Trevino, Higgy, and the subtle intricacies of pitch-calling

Trevino, Higgy, and the subtle intricacies of pitch-calling

What’s causing the statistical differences around the rotation with Trevino and Higashioka behind the plate? After a dominant outing against the Mariners by Yankees ace Gerrit Cole, the most prominent storyline was surrounding not just the big right-hander, but the man behind the plate, Jose Trevino. After a 2021 season where Cole essentially insisted on Kyle Higashioka throwing the signs down instead of Gary Sánchez, their results together in 2022 have been subpar, and the most recent outing aids that narrative. On August 3rd against the Mariners, Cole gave up a home run on...

Albert Abreu can help the Yankees down the stretch

Albert Abreu can help the Yankees down the stretch

Photo by Adam Hunger/ Since coming back after being traded away, Albert Abreu has been generally solid. Will that continue? Albert Abreu is a familiar face in the Yankees organization. He has been in and around the team for years, ever since coming over in the Brian McCann trade post-2016. Unfortunately, he was never quite able to put it all together with the Yankees before he was traded to the Texas Rangers in the deal that brought Jose Trevino to the Yankees. He didn’t stick with the Rangers, and they eventually dealt him to the Kansas City Royals. The Royals then...

Yankees At-Bat of the Week: Jose Trevino (8/1)

Yankees At-Bat of the Week: Jose Trevino (8/1)

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Trevino capped off a great night with a homer to center field. Jose Trevino has quickly become one of my favorite players on the Yankees. As a former catcher and lover of catcher’s defense, I am certainly biased towards loving the Trevino player build. But what makes the affinity grow stronger are these games. Two home runs and so many smiles! When Trevino goes yard, Yankee Stadium erupts. It’s very easy to root for him. If you remember, when Gary Sánchez was flourishing, this fanbase loved him as much as any other homegrown player....

We’re keeping it straightforward on the site today. Dan has the weekly minor league review and Josh has the...

Yankees 7, Mariners 2: Trevino homers twice as Bombers slug their way to win

Yankees 7, Mariners 2: Trevino homers twice as Bombers slug their way to win

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports In total, the Yankees hit four home runs as they kicked off a new series with a victory. It was a big day for the Yankees off the field, as they made a pair of trades, bolstering their pitching with the additions of Frankie Montas, Lou Trivino, and Scott Effross. However despite those (and possibly other) trades going down, there was still baseball to be played on the field. Just as the front office took care of business on the transaction wire, so did the team on the field. Led by Jose Trevino with two, the Yankees hit four home runs on the...

That’s baseball, Suzyn: On baseball’s innate unpredictability

That’s baseball, Suzyn: On baseball’s innate unpredictability

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports For a game steeped in numbers like no other, baseball still remains, by and large, an unpredictable game. That’s what makes it so special. If you had pulled me aside this time last year and told me that all three of Nestor Cortes, Clay Holmes, and Jose Trevino would be representing the New York Yankees, the best team in the league, at the All-Star Game, I probably would have laughed in your face. In that scenario, the “best team in the league” label likely would’ve required a bit of a suspension of disbelief on my part as last...

NYY News: An All-Star is Born

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Trevino a breakout star; Judge/Jones comparisons; Hall of Fame getting harder to crack; sizing up the AL New York Post | David Scott: Jose Trevino has become a star among Yankee fans with his performance and personality this season, but after being mic’d up during Tuesday’s All-Star Game, he may have broken out into the baseball world at large. My favorite moment was the anecdote about asking Shohei Ohtani what protein he takes, but the pitch selection conversation with Nestor Cortes makes for great viewing as well.

Yankees potential trade target: Sean Murphy

Yankees potential trade target: Sean Murphy

Photo by Ron Jenkins/ The Yankees would have one of the best backstop tandems in baseball if they trade for the Oakland catcher. Thanks to the All-Star performance of Jose Trevino, the Yankees’ catchers have been among the league’s best. Their 2.8 fWAR from their backstops is tied with the Dodgers for fourth in baseball, behind only the Blue Jays, Braves, and Brewers. Although their offensive performance has been rather middling with an 84 wRC+, they have been absolutely elite on defense. To wit, their 14 Defensive Runs Saved is almost twice that of the second-place...
