Yankees Domingo German has suspended 81 domestic violence games



The Yankees learned on Thursday that Domingo German, the young pitcher who won the team last season, will be suspended until the beginning of June due to Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy.

The league announced that the 27-year-old German had accepted an unpaid ban of 81 games due to an incident in September in which the German and his girlfriend, with whom he has at least one child, participated in his residence in Yonkers were. No criminal complaints have been filed against the German, who has agreed not to appeal the suspension.

German was put on administrative leave on September 19 as M.L.B. an investigation began, and he did not appear in regular season or postseason games for the rest of the year. During the investigation, he was banned from 18 games, which is why he was not approved for the Yankees' first 63 games this season. The 64th game of the Yankees is scheduled for June 5.

Since he has already missed a postseason due to the violation, the German can participate if the Yankees qualify for the postseason 2020 (although he is not allowed to participate in spring training games).
