Biographical Information[edit]

Trevor Lane has pitched as high as AAA and for Team USA.

Lane was the Washington State Gatorade Player of the Year in high school in 2012. He was 7-1 with a 2.01 ERA and hit .444 as a senior, fanning 72 in 48 1/3 IP. He hit .279 and struck out 18 in 17 1/3 IP (3.63 ERA) as a college freshman at Campbell University. He then transferred to Lower Columbia Community College. As a junior, he moved to Illinois-Chicago, posting a 6-3, 3.92 record and making second-team All-Horizon League; he was 6th in the loop in wins. As a senior, he went 8-5 with five saves, a 1.41 ERA and 90 K in 70 1/3 IP. He led the league in ERA, K/9 and opponent average (.169), winning Horizon League Relief Pitcher of the Year. [1]

The New York Yankees took him in the tenth round of the 2016 amateur draft, two picks before Taylor Widener. He split the summer between the GCL Yankees East (1-0, Sv, 0.79 in 10 G) and Staten Island Yankees (0 R in 4 IP). In 2017, he pitched for the Charleston RiverDogs (4-2, 2 Sv, 0.79 in 24 G) and Tampa Yankees (2-2, Sv, 3.15 in 13 G). He continued to work his way up in 2018, spent with the Tampa Tarpons (1-3, 3 Sv, 3.97 in 29 G) and Trenton Thunder (1-1, 3.98 in 11 G), striking out 82 in 68 innings. He was 6th in the Yankees chain in appearances, between Raynel Espinal and Phillip Diehl.

In 2019, he had a 2.05 ERA between three stops: Tampa (1-0, 0 R in 2 IP), Trenton (5-2, Sv, 1.99 ERA, .99 WHIP in 41 IP) and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (2 R in 4 2/3 IP). Only Daniel Álvarez pitched more games by a Yankee minor leaguer; Lane had 44 to Álvarez's 47. The 2020 minor league season was wiped out by the COVID-19 pandemic. He began 2021 with the RailRiders (1-0, 4.05, 9 K in 6 2/3 IP).

He was then with Team USA for the Americas Olympic Qualifier. In his debut, he relieved veteran Edwin Jackson with one out in the 6th against the Dominican national team, a 4-3 lead and one on. He retired Juan Francisco but served up a two-run shot to Diego Goris. He got Charlie Valerio to end the inning. Despite a rough outing, he wound up with the win when the US got four runs in the bottom of the inning. Anthony Carter took over in the 7th. The US's victory put them into the Super Round. [2]
