#123T - Alex Trevino

What a card: Alex Trevino arrived with the Giants on April 17, 1985 in a trade with the Braves, who received catcher John Rabb in exchange.

How'd that go: Trevino batted just .217 in 57 games with the Giants. He was dealt to the Dodgers after the season as he continued to tour what was then the NL West. Between 1984-88, he played for the Reds, Braves, Giants, Dodgers and Astros -- everyone except the Padres in that division.

Backatya: Trevino was signed out of the Mexican League. Major League Baseball recently ended a brief ban on transactions with the Mexican League, enacted in 2018, by signing a new agreement in March.

Back-to-back: The flagship Braves card is more interesting. It was originally blogged on Jan. 24, 2018.

The blog wants to speak now: The Ballgames category is updated.

Trevino is currently the Spanish-language broadcaster for the Astros. I remember collecting his Reds cards when I was young.
