  • Yankees' Domingo German: Shows improvement in second start

    German allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven in 4.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Mets on Wednesday.

    German gave up five runs in three innings versus the Astros in his season debut last week, but he fared better against the Mets in his second start. He gave up a solo home run to Pete Alonso and an RBI single to Francisco Lindor. German threw 52 of 82 pitches for strikes, so he's just about stretched out fully already and will likely face only minimal restrictions going forward. He's on track for a home start versus the Mariners next week.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Stays in rotation

    German is scheduled to start Wednesday's road game against the Mets.

    German will receive a second turn through the rotation despite struggling mightily in his season debut last Thursday as he made his return from the 60-day injured list due to a shoulder issue that had sidelined him since the spring. In a tough road matchup with a potent Houston lineup, German lasted just three innings and gave up five earned runs on six hits and a walk. While Luis Severino (lat) is facing an uncertain timeline for a return, German looks like he'll get at least a few turns as the Yankees' No. 5 starter, but manager Aaron Boone may not hesitate to go in a different direction if German isn't able to right the ship soon. Prospect JP Sears looms as a viable alternative to German in the rotation, and the Yankees could also look to acquire a starting pitcher prior to the Aug. 2 trade deadline if a long-term absence is in the forecast for Severino.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Roughed up in season debut

    German (0-1) allowed five earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out two across three innings to take the loss in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Astros.

    German was activated from the injured list prior to the start to make his season debut. He faced a tough test and served up back-to-back homers in the opening frame. German also allowed consecutive run-scoring doubles in the second inning to account for all five runs against him. Despite a poor season debut, German should have the chance to stick in the rotation so long as Luis Severino (shoulder) remains sidelined.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Activated for season debut

    German (shoulder) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list to start Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Astros.

    The 29-year-old had shoulder issues surface during the offseason and landed on the 60-day IL in mid-March, but he's now poised to make his 2022 debut for New York. German appeared in five games during his rehab assignment, and he last pitched July 15 for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and fired six scoreless innings. He threw 65 pitches during that outing, so he should face some workload limitations in his first couple big-league starts of the year. German will fill the rotation spot of Luis Severino, who was placed on the IL with a low-grade lat strain just before the All-Star break.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Set to start Game 2 of twin bill

    The Yankees plan to activate German (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list to start the second game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Astros, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

    Jordan Montgomery will take the hill for the opening game of the twin bill before the Yankees turn to German in Game 2 for what will be the latter pitcher's season debut with the big club. German was placed on the 60-day injured list in mid-March after he had shoulder troubles crop up during his offseason throwing program, but the right-hander was cleared to begin a rehab assignment in late June and looks to be back to full health. He ended his rehab assignment on a high note last weekend, tossing six scoreless innings in a 65-pitch outing for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Though the Yankees likely won't want to push German past 80 or 90 pitches Thursday, the 29-year-old looks like he'll have some temporary security as the team's No. 5 starter while Luis Severino (lat) is likely sidelined until at least early-to-mid-August.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Could join rotation after break

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Friday that German (shoulder) could fill the rotation spot of Luis Severino (lat) after the All-Star break, Max Goodman of reports.

    German made his final rehab appearance with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, pitching six scoreless innings and allowing three hits and one walk while striking out one. He threw 65 pitches in the outing, so he's at least within range of a starter's workload. German will likely be on a pitch count for a start or two if he does move into the big-league rotation, and it's not yet clear how long Severino will be out, so expectations should be tempered in terms of German's second-half outlook in fantasy.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Getting another rehab start

    German (shoulder) is scheduled to make the fifth start of his rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone left the door open for German to be activated from the 60-day injured list this weekend if the big club needs an extra arm out of the bullpen for its three-game series with the Red Sox, but for the time being, the 29-year-old right-hander is on track to make what should be his final rehab start. German tossed four scoreless innings and threw 53 pitches in his most recent rehab outing July 9, and he should be close to fully stretched out following Friday's start. At the moment, the Yankees don't have an opening in the rotation available for German coming out of the All-Star break, though that could change if the shoulder tightness Luis Severino experienced during his start Wednesday against the Reds forces him to the IL.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Rehab shifts to Triple-A

    German (shoulder) had his rehab assignment transferred to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday.

    German has made three rehab starts over the last few weeks and has posted a 0.87 ERA and 0.48 WHIP in 10.1 innings with Double-A Somerset during that time. He'll start for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, and it's possible that he'll be activated after one or two more appearances in the minors.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Nearing activation

    German (shoulder) threw four scoreless innings while allowing one hit and striking out four in a rehab outing with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    German threw 53 pitches in the longest outing of his rehab assignment. The Yankees haven't determined the next step in German's return, though it's possible that he makes his next appearance in the majors.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Effective again in rehab start

    German (shoulder) tossed four innings in a rehab start with Double-A Somerset on Sunday, allowing one run on two hits while striking out three.

    German didn't walk any batters and threw 39 of 49 pitches for strikes in his third rehab outing. He has compiled a 0.87 ERA and 0.48 WHIP along with a 6:0 K:BB across 10.1 innings in his trio of minor-league appearances thus far. It's unclear how many more rehab outings he'll make or what role he'll take when he returns to the big-league club.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Impressive in second rehab start

    German (shoulder) pitched 3.1 scoreless innings for Double-A Somerset on Tuesday, allowing two hits and no walks while striking out three batters.

    After throwing 39 pitches in his first rehab outing with Single-A Tampa last week, German upped that count slightly to 43 pitches Tuesday. Twenty-nine of his offerings were strikes, and he has now racked up 6.1 scoreless frames over two rehab starts. It's uncertain how long German will be rehabbing in the minors, and there isn't a clear path to a rotation spot waiting for him in the majors. However, he's pitched well enough so far to be worth consideration in deep fantasy leagues in case a big-league starting slot does open up.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Shifting rehab to Double-A

    German (shoulder) is scheduled to make his next rehab appearance Tuesday with Double-A Somerset, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    German will make a two-level jump in competition after he tossed three scoreless innings while giving up one hit and no walks in his first rehab outing Wednesday with Single-A Tampa. He threw 39 pitches in that start and will presumably look to eclipse the 50-pitch plateau in Tuesday's contest. Though the Yankees are having German build up for a starting role, he likely won't have a spot waiting for him in the big-league rotation if the team's current five starters all remain healthy by the time he's ready to return from the 60-day injured list.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Tosses three innings in rehab start

    German (shoulder) completed three scoreless innings with Single-A Tampa on Wednesday, allowing one hit. He did not walk or strike out any batters.

    German threw 39 pitches, 27 of which were strikes, in his first game action of the campaign. The right-hander is rehabbing from a right shoulder impingement that first popped up during the offseason. He's expected to stretch out as a starter during his time in the minors, though it's unclear how long the rehab assignment will last.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Starting rehab assignment Wednesday

    German (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Single-A Tampa, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Since German has been on the injured list all season with right shoulder impingement syndrome, he'll likely require several outings in the minors before being activated. German has made 56 of his 70 appearances with the Yankees over the past three seasons as a starter, but unless the big club endures a rash of injuries to its rotation in the weeks to come, he'll likely have to settle for a relief role once he's reinstated. German still has a minor-league option remaining, so the Yankees could choose to send him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre at the conclusion of his rehab assignment if the organization is still keen on having him stay stretched out for starting duties.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Cleared for rehab assignment

    German (shoulder) threw three innings of live batting practice Wednesday and has been cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    German had to face hitters once more prior to returning to game action in the minors, and he'll now be able to begin a rehab assignment after getting through his throwing session without any issues. The right-hander will likely require several rehab starts before returning from the injured list, and the Yankees plan to build him up as a starter during his time with a minor-league affiliate.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Not quite ready for rehab stint

    German (shoulder) will toss three innings against live hitters Wednesday before heading out on a minor-league rehab assignment, Max Goodman of reports.

    Previous reports indicated that German would make his next throwing appearance in a minor-league uniform, but the organization has instead decided to have him toss one more session of live batting practice. If that goes well, it is expected that the right-hander will then join a minor-league squad for what will probably be an extended rehab assignment. German will likely be built up as a starter during the rehab stint, per Bryan Hoch of

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Slated for rehab assignment

    German (shoulder) will next throw as part of a minor-league rehab assignment, Marly Rivera of reports.

    German tossed a three-inning simulated game Thursday and has come far enough in his recovery from a right shoulder impingement to embark on a rehab assignment in the minors. Since he hasn't yet logged any game action this season, it is likely that German will need multiple rehab outings before the Yankees consider bringing him up to the majors.

  • Yankees' Domingo German: Rehab assignment imminent

    German (shoulder) will likely throw multiple innings the next time he tosses from a mound, and that could soon be followed by a rehab assignment, Brian Hall of reports.

    German has yet to pitch this season as a result of shoulder issues that have been bothering him since January, but he appears to be moving close to a minor-league rehab assignment. The right-hander is likely still weeks away from being ready to return to the majors, and it's unclear if he'll even have a spot on the big-league roster when he's back to full health.
