The Dominican baseball player made two posts on social media in which he suggested that his MLB career would be over.
The Dominican pitcher of the New York Yankees, Domingo Germán, surprised everyone this Thursday by sharing a possible retirement from baseball on social networks.
The 27-year-old baseball player, who will not be able to play the 2020 MLB season because of a ban on an incident of domestic violence, suggested in a couple of posts on his official Instagram account that his career could be over.
At first, Germán posted a photo with the following message: “Everyone makes history on both sides, I think I made mine at Yankee Stadium. If I decide not to return, I will be proud of my effort during an 11-year career. God bless all who have supported me. “
But, in case he had left some doubts to his fans, the Dominican was in charge of clearing them with a publication in his “Instagram Stories”: “I left baseball. Thank you my people,” he wrote.
Germán has played three MLB seasons, all with the Yankees, and was a key part of the team that had 103 wins last season.
“I know he is in the United States visiting his son right now,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said after the Dominican’s posts. “Beyond that, I really don’t know much. I just heard something like that, but I really don’t have much to say about the situation,” he added.
In 2019, Germán led the Yankees in victories with an 18-4 record in 24 starts and posted an ERA of 4.03.
