German is not expected to have his innings capped for the season, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Even though German is at 120 innings pitched between the major-league club and Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre, the Yankees are not expected to restrict his innings at the end of the season. The right-hander missed several weeks with a hip flexor strain in June which helped to provide a natural limitation on innings, and the Yankees' report signals that he no longer has limitations. The 27-year-old carries an ERA of 3.96 with a 124:26 K:BB through 20 starts at the major-league level this season.
German will miss out on a two-start week with the Yankees deciding not to include him among their probable pitchers for the four-game weekend series with Cleveland, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
German won a fourth straight decision and claimed his MLB-leading 16th victory Tuesday against the Orioles, working seven frames and giving up two runs on five hits and one walk. Though the 27-year-old has been the team's most dependable starter this season, the Yankees are cognizant of managing his workload since he's already logged 120 innings between the majors and Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre, well above the 93.1 frames he totaled in 2018. The impending return of CC Sabathia (knee) to the rotation this weekend help the Yankees meet that goal, as German now lines up to make his next start on six days' rest (Aug. 20 in Oakland).
German is approaching an undetermined innings limit, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Though the number of innings German will be allowed to pitch has yet to be announced, general manager Brian Cashman has acknowledged that such a limit exists. Including Tuesday's victory over Baltimore -- his league-leading 16th of the season -- German has now tossed 120 innings this year (116 in the majors and four in the minors). His career high as a pro is 123.1 innings, set in 2014 while with the Marlins organization.
German (16-2) allowed two runs on five hits with one walk and seven strikeouts across seven frames to earn a victory against the Orioles on Tuesday.
While he gave up two solo home runs, German's domination of the AL East continued Tuesday. Against the Orioles, German improved to 4-0 with a 2.52 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 25 innings this season. German has seen his ERA increase since the beginning of July, but he's won seven of his last eight outings and took a no-decision in the other one. Behind that winning streak, he leads the league with 16 victories and has a 3.96 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 124 strikeouts in 116 innings this season. German will face the Indians next at home Sunday.
German (15-2) got the win against the Blue Jays on Thursday, giving up four runs (three earned) on eight hits over five innings, striking out three and walking one as the Yankees picked up a 12-6 victory.
It wasn't his sharpest stat line, but German did enough to rack up yet another win, giving him 15 on the season in 17 decisions. His 4.05 ERA isn't spectacular, but the right-hander's 1.12 WHIP and 117:25 K:BB are both impressive, and he's well on pace to record a 20-win season pitching for a Yankees team that has been consistently providing him with great run support.
German (14-2) earned the win versus Boston on Saturday, tossing seven innings and giving up two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out seven.
German was backed by heavy offensive support but gave the Yankees a strong outing nonetheless. The right-hander was nicked for solo homers by Andrew Benintendi in the second inning and Jackie Bradley Jr. in the fifth but is now one of four pitchers tied for the major-league lead with 14 victories. He'll carry a 3.98 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 114:24 K:BB over 104 innings into his next start Thursday in Toronto.
German (13-2) earned the win versus Boston on Sunday, tossing 5.1 innings and giving up three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out nine.
Tasked with preventing the rival Red Sox from sweeping the four-game series, German took advantage of an early 4-0 lead to frustrate Boston hitters and pick up the big win. He allowed a two-run homer to Andrew Benintendi in the fourth inning and a run-scoring groundout in the sixth but controlled the tempo of the game by pounding the zone, throwing 57 of 77 pitches for strikes and whiffing nine batters. With the victory, German is now tied for the American League lead in wins with 13 in only 18 starts. He'll carry a 4.08 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 107:24 K:BB over 97 innings into his next start, a rematch against Boston in New York on Saturday.
German allowed eight earned runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out three across 3.2 innings Tuesday against the Twins. He did not factor into the decision.
German managed a clean first inning but struggled from there forward. While he escaped the second frame by surrendering just one earned run, he allowed two hits and two walks -- a sign of further trouble to come. Prior to being pulled, German went on to allow three home runs, capped by a three-run shot by Miguel Sano. German entered the contest on the heels of three consecutive quality starts, and still has a solid 3.38 ERA and 1.06 WHIP across 88 innings for the season. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, currently scheduled for Sunday at Boston.
German (12-2) got the win against in Game 1 of the Yankees' doubleheader against Rays on Thursday, giving up two earned runs on four hits over six innings, striking out five and walking two in a 6-2 victory.
The right-hander continues to rack up victories, tossing another quality start in this contest to give him 12 wins in 15 starts this season. His numbers are good, too, as he's sporting a solid 3.38 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP and a 95:21 K:BB over 88 innings in what can safely be called a breakout campaign for the 26-year-old. He'll look to keep it rolling in his next start, which is scheduled for a Tuesday road matchup against the Twins.
German's scheduled start against the Rays on Wednesday was postponed due to inclement weather.
The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Thursday, with German starting Game 1, per Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. Since returning from the injured list at the beginning of July, German is 2-0 with a 0.75 ERA, 0.67 WHIP and 13:0 K:BB in 12 innings (two starts).
German (11-2) tossed six scoreless innings Friday against the Blue Jays, striking out seven and walking none while giving up just three hits. He picked up the win.
He induced 13 swings and misses on his curveball alone in this outing, which is tied for the second-most by a Yankees hurler since 2008 (the pitch-tracking era), per Sarah Langs of MLB.com. German's hook may not have a national reputation yet, but it is one of the game's best breaking balls. He hit a bit of a rough patch in four starts from May 21 through June 7 (7.32 ERA, 1.53 WHIP), but has been mostly excellent this season. German will have a more challenging matchup Wednesday against the Rays.
German (10-2) earned the win Wednesday against the Mets after giving up one run on five hits across six innings. He had six strikeouts and didn't issue a walk.
German served up a home run to Jeff McNeil on the first pitch of the game, but he quickly settled in and silenced the Mets the rest of the evening. The 26-year-old needed only 80 pitches Wednesday, and he likely would have worked deeper into the game were it not his first start off the injured list. German will enter the All-Star break with a 3.67 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 83:19 K:BB over 76 innings.
The Yankees reinstated German (hip) from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Mets.
Relieved Stephen Tarpley was sent to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in a corresponding move, clearing the way for German to make his first appearance with the big club since June 7. German tossed 65 pitches while covering four innings in his lone rehab start at Triple-A last week, so he'll likely be subject to a more restricted workload than normal in his first outing back from the IL.
German (hip) is expected to rejoin the Yankees' starting rotation Wednesday against the Mets, Mark Fischer of the New York Post reports.
German pitched in a rehab game with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, allowing four runs on four hits over four innings, including two homers. Still, the 26-year-old was fairly sharp overall and delivered 41 of his 65 pitches for strikes. German had a 2.60 ERA and 0.98 WHIP through his first 10 starts of the year, but he gave up 14 runs over his last three starts while laboring through the hip strain before landing on the injured list June 9.
German (hip) will make a rehab start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
It will be the first rehab appearance for German, who has been on the 10-day injured list since June 9 with a hip injury. Assuming he comes through without any setbacks, the right-hander will be on track to rejoin the Yankees after they return from their London series with the Red Sox, which takes place June 29-30. He was having a great season before landing on the IL, with a 3.86 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 77:19 K:BB through 70 innings.
German (hip) is expected to rejoin the starting rotation prior to the All-Star break, which begins July 7, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.
German resumed throwing earlier this week after receiving a cortisone injection as he continues his recovery from a left hip strain. According to Coley Harvey of ESPN.com, the 26-year-old completed a bullpen session Friday and has another one scheduled for Monday before potentially making a minor-league rehab start.
German (hip) played catch Monday and is set to do so again Tuesday, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
German was able to play catch for the first time since suffering a left hip strain, and he also noted that he is no longer experiencing any pain following a cortisone injection. Assuming Tuesday's throwing session is successful, expect German to continue to progress through a throwing program and ramp up his baseball activities.
German (hip) will receive a cortisone injection Tuesday, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
German received good news from his MRI on Monday, and the hope is that the right-hander will be able to continue throwing on the side if he responds well to Tuesday's injection. Look for an updated timetable for his return to emerge once he's able to resume mound work.
Manager Aaron Boone said Monday that German's (hip) MRI looked good, though the tests are still being examined by team doctors, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
German was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a strained left hip flexor, an injury he had been pitching through since May 26 in Kansas City. The initial prognosis appears promising, but the pitcher's return timeline remains unclear.
The Yankees placed German on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a left hip flexor strain, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
Lefty reliever Stephen Tarpley was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and was added to the active roster in a corresponding move, but the Yankees will require a replacement in the rotation for German during next week's series with the White Sox. Chance Adams seemingly represents the top candidate to join the rotation in place of German, who had posted an 8.59 ERA and 1.64 in his last three outings after claiming wins in each of his prior six decisions. The Yankees should provide further word within the upcoming days whether German's injury is something that will sideline him beyond the minimum amount of time.
