This guy is amazing but not sure he is for real.  He might be overvalued in drafts next season.

He really has only one good pitch.  As good as his curveball is it is not unbelievably good.

 

well see where he goes.  i might also pass if hes overvalued

What are you basing this notion upon?  I assure you he has more than one good pitch.  Even if we just rely solely on pitch value (which - important note - is just essentially the ERA of a given pitch in a given season, and should not be equated with a “better-than-average” pitch), German’s change has a good pitch value as well - even better than the curve.

What's up with this for the first week of playoffs.....CBS has him penciled in for a start on Sunday, Sept 15th vs. Toronto, do you think he gets a start this week ? 

 

Yankees' Domingo German: Piggybacking Sabathia on Wednesday
14 hrs ago
German's next appearance will come in relief of CC Sabathia on Wednesday in Detroit, as the Yankees manage his workload and prepare him for the relief role he will likely occupy in October, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

 

It will be a piggyback situation. Sabathia has not logged more than 4.1 innings in an outing since July 16, so he and German could each log between three and four innings before turning it over to the actual relievers. This will give German a chance to qualify for a win, but it also makes him somewhat reliant on Sabathia keeping the lead. German has thrown 140.2 total innings this year after throwing 94 innings in 2018, so it's understandable that the Yankees want to dial back his usage.

Take it this guys finished as a SP?

 

looks like it unfortunately. I expect him to pitch Tuesday (Severino starting) or Wednesday (CC starting) as a bulk reliever.

It was a great run as a SP. . .just an innings issue which German is frustrated with himself.
