Domingo German is a right handed pitcher in the New York Yankees farm system. At just 25 years old, the Yankees No. 21 prospect seems to have a promising future ahead of him.
German has a solid fastball and good off speed pitches. He also has the potential to develop a nasty curveball. In 2014, the Yankees acquired German in a trade that sent Martin Prado and David Phelps to the Miami Marlins.
German has been with Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season in the minors. His combined record is 6-6 with a 2.94 ERA. In 98 innings pitched, he has walked 29 batters and struck out 107. He pitched well this afternoon against the Durham Bulls. He pitched seven shutout innings and gave up four hits. German walked two batters and struck out nine.
German actually has pitched in five games in the majors this season, but he struggled a little bit. His ERA was 3.38 and he gave up seven walks and struck out 11 batters in 10.2 innings.
Michael Pineda is a free agent at the end of the season and the Yankees probably won’t resign him. Masahiro Tanaka is under contract for another couple of seasons, but he could opt out at the end of the season.
It is better if Domingo German finishes the 2017 season with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders. They are in possible contention to win a second straight Triple-A championship. German could very well be last year’s Jordan Montgomery.
German reminds me of current Yankees pitcher Luis Severino. German could very well be the number three or four starter next season for the New York Yankees. He will be a solid MLB pitcher for the next decade.
