The Yankees have seen enough of Domingo German.
After another bad outing on Friday night in the Bronx, the Yankees announced they optioned German back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and announced Luis Cessa will replace him in the rotation.
German has shown spurts of great pitching, but mostly it has been struggles surrounding the 25-year-old rookie. Before the All-Star break, German threw a dud against the Indians, allowing six earned runs on five hits and four walks over four innings.
Tonight was the Yankees' last straw, and the righty didn't help his cause.
He allowed four runs on five hits while striking out three and walking two over 3.2 innings. Over his last seven games (six starts), German owns a 6.52 ERA with 31 hits allowed and a 1.45 WHIP.
Cessa threw a gem in his final outing with the Yankees before being sent back down to Triple-A. He didn't allow a run on three hits while striking out four and walking three over six innings against the Orioles. With the Yankees this season, he owns a 3.00 ERA and 1.27 WHIP.
