Tampa — For the first time in nearly two weeks, Jose Trevino returned to the Yankees lineup on Tuesday.
The catcher was recently sidelined with a sprained right wrist he suffered on a swing on March 9.
Manager Aaron Boone initially hoped to get him back last weekend, but the Yankees waited a few more days before giving Trevino the go-ahead.
“I felt really good,” said Trevino, after pitching 5 1/2 innings for 2 in the 6-3 win over the Tigers at Steinbrenner Field.
Bonn’s original squad on Tuesday did not include Trevino because he didn’t want to put any pressure on him to play while he was in training before heading off today.
But after Trevino came through them still feeling good, he got the go-ahead to catch Luis Severino.
When asked if Trevino is clear now, Boone said, “I hope so.” Trevino is scheduled to meet again Thursday against the Cardinals.
“Today was a good day,” Boone said.
Gleyber Torres also returned to the lineup and went 1 for 3 with an RBI in his first game since returning from playing for Venezuela in the WBC.
The second baseman liked the atmosphere during the tournament as Venezuela went 4-0 in pool before losing to Team USA in a thrilling quarterfinal.
“It was the best moment of my life playing baseball [for] Torres said. “[The atmosphere was] Not even close [to anything I’ve experienced]. I don’t know what the World Championships are like in New York – I hope for the best, but the WBC is another level.
Torres also enjoyed the opportunity to play for his country amidst the conflict in Venezuela.
“The situation in the country is difficult,” said Torres. “But with these Games, we felt and saw many really good comments about how we are bringing people in Venezuela together.
“After the game we lost, sure it was sad, but we were talking about how we were affecting our country. A lot of struggles, but in those games, the country was with us. I think that’s the beautiful thing about baseball.”
The Yankees held a roster-building meeting on Tuesday as discussions began to heat up over which 26 players should bring up North for Opening Day.
The bigger question looming is whether Oswald Peraza or Anthony Volpe will win the shortstop job, though Bunn said no decisions have been made.
“It was good,” Boone said, “a lot of people talked.” “We had player development people, major league coaching staff, some support staff, the front office. It was nice to hear different voices from different perspectives on the things they see and kind of put your cards on the table a little bit. It was a good first step.” In helping us decide.”
