September 19 2019 8:26 PM

New York Yankees pitcher Domingo German has been placed on administrative leave under MLB's domestic violence policy, the league announced Thursday.

According to the release, the league is still is investigating an alleged incident, although details were not made public. The initial leave period can last up to seven days, but can be extended. 

The Yankees released a statement shortly after MLB's announcement saying they will co-operate fully.

"We fully support all measures being undertaken by the Commissioner’s Office pursuant to the Policy on Domestic Violence," the Yankees said. "We support this policy which reinforces that domestic violence has no place in our society and cannot be tolerated. We have followed the lead of Major League Baseball and will continue to provide our complete cooperation throughout the investigative process. 

"We reserve any further comment until the investigation reaches its conclusion. All questions pertaining to this matter should be directed to the Office of the Commissioner."

German, 27, has been instrumental in the Yankees' rotation as they have battled a myriad of injuries this season. The right-hander is 18-4 on the year with a 4.03 ERA in 27 appearances (24 starts).

In a corresponding move, the Yankees announced they have signed right-hander Michael King to a major league deal and added him to their roster. King, 24, was the Yankees' minor league pitcher of the year in 2018 but spent most of this season rehabbing a spring training elbow injury.
