2019 Fantasy Outlook
After opening the season in the minors, German was quickly summoned to the big club to fill a middle-relief role, and shortly thereafter he joined the rotation in place of the injured Jordan Montgomery. His first extended trial in the big-league rotation went about as expected for a young pitcher, with plenty of ups and downs that resulted in a 6.19 ERA and 10.4 K/9 in 14 starts (68.1 innings). He was sent to the minors in July and subsequently missed a month and a half due to a nerve issue in his elbow before returning to the Yankees for the final two weeks of the season. German flashed upside (14.9% swinging-strike rate), and the estimators suggest he was unlucky to finish with such a high ERA (4.39 FIP, 3.94 xFIP). Still, the Yankees aren't in a position to let him work things out as a starter, so he figures to open the season in a relief role, and it would likely take a trade for German to see meaningful innings in 2019.

September 25, 2019
German's period of administrative leave was extended through the end of the World Series by MLB and the MLBPA on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
German had already been ruled out through the postseason by the Yankees, so Wednesday's announcement merely makes his restriction official. His status for 2020 remains up in the air as the league investigates the incident that led to German's alleged violation of the Joint MLB-MLBPA Domestic Violence Policy.

Stat Review
How does Domingo German compare to other starting pitchers?
This section compares his stats with all starting pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 120 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2016
2015
After quietly putting up impressive numbers at every stop along the way in the minors, the 25-year-old finally got the chance to make his big-league debut in 2017. German performed solidly in his seven relief appearances, flashing his high strikeout ability with 18 strikeouts in 14.1 innings, though he also issued nine free passes in that time. Down in the minors, the righty was used mainly as a starter, posting a 2.83 ERA and 9.6 K/9 in 14 appearances (13 starts) with Triple-A Wilkes/Barre. Given his impressive track record in the minors, German will likely get a real look in camp with a chance to break spring training in the big-league bullpen, though it would likely be in a low-leverage role. Alternatively, New York could look to keep him stretched out as a starter in the minors, but either way the team's pitching depth will likely block him from seeing many meaningful innings.
Packaged as part of the deal that sent Nathan Eovaldi to the Bronx, German was shipped to the Yankees prior to the 2015 season but never got the chance to pitch for his new club. He suffered an elbow injury in the spring and underwent Tommy John surgery in early April, effectively ruling him out for most, if not all, of the first half of the upcoming season. Before that, the 23-year-old had dazzled at the lower levels with the Marlins, using a 94 mph fastball with a slider and changeup as his secondary offerings. Once healthy enough to return to the mound, German figures to move his way up the organizational ladder and should get his first chance at some of the higher levels in the minors.
German continues to climb the up the Marlins’ prospect ladder as he moved to Low-A Greensboro during his age-21 season. In addition to hurling a career-best 123.1 innings pitched while compiling a 9-3 record, 2.54 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 113 strikeouts compared to just 25 walks in 25 starts. The young righty works with a 94-mph fastball, slow looping slider and a work-in-progress changeup as he continues to develop the command he needs to be an efficient and effective starting pitcher. German should move up to High-A to begin 2015 and his progress against left-handed bats will be critical in determining just how quickly he can continue to move through the minors. The next step in his development will take place with the Yankees, after he was included in the December trade that sent Martin Prado to Miami.
