The Fielding Bible Award uses statistical analysts to recognize the best fielder in each league at each position.
John Dewan and Baseball Info Solutions conduct the annual selection process.
Traditionally, the Fielding Bible awards are announced before the Gold Gloves, a more conventional recognition for defensive players.
Trevino Was A Defensive Star For The Yankees In 2022
It’s the first time Trevino is recognized with the award, and it was very much deserved.
Trevino, in his first season with the Yankees, cemented his place as MLB’s premier pitch framer.
Nobody was as good as him in the art of stealing strikes for his pitchers.
He had 19.1 framing runs, leading the league, and also 21 Defensive Runs Saved (DRS) behind the plate.
He was also great at calling games, communicating with his pitchers, throwing out runners at the bases, and blocking pitches in the dirt.
Overall, he was an asset for the Yanks with a mitt on his hand.
