German was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday due to right shoulder inflammation.
German allowed two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out five over four innings in a no-decision against Miami on Saturday. He was pulled for a pinch hitter in the fifth frame, but it's unclear if that move was related to his injury. Albert Abreu was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilke-Barre to take German's place on the active roster.
German allowed one run on a hit and a walk while striking out 10 over seven-plus innings in a no-decision versus the Red Sox on Sunday.
German carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning, but he allowed a leadoff double to Alex Verdugo. Jonathan Loaisiga came on in relief and proceeded to melt down as the Red Sox rallied for five runs to deny German the win after a stellar start. The 28-year-old dropped his ERA to 4.45 with a 1.17 WHIP and 90:23 K:BB through 93 innings. He'll look to stay in good form next weekend in Miami.
German didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against the Phillies after allowing two runs on three hits and three walks while fanning five across four innings.
German was never expected to pitch deep into this game considering he was on three days of rest, but he still tossed 41 of his 70 pitches for strikes while limiting the damage across the board. The right-hander has gone eight straight outings without completing the five-inning threshold, though. His next start is scheduled for the upcoming weekend series against the Red Sox on the road.
German is listed as the Yankees' probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Max Goodman of SI.com reports.
German will be pitching on three days' rest after he made a relief appearance in Friday's 4-0 loss to the Red Sox, but because he only tossed one inning (17 pitches), it was comparable to a between-starts bullpen session. As such, German shouldn't face any major restrictions with his pitch count Tuesday as he steps back into the rotation.
German allowed a hit in a scoreless inning during Friday's 4-0 loss to Boston.
German was initially projected to start Thursday before that contest was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak. Instead of pushing him back a day, the Yankees elected to start Jordan Montgomery. Friday was the third time in 18 appearances German has worked in a relief role. The right-hander has a 4.39 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 75:19 K:BB across 82 innings overall. It's unclear when he'll next be available to make a start.
German won't pitch Thursday against the Red Sox after the game was postponed due to the Yankees' COVID-19 issues, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
The Yankees are reportedly dealing with positive COVID-19 tests within their organization, so it's not yet clear when the team could take the field next. The club hasn't yet announced its pitching plans going forward.
German (tooth) earned a hold against the Mariners on Wednesday, pitching three innings and allowing three unearned runs on two hits and no walks while striking out five.
German was scratched from his scheduled start after undergoing an emergency root canal earlier in the day, but he had recovered enough by the beginning of the game to be available out of the bullpen. The right-hander ended up completing three innings and throwing 47 pitches, 34 of which went for strikes. He gave up a three-run home run to Tom Murphy in the fifth frame, but all three runs that scored were unearned because the inning started with a Gio Urshela error. German set down the side in order in each of his other two frames and looked good overall considering his tooth issue. He is unlikely to rejoin the rotation until after the All-Star break given him workload Wednesday.
German was scratched from Wednesday's start in Seattle after he underwent an emergency root canal, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Nick Nelson will start Wednesday's contest, though manager Aaron Boone said German will be available to enter the game if necessary. The skipper added that German may be ready to start Friday in Houston.
German did not factor in the decision against the Angels on Wednesday, completing three innings and allowing three runs on three hits and three walks while striking out two.
The right-hander's night was over after rain halted play before the fourth inning, but he likely wouldn't have gone much longer anyway after throwing 72 pitches through three frames. German gave up two first-inning runs and another in the second, and he left the bases loaded in the third (though the inning would have been over after four batters if not for an error). The poor appearance extended a stretch of four straight subpar starts for the hurler, who has posted a 9.98 ERA, 2.09 WHIP and 13:7 K:BB across 15.1 innings during that stretch. He'll attempt to the right the ship his next time out, which is likely to take place early next week at Seattle.
German (4-5) took the loss Friday, giving up four runs (three earned) on five hits and a walk in a 5-3 loss to the Red Sox. He struck out three.
The right-hander tossed 72 pitches (46 strikes) before getting the hook with the Yankees in a 4-3 hole, and they weren't able to find an equalizer. German has failed to complete five innings in three straight starts and hasn't lasted six frames in six straight, going 0-3 with a 6.28 ERA and 24:8 K:BB through 28.2 IP over that stretch.
German did not factor in the decision against Oakland on Saturday despite allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out two.

He failed to set down the side in order in any frame and was ousted during the fifth inning for the second straight contest. After registering a 2.35 ERA across nine starts from April 22 to June 6, German has surrendered 11 combined earned runs over 8.1 innings across his past two starts. He'll try to get back on track when he faces Boston on the road next weekend.

He tentatively lines up to make his next appearance at home against the Athletics on Saturday.

German allowed three earned runs on three hits and no walks while striking out five across five innings Tuesday against the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.
German allowed only three baserunners in the start, but each of them came around to score thanks to two home runs. Long balls have been a consistent problem for German this season, as he's allowed multiple shots in five of his 10 starts and is surrendering 1.8 HR/9. Even so, he's maintained a solid 3.27 ERA with a very strong 52:10 K:BB across 55 innings on the campaign.
German (4-3) allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out five across 5.2 innings, taking the loss to the Blue Jays on Thursday.
German made very few mistakes in the loss; however, the Blue Jays took full advantage of them with a pair of home runs by Bo Bichette and Marcus Semien. The 28-year-old is having a solid season with a 3.06 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP through 50 innings. He is averaging just one walk per five innings pitched. Currently, he is not scheduled to start in the Yankees' next six games.
German and the Yankees won't play the Blue Jays on Wednesday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather in New York.
The two sides will make up the game as part of a doubleheader Thursday. Expect German to start one of the two games, with Jordan Montgomery likely to start the other contest.

German turned in a lights-out performance, blanking his opponent for the second time this season while stretching out for a tied for season-long seven innings of work. The 28-year-old took advantage of solid command as he did not issue any free passes for the first time this year. German has now posted quality starts in five of his last six outings, going 4-0 over that span. On the season, the right-hander is pitching to the tune of a 3.05 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. He's slated to take the mound again at home Wednesday against Toronto.
German (3-2) picked up the win in Saturday's 8-2 victory over the Orioles, allowing one run on four hits and two walks over six innings while striking out six.
The Yankees handed him a 3-0 lead before he even set foot on the mound in Baltimore, and German kept the O's off the board until his final inning of work. The right-hander fired 53 of 80 pitches for strikes in his second straight quality start and fourth of the year, and he'll take a 3.62 ERA and 37:8 K:BB through 37.1 innings into his next outing.

German tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Baltimore on Saturday.
