“I Couldn’t Really Take It No More,” Yankees Key Catcher Faces Season-Ending Injury As He Heads For Surgery!

It has been a kind of season where nothing is going the Yankees’ way. From injuries to inconsistent gameplay to form slumps, each aspect has collectively contributed to the team’s humiliating fall this year. While the Bronx Bombers are trying their best to recover, injuries are just not willing to come off their back anytime soon.

Last week, Yankees veteran third baseman Josh Donaldson faced a season-ending injury while running out a ground ball against the Rockies. He pulled up his calf muscle which has been diagnosed as a Grade 3 tear. Donaldson was quick to judge that he might not return this season, which could possibly end his stint in New York. Meanwhile, another key player has been ruled out due to a grievous injury.

In a devastating blow to the New York Yankees, their key catcher Jose Trevino has faced a season-ending injury. As per the team’s official word, the catcher has been dealing with a wrist injury since the start of the season. However, he tolerated the pain all this while just playing for the team. But it has now reached a point where the pain is getting unbearable. Hence, Trevino will now head for surgery, which will seemingly end his 2023 season prematurely. Meanwhile, the catcher felt absolutely gutted over the call. He said that while the doctors cleared him to play, he couldn’t really bring anything substantial to the table with lingering pain.

However, Jose did say that it was he who pushed to the limits and ignored the injury early on continue playing. But since the Yankees catcher hit an offensive slump, he called it quits for good. He has hit .210 with four home runs, 15 RBIs, and .570 OPS. Jose Trevino lastly added that “there’s nothing more than I want to do than go out there and play, but at this point, I’m not helping anybody.” Meanwhile, the Bronx Bombers have called up Ben Rortvedt from Triple-A as a replacement. He will split time with Kyle Higashioka in the near future. With the trade deadline approaching, the Yanks will explore a few options to add to the catching depth.
