Domingo German to Be Called Up For Sunday’s Game

The New York Yankees are expected to call up pitching prospect Domingo German from Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre for Sunday ‘s game at Yankee Stadium versus the Baltimore Orioles according to NJ.com’s Brendan Kuty.

It was announced yesterday the struggling Masahiro Tanaka‘s start, which was originally scheduled for Sunday, was pushed back to Monday against the Angels in Anaheim. That left a void in the Yankees rotation that they will fill with Chad Green, with German being called up to work out of the bullpen.

German, 24, was promoted to Triple-A on May 18th. Since his call up he has pitched to a 2-1 record (three starts, four appearances) with a 3.76 ERA and 27 strikeouts.

He was acquired in the trade that brought Nathan Eovaldi and Garrett Jones to New York in exchange for David Phelps and Martin Prado. He features a fastball that can sit in the mid-90’s range with good breaking pitches to complement them.

Success starts with German locating his fastball. If he isn’t he can get into trouble, however, his pitches are good enough to work around not having his plus stuff in a start.

No corresponding move has been announced yet by New York but German is on the 40-man roster, making it easier for him to get the call-up.  Earlier this week we profile German, citing his need to find consistency on the mound.

The Yankees face the Orioles at 1:05 pm at Yankee Stadium. Kevin Gausman take the hill for Baltimore.
