New York Yankeesright-hander Domingo German dominated the Boston Red Sox on June 10; allowing a single run in six innings and earning the win.

The two starts that came immediately after that effort, however, were as bad as you can probably imagine.

The controversial Yankees pitcher allowed seven runs in just two innings against Boston a week ago, and eight in 3.1 frames against the Seattle Mariners on Thursday.

He completely lost it, and he doesn t know how or why.

Bryan Hoch, who covers the Yankees every step for, talked to him and tweeted some of his thoughts.

Domingo German has allowed 17 runs (15 earned) in his last two starts. It s hard to figure out where the issue is; if it s mechanical, the release point, are they adjusting or seeing the pitch well? You ve got to keep working. It doesn t stop. You ve got to find what kind of solution you can apply and put it to work, Hoch tweeted, with German s remarks.

German himself doesn t have a firm clue of what s happening.

It could be that he is tipping his pitches, or it could be a mechanical flaw.

It could also be that he is not the same pitcher since being slapped with a 10-game suspension for using foreign substances on the ball in late May.

The team, specifically the pitching coaches, will need to watch video and try to identify if there is an issue.

So far, there are no reports of health problems.

For the season as a whole, German has a 5.10 ERA in 72.1 innings.

He will need to be much better to keep a rotation spot when Carlos Rodon returns.
