BRADENTON, FL: Free agent RHP Domingo Germán and the Pittsburgh Pirates are in agreement on a one-year, $1.25 million deal. The minor league deal includes a MLB camp invite. The deal also includes a 2025 club option worth $2.25 million, per Jon Heyman of The New York Post.


Germán, 31, had his 2023 season cut short after being placed on the MLB’s restricted list in August after a clubhouse incident in which he reportedly showed up intoxicated, confronted manager Aaron Boone, flipped a couch and destroyed a TV.


Germán has had a troubled past and now looks to make the most of his second chance. The Pirates are a young club who has added multiple quality veterans, Germán being the next.


Germán has spent six seasons with the Bronx Bombers and has showed flashes of being a good piece in a starting rotation. Germán also was apart of some history in his own sense when he pitched the fourth Yankees franchise perfect game against the Oakland Athletics.


Germán’s 2023 season saw him pitch to a 4.41 ERA across 108.2 innings. His six years in New York amounted to a 4.41 ERA. Germán can easily be a solid addition to the Pirates rotation as he looks to shine in the Steel City.
