New York Yankees director Aaron Boone said he had a discussion with Domingo German about his enigmatic Instagram post on the day he got back to the group following an aggressive behavior at home suspension.
“Everything is over,” German wrote in Spanish on Wednesday.
German deleted his posts, then wrote: “I’m ready” in Spanish.
“Certainly, we’re paying attention to that stuff,” Boone said Thursday. “When I first heard about it last night and saw it and it was brought to my attention, I was taken aback a little bit and immediately concerned, but do feel like maybe a little bit out of context, a little bit overblown.
“And I am comfortable that he’s doing fine and doing well and ready to compete. But it is something that we’ll continue to watch and as best we can try and make sure that he’s in a good place. But I had the conversation about trying to be as smart and choosy as we can being about some of the things we’re expressing publicly.”
German was 18-4 with a 4.03 ERA in 2019 when he was put on regulatory leave that Sept. 19 while Major League Baseball examined a supposed abusive behavior at home episode including his better half, with whom he has at any rate one kid. He missed the last nine rounds of the 2019 customary season and every one of the nine of New York’s postseason games.
He was suspended for 81 games on Jan. 2 a year ago, a boycott that had 63 games left. He missed the whole 2020 season and end of the season games.
Yankees reliever Zack Britton would not say whether German expected to talk with partners about what occurred.
“That’s a tough question. I don’t think he owes anything to me,” Britton said. “I think it’s off-the-field stuff that he needs to take care of. I think sometimes you don’t get to control who your teammates are. I mean, that’s the situation. I don’t agree with what he did. I don’t think it has any place in the game or off the field, at all. … I think that’s something that he’s going to have to deal with on his own and make better choices going forward.”
