Jose Trevino, Gold Glove Winner: Rawlings has named their Gold Glove winners at each position for the minor leagues today, and High Desert's Jose Trevino has been named the Gold Glove winner at catcher.
That is quite the honor for the 23 year old Trevino, who was drafted by the Rangers out of Oral Roberts in the 6th round of the 2014 draft. Trevino played both catcher and third base in college and in his first year as a pro, but has been almost exclusively a catcher since the start of the 2015 season. Trevino has gotten great reviews for his leadership, game calling and defensive work, and he threw out 47 of 98 baserunners trying to steal on him this year.
This award will join a pair of championship rings in Trevino's trophy case -- he was the starting catcher for both the 2015 Sally League champion Hickory Crawdads, and the 2016 Cal League champion High Desert Mavericks. Trevino should be in Frisco next season, where he'll be looking for his third straight season winning a league championship, and looking to continue the work he's done that has put him on the map as a possible future major league catcher.
