The Yankees have placed RHP Domingo German on the 10-day IL with a left hip flexor strain, the team announced on Sunday. 

After having a solid start to the season, German has faltered lately. He allowed just two homers in his first seven starts of the season, but his last six has seen 10 long balls. His latest start against the Indians on Friday saw four earned runs over six innings, that included two homers. 

This injury, though, may the reason for German's lack of control and accuracy of his arsenal. Overall, he is still having a good season, as he is tied for the league lead in wins with nine. He also owns a modest 3.86 ERA over 70 innings of work with 77 strikeouts. 

The corresponding move for German hitting the IL is LHP Stephen Tarpley getting called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The Yankees optioned struggling reliever Chad Green to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old right-hander, who excelled in 2017 and 2018 after transitioning from a starting role to the bullpen, has a 16.43 ERA in 7.2 inning so far this season.

He nearly cost the Yankees the game Tuesday night when he allowed four runs. In his previous outing he allowed three runs without recording an out.

The Yankees were supposed to ride the strength of their bullpen to many victories this season, but instead it is coughing up leads on a regular basis.

With right-handed reliever Dellin Betances on the injured list, the Yankees pen has been somewhat porous, creating some short term issues and -- worse -- setting the stage for potentially long term affects.

Things to know about Sunday's game

1) J.A. Happ's first appearance of the season got off to a rough start, allowing a three-run home run in the first inning. It didn't get too much better, as Happ lasted just four innings to the tune of four runs, five hits (two homers), one walk and three strikeouts.

While the Yankees did not splurge on stars Manny Machado or Bryce Harper as many expected, the club completed a big trade and spread out its wealth for roster additions in free agency in an effort to supplement its incredibly talented young core.

Let's take a look at the 2019 Yankees, a team that sports an Opening Day payroll of approximately $204 million, according to Cot's Baseball Contracts ($226 million-plus for competitive balance tax purposes), as they embark on their yearly quest for a World Series title.

The Yankees have left Tampa but are making a pit stop in the nation's capitol where they will play the Washington Nationals in an exhibition game on Monday at 5:05 p.m. 

Yankees notes

The Yankees' lineup on Monday will likely resemble their Opening Day lineup this Thursday. Luke Voit is batting cleanup but will be the DH as DJ LeMahieu will play first base and bat ninth. ... Troy Tulowitzki, who hit just .219 with three home runs and seven RBI this spring, will bat eighth while Brett Gardner remains the mainstay atop the Yankees' lineup and gets the start in center field.

The Yankees are exactly one week away from opening their 2019 season against the Orioles in the Bronx, and the battles to make the 25-man roster when camp breaks are coming down to the wire. Injuries continue to plague this squad, with Greg Bird the latest to receive medical attention after he was hit by a pitch in the elbow. Luckily, that isn't expected to be a big deal, but other Yankees may not be so lucky when the season kicks off.

Here's how we see things shaking out in our 25-man Roster Prediction 3.0...

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said he could envision his team using openers on some circumstances, especially considering two starting pitchers are dealing with injuries.

With Luis Severino being shut down for two weeks due to rotator cuff inflammation and CC Sabathia expected to start the season on the injured list, Boone said on Wednesday he wouldn't rule out the use of openers -- using relief pitchers to pitch the first inning or two of a game in an assurance to face the opponents' 1-3 hitters -- in 2019.

"I could see it being something we consider from time to time," Boone said, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey. "I don't see it a lot, but yeah, I could see it coming into play on certain occasions."
