40-man: Jose Trevino.

A continuing look at the Rangers 40-man roster.

Age: 28
Right-Handed Hitting Catcher 

The native Texan Trevino was picked by Texas in the sixth-round of the 2014 draft. 

Working his way up the system, he showed that he was more than capable of handing the defensive responsibly that comes with being a catcher. 

The question was whether he could hit. He’s proven he could hold his own at that.

In parts of three big-league seasons, Trevino has hit a respectable .255. He certainly isn’t going to make anyone forget about Pudge Rodriguez but Trevino had the fortune of being on a Rangers roster that also had Jeff Mathis. And any hitter looks like Ted Williams compared to Mathis. 

The likeable Rangers catcher was off to a solid start in 2020 when he sprained his left wrist in early September and was lost for the rest of the season.

He goes into 2021 as the Rangers primary catcher but is just renting the spot until Sam Huff is ready to claim his rightful ownership of it.
