the Yankees activate the German Domingo; Jameson Taillon begins a rehabilitation mission


The Yankees reinstated the right-hander Domingo German from the 10-day injured list. Voltigeur Estevan Florial was optioned to Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre in a corresponding move. Additionally, New York announced that Jameson taillon will begin a minor league rehab mission with Scranton tonight.

Germán returns after missing nearly two months with an inflamed shoulder. He had been a reliable late-rotation option for the Yankees in the early months of the season, throwing 97 ERA 4.45-ball innings in 21 appearances (including 18 starts). The 29-year-old posted strong catches and goals numbers, contributing to a more appealing 4.02 SIERA, but he was a little too prone to the home run ball.

While Germán served almost exclusively as a starter earlier this year, it seems likely that he will be working from the bullpen for the stretch race. With the regular season dwindling, the Yankees sent Germán on a rather brief rehab mission in which he made two appearances with the RailRiders. He topped out at 35 pitches in his last outing, so he looks likely to fill a multi-innings relief role similar to that Luis Severino took last night.

Taillon has only been out of the club for two weeks due to a partial tear in the tendon in his right ankle. Considering this shorter absence, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he’s back in the majors after a lonely start to rehab. Acquired from the Pirates in the offseason, Taillon has a 4.41 / 4.29 SIERA ERA in his first year in the Bronx.

The Yankees come into play tonight with a half-game return in a busy American League Wild Card run. Following tonight’s series final against the Rangers, they will play a road series against the two clubs directly ahead of them in the standings – the Red Sox and Blue Jays – before ending the year at home against a squad. des Rays who appear to have won the AL East by then.
