Yankees News: Domingo Acevedo Recalled from Double-A TrentonJuly 21, 2018
Looking for an extra arm to help their pitching staff, the New York Yankees promoted right-hander Domingo Acevedo.
The team announced prior to Saturday's game against the New York Mets that Acevedo was recalled from Double-A Trenton.
Following Friday's 7-5 loss to the Mets, the Yankees sent Domingo German down to Triple-A.
"Definitely, it's not what you want, right? You want to pitch up here," German told reporters. "At the same time, I understand why. I've got to go down to Triple-A and work on certain things that I need to improve to help me get back on track."
German has struggled with a 5.68 ERA and 15 homers allowed in 19 appearances this season.
MLB.com ranked Acevedo as New York's seventh-best prospect, noting his "fastball has been clocked as high as 103 mph" and that he complements it with a "plus changeup" and mid-80s slider.
Acevedo, 24, has a 2.84 ERA with 40 strikeouts and 39 hits allowed over 50.2 innings in 11 appearances, including eight starts, at Double-A.
