 Trevor Story's early-season woes continue as he now drops below the Mendoza line. The shortstop went hitless through five at-bats on Wednesday, striking out twice along the way. He also left four players on base, though it didn't matter in the end as the Rockies won, 8-0.

Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez went 2-for-5 with a double, a run, and a steal in a 9-3 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Sun, Apr 4th
 For the second game in a row, Trevor Story notched two hits. The Rockies shortstop has been solid through a pair of games, serving as a reliable No. 3 hitter in the lineup. Colorado ultimately lost to the Dodgers, but Story provided a boost on offense and was responsible for one run as he scored on a Charlie Blackmon homer in the seventh inning.

Jose Ramirez is back with Cleveland in camp today after violating COVID-19 health and safety protocols over the weekend.

Notes 
 Story had his usual stellar year in 2020, putting up strong overall numbers and offering a rare power and speed combination. As usual, he greatly outperformed his expected statistics, but that's been the norm for Story throughout his career and isn't all that unexpected since he plays in Colorado. Story is entering his walk year, so the chances of a trade, which would diminish his value, remain a possibility. But there are few safer players in the game as of this moment, and he's a locked-in first round pick. The only question surrounding Story is whether he or Trea Turner should be the first shortstop selected in drafts.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
If you throw out the first half of his 2019 season, then Ramirez has been a dominant force in fantasy baseball for the last five years. He was as good as ever in 2020, setting career highs in slugging percentage (.607), wOBA (.415) and wRC+ (164). To the extent there are question marks about Ramirez, they're about his supporting cast, as Cleveland's lineup should be one of the weaker ones in the league now that the team has jettisoned Francisco Lindor. But a hitter's lineup is often overvalued by fantasy managers, particularly with a player like Ramirez who adds in value with stolen bases. He comes with little to no risk, and should be the first third baseman drafted, and a first round pick, in all formats.
