It looks like Trevor Story is ready to move on from the Colorado Rockies.
According to the pending free agent he has no plans to sign back with the Rocky Mountains this winter Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post.
Story became the last star player in Denver after the Rockies traded Nolan Arenado to the St. Louis Cardinals before the 2021. The 28-year-old expressed his displeasure at Arenado’s trade, and so did the rumors of his potential departure have taken off.
Jon Heyman of MLB Network he also said in March that the Rocky Mountains did not have the budget to extend the story. However, Bill Schmidt, Rockies ’interim general manager, told Saunders that Story’s new signature isn’t necessarily out of the box.
History is pitching at a slow start this season, reducing .255 / .322 / .424 with five home runs and 23 RBIs in 50 games. He is currently on the 10-day injury list with gum inflammation.
The two-time Silver Slugger will likely be highly sought after at the end of this year’s trade. If he gets into free agency, he will join a loaded free-agent shortstop class that includes Corey Seager, Marcus Semien, Carlos Correa, Javier Baez and Andrelton Simmons.
