Trevino was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.
Trevino got into his first three major-league games last year but spent the bulk of the campaign with Double-A Frisco. He earns a promotion despite hitting .234/.284/.332 in 46 games at that level.
Adam Moore is slated to swap in for starting catcher Jett Bandy midway through the contest, but Trevino will be on hand as a third option if needed. Trevino's availability in any capacity indicates he's moved past the shoulder issue that limited him early in camp. He has already appeared in five Cactus League games, going hitless in eight at-bats.
Trevino (shoulder) will start spring training "a little behind" other catchers, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Trevino, who underwent shoulder surgery last July, is expected to need at least another season in the minors. "Ideally, he gets time to develop," said general manager Jon Daniels. That likely means Trevino will open the year at Triple-A Nasvhille of the Pacific Coast League.
Trevino is out of the sling on his left shoulder following surgery, and he's planning to resume baseball activities in December, Jeff Wilson of the Star-Telegram reports.
The 25-year-old mustered a .234/.284/.332 line in 201 plate appearances with Double-A Frisco in 2018. Trevino will probably get a decent look with the big club in spring training but likely needs at least another season to even sniff consideration for a significant major-league role.
Trevino has been placed on the disabled list at Double-A Frisco with a left shoulder (non-throwing) impingement, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Trevino had a brief stay in the majors earlier this month before getting sent back down to Frisco. The Rangers decided they could get by with Isiah Kiner-Falefa as the backup catcher, so Trevino was sent back down to Frisco after making his MLB debut. He played just one game with the RoughRiders before ending up on the minor-league disabled list.
