Drunken Yankees ‘perfect’ pitcher goes on rampage, vandalizes, mocks teammates…alcoholism this scary

The glory of the perfect game is gone. The full story of the events surrounding pitcher Domingo Hermann (31-New York Yankees)메이저사이트, who is out for the season for treatment for alcoholism, has emerged.

The Yankees placed Hermann on the restricted list on March 3, announcing that he was out for the season. The team said Herrmann had been hospitalized for treatment for alcoholism and would spend the rest of the season in treatment. The Yankees previously did this in October 2015, when pitcher CC Sabathia forfeited the postseason to enter rehab for alcoholism.

Herrmann’s case is more serious. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal the next day, Herrmann was drunk in the Yankees’ clubhouse the previous two days and acted hostile toward teammates. He went on a vandalism rampage, flipping over a clubhouse couch and smashing a TV. He even joked and taunted fellow pitcher Ron Marinaccio, who was demoted to Triple-A, as he packed up his things.

He also reportedly got into arguments with players, including Yankees manager Aaron Boone, who couldn’t handle Hermann’s outburst. Eventually, Hermann was dragged to the sauna by his teammates. The idea was to sweat out the alcohol to help him sober up. It is unclear when Hermann left the ballpark, as he was later taken to a sleeping room by security.

According to eyewitness accounts from SNY, Hermann was drunk and unable to control his emotions. But the Yankees, unable to ignore the rampage, had to take action, sending him to the restricted list the next day to get treatment for his alcoholism. The Yankees, who are in a tight postseason race for the sixth wild-card spot, have a shaky starting rotation, but Hermann is out for the season.

“Alcoholism is a very serious problem that affects many people, and we hope this step will help him for the rest of his life,” said Yankees president Brian Cashman.

This is not the first time Hermann has had a drinking problem. In September 2019, he was suspended 81 games for violating Major League Baseball’s Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy by assaulting his girlfriend while intoxicated. The incident was not related to domestic violence and is not being investigated by Major League Baseball, according to SNY. The Yankees handled the matter internally, and Herrmann was hospitalized and treated for three days.

Hermann, a right-hander from the Dominican Republic, has spent all six of his major league seasons with the Yankees, going 31-28 with a 4.41 ERA and 543 strikeouts in 112 games (89 starts and 522⅓ innings) since making his major league debut in 2017. He had his best season in 2019, when he won a career-high 18 games and posted a 4.03 ERA.

This season, he is 5-7 with a 4.56 ERA and 114 strikeouts in 20 games (108⅔ innings). On May 17, he was ejected from a game against the Toronto Blue Jays after the third inning for using a foreign substance, earning a 10-game suspension. On June 29, he threw his 24th career perfect game, striking out nine in nine innings against the Oakland Athletics. The glory didn’t last long, however, as just over a month later he was lost for the season after an alcohol-related altercation. /waw@osen.co.kr
