Following last nights shitastic start from Domingo German the Yankees optioned him back to their AAA affiliate Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. German who seemed promising when he first got called up has been nothing short of horrendous. In his last 7 starts German is 1-2 with a 6.52 ERA…. yeah I’m sorry you’re not winning ballgames when your starter is getting shelled for 4-7 runs a game in 3 innings of work.
Luis Cessa is getting the call to come back to the Majors. It’s not a huge upgrade but Cessa has proved he can be a lot more serviceable than German. A lot of fans are up in arms that Justus Sheffield isn’t being called up yet. First of he’s still very young, he has a lot to work on and if he was ready and management felt he was ready he would be here. So let’s calm down people.
Also today the Yankees called up Domingo Acevedo. He is currently the Yankees #7 prospect. He won’t be in the starting rotation but any means but they will more than likely use him for a couple innings out of the bullpen. Let me tell you I am super excited to see what Acevedo is capable of. He has a fastball that is capable of peaking over 100 mph. He has a somewhat of an unusual delivery which is hard for the batters to pick up the pitch out of his hand.
It’s a good day knowing German is nowhere near the Bronx now. Because after yesterday I want to shoot him and Chasen Shreve into the sun with a makeshift Elon Musk rocket.
