Assault on girlfriend → punishment for foreign substances → alcohol poisoning… Fall of ML Perfect Pitcher, season out due to inpatient treatment

American sports channel ESPN quoted the announcement of the New York Yankees team on the 3rd (Korean time) and reported, “Yankees right-hander Domingo Hermann voluntarily entered hospital for treatment due to alcohol abuse.”

Hermann ended the season prematurely on the Yankees restricted list. He plans to focus on hospital treatment for the rest of the season. Yankees club said, “Hermann must focus on restoring his health and happiness. The club respects the privacy of Herman, who has started treatment at the hospital.”

“There will be no more pitching from Hermann this season,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. “Unfortunately, alcoholism is a very serious issue that affects too many people. I hope this action will help him for the rest of his life. I hope the problem will be resolved through hospital treatment.”

Born in the Dominican Republic, Hermann made his major league debut in a Yankees uniform in 2017 and was reborn as an 18-win pitcher in 2019. But his glory was only then. He was given an 81-game suspension in 2020 for assaulting his girlfriend, and a 10-game suspension for using a foreign object against the Toronto Blue Jays in May of this year.카지노사이트

Meanwhile, on June 29, Hermann achieved a record of a perfect game with 9 strikeouts and 9 strikeouts in an away game against the Oakland Athletics. He was the 24th perfect pitcher in history, 11 years after Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners in August 2012. He was also the first perfect pitcher for the Yankees, 14 years after Don Larson in 1956, David Wells in 1998, and David Cohn in 1999.

After the perfect game, Hermann steadily digested the starting rotation and left 2 losses and an ERA of 4.61 without winning 5 games during the month of July. On the first day of August, he also started against the Tampa Bay Rays and pitched 5 scoreless innings, but suffered an unexpected season out due to alcoholism.

It is the second time in history that a Yankees starting pitcher has been treated for alcoholism mid-season. CC Sabathia left the team to enter a rehab center ahead of the American League Wild Card game against the Houston Astros in October 2015.
