Even though the New York Yankees haven’t started yet, they are struggling with injuries.
The team’s main catcher, Jose Trevino, has been unable to play in an exhibition game since the 10th (Korean time) due to a right wrist sprain.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone explained in an interview with ‘MLB.com’ on the 15th (Korean time), “Trevino has not yet been able to properly train due to an injury.”
Trevino joined the Yankees in a trade last season and has had his best year yet. He had a batting average of 0.248, 11 homers, 43 RBIs and an OPS of 0.671, and won his first All-Star and Gold Glove awards. In addition, he was recognized for his defensive skills by winning the Platinum Glove awarded to the best defender.더블유 토토
However, he was hampered by an injury before the season started. Boone said, “Trevino is expected to play later this week, and he may be given a shot for that. We expect him to be ready for the opening day.”
The opinion of the local media is slightly different from Boone’s. ‘MLB Trade Rumors’ said, “There is a good chance that he will not be able to play in the opening game. Backup catcher Kyle Higashioka will be playing in a lot of games early in the season.”
Meanwhile, the Yankees have lost too many players to injuries before the season even begins. Starting pitchers Carlos Rodon and Frankie Montas, relievers Lou Trivino and Tommy Cainley are unlikely to make it to Opening Day, and Harrison Bader will most likely not be ready. Here, as the possibility of departure even to the main catcher Trevino arose, there was an emergency.
