OAKLAND, Calif. — Jose Trevino was faraway from the Yankees’ 3-2 win over the A’s on Friday night after being drilled on the precise big toe by a pitch in the highest of the eighth.

Trevino initially stayed in the sport and caught the underside of the eighth, but was replaced by Kyle Higashioka within the ninth.
Aaron Boone said X-rays were negative.
“That’s a giant exhale,’’ Boone said. “Hopefully it’s something we will take care of. We’ll see how he’s [Saturday]. You fear the worst whenever you see it, but hope for one of the best”
If Trevino is unavailable, shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa could possibly be used as an emergency catcher.
