Yankees option Domingo German to alternate site

After today’s brutal loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, the Yankees announced that today’s starter, Domingo German, was optioned to the alternate site.

The start of the 2021 season has been a disaster for German. His first appearance against Toronto saw him give up three earned runs in only three innings while today he let up four earned in only four innings. Of equal concern, he has allowed 14 batters to reach base in only seven frames.

As of now, the Yankees have not announced a corresponding move but will likely promote another pitcher to take his place. While the team is likely to add Albert Abreu, the Yankees will need to add another starter at some point to take the place of German. Some potential names to monitor are Michael King, who was dominant in his last outing and youngster Deivi Garcia. Garcia had a strong spring and is well-liked within the organization.

Meanwhile, with the Yankees using three relievers today, the team could simply be looking for a bullpen arm and recall German for his next start. Regardless, it is a frustrating day for the Yankees’ talented but troubled righty.
