Yankees Activate Domingo Germán from Injured List

One year ago tomorrow.

As expected, the Yankees have activated Domingo Germán (hip) from the 10-day injured list. He will pitch tonight’s game against the Mets.

The 26-year-old has a 9-2 record with a 3.86 ERA (4.10 FIP) in 70 innings this year, striking out 26% of the batters he faces and walking only 6%. German was a legitimate ace for the first part of the season, though he’d struggled before being placed on the IL. Hopefully that’s corrected itself. This also means that Chad Green can return to the back-end of the bullpen, where he belongs. Hooray for that!

The corresponding move was to option Stephen Tarpley back to Triple-A. The 26-year-old has a 9.64 ERA (8.14 FIP) in just 9.1 innings this year. I expect we’ll see him again this year. He’s a part of the Scranton bullpen shuttle, after all.

    I wonder if he gets optioned down right after the start. This will allow him to make a minor league start during the all star break as his turn won’t be needed for at least 10 days (assuming he slots in 3, 4 or 5 after the break)

    With the Yankees playing 4 games on the turf, and TB starting at least 2 lefties (Snell, McKay), you have to wonder if they call up Frazier to spell some of the OFs. Tauchman against lefties is not a great option, especially with Yankees missing both Voit and Stanton from the lineup.

    They must really fear using Happ and CC.

      They’re pitching this weekend. You can pitch Happ today and German tomorrow, or do what they’re doing to get the rotation in the order they want. If they “feared” something, those guys wouldn’t be starting against their division rivals.

        Neither started against the Sox in London. That speaks volumes about “fear.’
