The Yankees will recall No. 7 prospect RHP Domingo Acevedo from Double-A ahead of their game Saturday against the Mets.
Acevedo, 24, has a 2.84 ERA over 11 appearances for Trenton this season (8 starts). In 50.1 IP, Acevedo has 40 strikeouts/8 walks and a 1.13 WHP. He hasn't pitched in Triple-A this season, though he did in 2017, where he a 4.38 ERA across 12.1 IP.
After Friday's loss to the Mets, the Yankees optioned RHP Domingo German to Triple-A, who will be replaced in the rotation by RHP Luis Cessa, with Acevedo working out of the bullpen.
Acevedo's fastball sits in the mid-high 90s, which could allow him to touch triple digits as he did a few years ago. The 6'7" righty also throws a high 80s changeup and mid 80s slider.
