Yankees to start with Domingo German

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports
  • German (1-2) will make his fifth start of the season for the Yankees. He has a 4.50 ERA and has struck out 25 batters in 20 2/3 innings.
  • The right-hander’s last game was Friday against the Toronto Blue Jays. In six innings, he gave up five hits and four earned runs.
  • German wants to make his third straight start that lasts five innings or more. He averages five frames per start.
  • In one German start this season, the Yankees were the favorites on the moneyline, and they lost.
  • In German’s four starts, his team has a record of 1-3.
  • In each of German’s four starts with a total this season, his team has fallen short of the total.
  • In his last game against the Twins, Domingo German dominated them and came close to pitching a perfect game as the Yankees defeated them 6-1 on Saturday afternoon. The Minnesota attempt to spoil his great day by accusing him of using sticky substances, which resulted in a substance test and a warning to clean his hands, failed to materialize. They couldn’t stop Domingo German from enjoying the finest start of his career, as he got the first 15 batters out, striking 10 out.

Yankees Injured List: Giancarlo Stanton, Jonathan Loaisiga, Tommy Kahnle, Josh Donaldson, Frankie Montas, Lou Trivino, Harrison Bader, Carlos Rodon, Luis Severino, Luis Gil, Scott Effross, Ben Rortvedt.
