Aaron Boone’s ‘antenna up’ on German after Britton feedback

In his camp-opening press conference on Wednesday, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said that he didn’t think Domingo German needed to address the team after returning from his 81-game domestic violence suspension that spanned two seasons.

However, after Zack Britton had some strong thoughts in his first spring presser on Thursday about German – saying, in part, “you can’t choose who your teammates are” – Boone admitted that his “antenna is up” a little bit more now.

“I would say it’s put a little strength in my antenna, as far as something that I’m looking at more closely,” Boone said of Britton’s comments. “I’m not ready to say Domingo has to address the team at this point – that’s something that has to be authentic and come from within – but it’s something I’m paying attention to, because it’s a serious issue.”

German raised eyes when, on Wednesday, he posted (and quickly deleted) a statement on Instagram that read, in part, “everything is over,” then deleted everything off his Instagram except for one post with some of Boone’s words and “I’m ready.”

Britton was then asked about that Thursday, saying, “I don’t agree with what he did” and that “he doesn’t owe me anything.”

And now, that has raised Boone’s awareness even more.

“I think Brit answered a direct question, and I’m sure there are 1000 shades of gray in there about how guys feel when serious situations come up off the field,” Boone said. “Like I said, it’s something that my antenna is up on, and we’ll continue to monitor it and try to handle it in the best way possible.”

German is competing for a spot at the back end of the Yankees’ rotation with a handful of top prospects, and Boone said that his first bullpen “looked great” and the righty is in “really good shape” – but the skipper knows that as much as knocking off 18 months of rust is important, the mental side is just as important.

“He’s been through a lot and his career has suffered for it, so of course I’m going to be sensitive to how he’s reacting and responding to things, and how it’s impacting him,” Boone said. “We want to be part of helping that situation, and paying attention to what our group is feeling.”
