Yankees Editorial: Yankees Trade Value 30-26

26. P Domingo German
Domingo German came to the Yankees as the other part of the Nathan Eovaldi/Martin Prado deal, but to me, he could be the most interesting part of the the deal. German is just 22 years old, but had to be put on the 40-man roster because he was signed so young.
German made his way to the futures game last season, and on mlb.com’s list after the trade, was the Yankees eighth best prospect.
Here’s part of their scouting report on him:
"German stands out because of his combination of upside and ceiling with feel for pitching. He has a three-pitch mix. German’s fastball is a power sinker that sits in the 91-94 mph zone. His best secondary offering is his above-average changeup, and he has an advanced feel for the offspeed pitch already. German’s slider is a work in progress, thrown at 81-84 mph, but it’s still a little too slurvy at the moment. He’s generally been a strike-thrower throughout his brief Minor League career. German still remains somewhat raw, but his powerful arm should help him start to move through the Minor Leagues faster as he builds on his success."
