At the time, the move was thought to be nothing more than a depth move.
Soon after the trade, Trevino began to show just how wrong those predictions were, earning an All-Star nod.
At the end of the season, Trevino was awarded with a Gold Glove for American League catchers.
Just over a week later, Trevino was presented with the Platinum Glove, which is given to the best of the Gold Glove Award winners.
It was certainly a year full of accomplishments for Trevino, and on Twitter, he made sure to thank everyone involved from the coaching staff to teammates and the training staff.
What a night last night! None of this would be possible without the help from my teammates, coaching staff and training staff. Honored to have been in the same room with so many legends. Back to work we go @Yankees pic.twitter.com/ZQvc82nKzS

Trevino quickly burst onto the scene and snatched the Yankees’ starting catcher job.
But with Rortvedt on the injured list, a spot opened up for Trevino, and Trevino capitalized on his opportunity.
Trevino made just six errors behind the plate.
He also registered 828 putouts, caught 15 runners stealing, and posted a .993 fielding percentage.
The 29-year-old was drafted out of Oral Roberts University in the sixth round in 2014.
Eight years later, Trevino now finds himself with an All-Star nod, a Gold Glove Award, and a Platinum Glove Award.
