No, Domingo Germán is not retired despite cryptic Instagram message.
Yankees pitcher, Domingo Germán, was in the headlines again, this time for an assumed retirement after a cryptic Instagram post saying goodbye to baseball. Fans and media alike assumed this was his swan song and that’s clearly what he was leaning towards in that post but that isn’t how he feels anymore.
“I’ve left baseball, thanks everyone,” he wrote originally (translated to English).
On Saturday evening he clarified that comment and announced he wasn’t actually retiring.
“I am very sorry for the unsettling post last night,” Germán wrote. “This past year has been very tough for my family and myself, for which I take full responsibility.”
Though he isn’t retiring he does still have 63 games remaining on his MLB suspension for violating the league’s domestic violence policy in 2019.
“Baseball is my life and I promise I am not walking away,” he wrote.
