In 2017, Domingo Germán made his first appearance in the majors, pitching seven innings of relief for the Yankees and finishing 0-1, 3.14.
His first start came on May 6th, when he replaced an injured Jordan Montgomery in the Yankees’ starting rotation, in a game against the Cleveland Indians.
He pitched six scoreless innings with two walks and nine strikeouts before exiting due to pitch count restrictions.
Dellin Betances and Jonathan Holder surrendered four runs over the next two innings, but Gleyber Torres’ walk-off three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning capped a Yankees comeback that saw them score three runs in the eighth inning and then four in the ninth against Cody Allen and Dan Otero.
To make room for German as a regular starter after Montgomery’s season was cut short by surgery, the former reliever made four starts and lost three of them, giving up at least four runs in each of them.
On June 14th, he eventually got his first win when he surrendered just three runs in six innings in a 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, due to a three-run homer by Torres.
His record was 2-6, 5.57 in 21 appearances, 14 of which were starts. More than 100 batters were struck out in 85 2/3 innings of work by this pitcher.
