Yankees' Domingo German: Still viewed as fifth starter
Manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that he expects German to rejoin the Yankees when a fifth starter is next required April 24 in Cleveland, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.German was unable to carry his stellar results from spring training into his first two turns of the regular season, giving up seven runs on 12 hits and two walks over seven innings en route to taking losses to the Blue Jays and Rays. New York optioned German to its alternate site following Saturday's game in Tampa Bay, but based on Boone's comments, the right-hander's demotion wasn't due solely to his pair of poor outings. With a pair of off days in the next eight days, the Yankees will instead run a streamlined four-man rotation, so German will be parked at the alternate site in the short term to give the team an extra roster spot. German still appears to have the edge over Deivi Garcia and Michael King for the fifth starter's job.
Yankees' Domingo German: Optioned to alternate camp
German was optioned to the Yankees' alternate training site Saturday.German was charged with his second loss of the season Saturday as he allowed four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out five in four innings against the Rays. The Yankees aren't in need of a fifth starter in the near future since they have two upcoming days off, so German will get to work on things at the team's alternate camp following an underwhelming start to the 2021 campaign.
