Boston to just one run across six innings during his last start, but the Red Sox got to him early and often Friday. The seven earned runs were a season-worst mark for the right-hander, who now holds a 4.30 ERA over 13 appearances (69 innings). His 1.09 WHIP and 65:23 K:BB suggest German has ran into a bit of bad luck, but the issue appears to be his consistency, as he hasn't been able to string together more than two quality starts in a row before succumbing to a blowup outing like Friday.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Sharp in win

    German (4-3) allowed a run on six hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings to earn the win Saturday over the Red Sox. German limited the damage to a Rafael Devers solo home run in the sixth inning. While German has given up a homer in each of his last three starts, he's been able to cover 19 innings while allowing just six runs in that span. The right-hander has a solid 3.49 ERA with a 0.99 WHIP and 64:21 K:BB through 67 innings over 12 starts this season, emerging as a reliable innings-eater. He's lined up for a rematch with the Red Sox in Boston next week.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Fans six in no-decision

    German allowed one run on four hits and a walk over 6.2 innings Sunday. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision. German rolled through six shutout frames before coughing up a solo homer to J.D. Martinez in the seventh inning. Over his last six starts, German has allowed two or fewer runs in five of them, lowering his season ERA to 3.69 through 61 innings. He's allowed a homer in two straight starts after not giving one up in four consecutive outings. The 30-year-old is currently projected to face the Red Sox at home in his next start.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Notches third win

    German improved to 3-3 in Monday's 10-4 win over the Mariners, allowing four runs on seven hits and three walks over 6.1 innings. He struck out four. German was making his first start since May 16 after completing a 10-game ban for using a foreign substance on the mound. With 53 strikeouts, German is already on the verge of surpassing last season's total of 58, and he's boasting an elite 0.98 WHIP. German is tentatively slated to face the Dodgers on the road in his next start.
