With the Red Sox 4.5 games up in the division coming into Friday, the Yankees needed a solid outing from Germán. He did not deliver. In just 3.2 innings of work, the 25-year-old allowed four earned runs on five hits and two walks. Across 19 starts this season, he pitched to a 2-6 record and 5.68 ERA.
Aaron Boone announced during the postgame that Luis Cessa will make a spot start to fill in for Germán. Cessa is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA in six games (two starts) this year.
