Yankees’ Jose Trevino now thriving after ‘he got shafted’ with Rangers

Jose Trevino will not go there when asked about his old employer. The Yankees catcher, in the midst of a breakout season that’s starting to garner All-Star buzz, has no need to be anything but diplomatic and soft-spoken.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa, his teammate in the minors, with the Rangers and now with the Yankees, though, will.

“He got shafted, pretty much, in Texas,” Kiner-Falefa told The Post on Friday ahead of the Yankees’ game against the Astros. “For him to have this opportunity to do what he’s doing now, there was never a doubt for me thinking that he was gonna do this. It was more so questioning Texas’ decisions and what they were thinking, the whole process of signing those guys and bringing those guys in [ahead of Trevino] didn’t make any sense to me.”

Other than Trevino himself, Kiner-Falefa might be one of the only people who can say he saw this season coming from the 29-year-old. Trevino has burst onto the scene in New York, posting a .282/.336/.470 slash line, leading all catchers in Baseball Prospectus’ pitch framing metric and ranking second among AL catchers (min: 100 plate appearances) in both fWAR and wRC+.
