Suspended pitcher Domingo German was involved in a car accident on Thursday in the Dominican Republic.
Manager Aaron Boone confirmed that the 27-year-old pitcher was in the crash — clarifying initial conflicting reports — but was uninjured.
“He’s fine,” Boone said. “He was in the car. Driver side, back seat. He’s been to the complex (in the Dominica Republic). He got checked out. He is fine.”
Two people were injured, including German’s girlfriend, who suffered a broken arm, according to DR outlet El Nuevo Diario.
German is working out on his own, per the Yankees decision, in the Dominican while his teammates train in Florida as he continues to serve out an 81-game suspension for domestic violence. He has 63 games remaining this season and is eligible to return to the team in June.
