Domingo Germán News
New York Yankees pitcher Domingo German (shoulder) is set for a rehab outing on Tuesday and is nearing a return to the club. On Tuesday, Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters that the team hopes to have him back for this weekend's series against the Cleveland Indians as long as his rehab start on Tuesday goes well. German has been on the injured list since late July due to a right rotator cuff strain. He's had a mostly disappointing year so far. Over 21 games (18 starts), he's gone 4-5 with a 4.45 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. Upon his return to the club, he is expected to pitch out of the bullpen.
New York Yankees right-hander Domingo German (shoulder) will start a rehab assignment on Tuesday, Pete Caldera of the USA Today Network reports. German hit the injured list in early August with right shoulder inflammation, and he hasn't been in game action since. Prior to the injury, he went 4-5 with a 4.45 ERA and 95 strikeouts in 97 innings. He's started 18 games this season and has made three relief appearances as well. He's expected to be back with the team next week. However, it would likely be in a relief role, significantly diminishing his value.
New York Yankees pitcher Domingo German (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Thursday. He's been sidelined since August 1 with right shoulder inflammation. The 29-year-old will throw a bullpen session on Thursday, and barring any setbacks, could go on a rehab assignment shortly after. German owns a 4.45 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and a 95:25 K: BB across 97 innings in 2021. Fantasy managers should continue to stash German in deep-league formats as the Yankees right-hander is expected to join the starting rotation in mid-August.
The New York Yankees and fantasy managers have a tough decision to make when it comes to starting pitcherDomingo German. The 28-year-old had a 4.03 ERA in 2019 with 18 wins in 143 innings pitched. He accumulated 9.63 strikeouts per nine innings and an FIP of 4.72. German missed the rest of the season and was suspended for all of the shortened 2020 campaign. This was due to an investigation on a domestic-violence case against him. The 28-year-old isn't assured of a rotation spot in 2021, but general manager Brian Cashman also isn't ruling him out. In the Dominican Winter League, German had a 7.16 ERA with 18 strikeouts. At his current ADP of 315, there isn't much risk, which is what you should be looking for in a pitcher that missed all of 2020 and who has seen his strikeout rate drop in each of his three big-league seasons from 2017 to 2019. Unless he's injured in spring training, German has a very good shot at opening the season in New York's rotation.
