Pittsburgh Pirates "Frontrunners" For Pitcher With Perfect Game On His Resume

The Pittsburgh Pirates have emerged as one of the finalists for pitcher Domingo Germán.

Germán, who had a notable stint with the New York Yankees, achieved some success, including throwing the 24th perfect game in MLB history.

However, his time with the Yankees concluded five months after this achievement, as the team decided to part ways with him.

Germán elected free agency after the Yankees intended to reassign him to the minors, a decision that came amidst a period marked by personal challenges and on-field inconsistencies for the pitcher.

During his tenure with the Yankees, Germán showcased his potential, especially with his perfect game, but also faced hurdles.

He entered treatment for alcohol rehab and had a history of an off-the-field incident that led to a suspension.

He concluded his final season with the Yankees with a 4.56 ERA over 108.2 innings.

The Pirates' interest in Germán signifies a potential new chapter for the pitcher, offering him an opportunity to revitalize his career in a new environment.

This move could be mutually beneficial, providing the Pirates with a pitcher looking to rebound and contribute to their success. Photo Credit: Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports
