Yes, Aaron Boone was absolutely serious.

In a video posted by the Yankees on Sunday, the manager told an emotional – and surprised – Jose Trevino that he had been selected to his first All-Star game.
The message surprised the first-year Yankees catcher, who was having a breakout season after being acquired in an offseason trade.

He also needed a second confirmation.

Just like that, Trevino’s plans changed in a hurry.

Trevino will attend fellow Yankees Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Gerrit Cole, Nestor Cortes, and Clay Holmes for the 2022 MLB All-Star Game on July 19 at Dodger Stadium.

The 29-year-old was acquired by the Yankees in a trade with the Rangers that sent Albert Abreu (who has since been DFA’d and brought back to the Bronx) and Robby Ahlstrom to Texas.

Trevino was expected to share time at catcher with Kyle Higashioka after the Yankees traded Gary Sanchez to the Twins. He’s hitting.255/.303/.438 and has a.741 OPS. Perhaps even more importantly, his defensive work behind plate and rapport with the Yankees’ pitching staff have received high praise from teammates.

Trevino previously played four seasons with the Rangers, where he hit .245/.270/.364.
