New York Yankees pitcher Domingo German has been suspended 10 games for his use of a foreign substance in a game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

German was ejected in the fourth inning on May 16, 2023 in a game against the Toronto Blue Jays for having his hand coated with something tackier than rosin.

The instant I looked at his hand, it was extremely shiny and extremely sticky. It’s the stickiest hand I’ve ever felt. My fingers had a hard time coming off his palm.

German made his MLB debut on June 11, 2017. German primarily throws a four-seam fastball, a slider, a curveball, and a changeup. He has displayed good command of his pitches and the ability to generate strikeouts.

German had his breakout year for the Yankees in 2019 where he finished the season with an 18-4 record, a 4.03 ERA, and 153 strikeouts in 143 innings pitched.

What are MLB fans saying about the Domingo German suspension?

When you cheat and still won’t win the division.

Yankees are a bunch of cheaters who get to do it freely. Didn’t this happen a few weeks ago? Judge “looking” at the dugout for signs!

I speak for all baseball fans when I say nobody is shocked.
