New York Yankees pitcher Domingo German was involved in a car accident on Thursday in the Dominican Republic but escaped without injury, manager Aaron Boone told reporters on Friday, according to Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record.
Spanish-language outlet El Diario Nuevo reported that the vehicle rolled over, and two of the four people in the car were taken to hospital with injuries, according to Dawn Klemish of MLB.com.
Boone said that German was a passenger in the car, sitting in the back seat on the driver's side. The pitcher later reported to the Yankees' Dominican complex, where he was examined by doctors and deemed to be OK.
The 27-year-old right-hander did not report to spring training because he is currently serving an 81-game suspension for violating MLB's joint domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse policy.
German's suspension, which was handed down on Jan. 2, is retroactive to Sept. 19 of last year. He will miss the first 63 games of 2020.
