Along with the above post, German also posted this caption with a photo on Instagram, which was translated by ESPN’s Marly Rivera:
In a cryptic Instagram post, Domingo Germán says the following: “Some people make history on both sides (?), I think I did my part at Yankee Stadium, if I decide not to come back, I will be very proud of my 11-year professional career. God bless everyone who has supported me.” pic.twitter.com/gewdFy6HIH

Due to his domestic violence suspension, German was not eligible to pitch for the Yankees during the 2020 regular season. However, although he was set to serve the remainder of his suspension, no one expected him to walk away from the game.
When asked about it after the Yankees’ scrimmage, Aaron Boone said he heard about the post, but didn’t have much information to report.

Teammate Gary Sanchez was also asked about German. Sanchez stated that he hasn’t spoken to German recently and didn’t have any information regarding his future in baseball.
If this is the end of German’s career, he walks away with a 20-11 record and a 4.52 ERA over three big league seasons. The highlight of his career comes from the 2019 campaign, when the right-hander became a mainstay in the Yankees rotation. During that season, German posted an 18-4 record with a 4.03 ERA.
