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.

 Trea Turner led the Nationals with three hits and stole his first bag of 2021. He went 3-for-4 with one strikeout and one steal.
Corbin Young
Sun, Apr 11th
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.

Notes 
 Turner was the best version of himself in 2020, slashing his strikeout rate to below 14% and setting career bests in batting average, OBP, slugging percentage, wOBA, and wRC+. Above all, Turner locks down two incredibly scarce categories for fantasy managers, stolen bases and batting average, while offering production in the other three hitting categories. Still just entering his age-28 season, Turner is in the prime of his career, and should continue to put up stellar numbers. He's a top-eight pick in rotisserie leagues.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
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
 2020 was the culmination of everything we've ever wanted out of Turner. Both the barrel rate and the line-drive rate jumped en route to a .335 batting average. Turner famously went without a stolen base for several weeks before finishing tied for fourth in the majors with 12 for the season. Perhaps 2020 was a two-month hot streak with the bat, but Turner's stolen base upside combined with even 80% of last year's gains make him an essential part of any roto strategy come draft day.
