The Yankees optioned Domingo German to their alternate site following Saturday’s game, the New York announced. A corresponding roster move has not yet been announced.

German’s first start on the season came on April 4 against the Blue Jays. The 28-year-old surrendered three runs in three innings, including a pair of home runs. It was German’s first start since posting 2.0 fWAR during the 2019 season. He went four innings on Saturday against the Rays giving up another pair of long balls. He gave up eight hits, one walk and four earned runs while striking out five.

The Yankees have not been getting much length out of their starters during their current three-game losing streak. As much as this move may very well be about German, the Yankees may also just want to add a fresh arm. Corey Kluber went just 2 1/3 innings on Friday, a game after Jameson Taillon was bumped after 4 2/3 innings in a contest that would go into extras.
