Right-hander Domingo Germán has been throwing off the mound and during his last bullpen session, he was able to throw all of his pitches, according to Yankees manager Aaron Boone.
“Everything is going according to plan,” Boone added Monday before the final game of the series at Yankee Stadium between the Rangers and Yankees.
The next hurdle Germán will have to overcome is facing live hitters. German began experiencing discomfort in his shooting shoulder in January, which delayed his shooting schedule. He was placed on the 60-day disabled list on March 18 after being diagnosed with right shoulder impingement syndrome.
The 29-year-old from Quito made 22 appearances (18 starts) with the Yankees last year, posting a 4.58 ERA over 98.1 innings.
In 2019, he was one of the club’s best starters, reaching a career-high 19.2 strikeouts per walk, along with a 4.03 earned run average in 143 innings, totaling a record 18.4.
