Segment 3 - Domingo German
  • Statement from Domingo Germán, through Yankees PR: "It is important to me that I have the opportunity to speak directly with my teammates both individually and collectively and address them face to face before I speak to the media and our fans. This process has begun, but more time is needed, especially since half our team has yet to report to spring training. I recognize that speaking publicly will be an important step for me and I will do so in the upcoming days."
  • Aaron Boone said that Domingo Germán talked to the team (around 30 min.) Germán talked to pitchers and catchers as a group and addressed the position players separately. Boone: "It was a good step; something that was important to happen and gave everyone a chance to really start that conversation."
Segment 4 - Down on the FarmYankee Trivia
  • Name the Yankees pitcher who threw TWO no-hitters during the 1951 season.

Sauer struck out 17 batters in eight masterful innings against Double-A New Hampshire. He allowed only two hits and one run. Perhaps the most impressive stat is that he racked up all those strikeouts in just 95 pitches thanks to an exceptional 78% strike percentage. Sauer became the first full-season minor leaguer to strike out 17 batters in a game since Phil Pfeifer did so in July 2019 with the now defunct High-A Florida Fire Frogs. No other major or full-season minor league pitcher has struck out more than 14 in a game this year.Jasson Domínguez (A): 17 G; .323/.463/.532, 2 HR, 2 3B, 3 2B, 10 SBYankee TriviaWhich Yankee collected at least 170 RBIs in three (3) different seasons?
