Yankees' Domingo Germán suspended 10 games after ejection for violating foreign substance policy

May 18, 2023

New York Yankees pitcher Domingo Germán was fined and hit with a 10-game suspension Wednesday for violating the league’s foreign substances rules.

Germán will not appeal his suspension, and it will start immediately. He will be eligible to return May 28 against the San Diego Padres.

The punishment came after Germán was ejected in the fourth inning of the team's 6-3 win Tuesday against the Toronto Blue Jays. Germán, crew chief James Hoye said, had the “stickiest hand I’ve ever felt.”

“My fingers had a hard time coming off his palm,” Hoye said, via The Associated Press.

Tuesday’s ejection marked at least the second time this season that officials have questioned Germán for violating the foreign substance rule. Hoye’s crew looked at him during a start he made last month against the Minnesota Twins, but he was allowed to stay in the game.
