SS - Boston Red Sox
Red Sox hitting coach Peter Fatse said Trevor Story looks fully healthy and “close to resembling what he’s been in the past."
“He’s moving well, and those are the signs you want to see at this point," Fatse said. "He’s explosive, I think his offseason program was really good and it’s the first time in three years he’s had an offseason structure like this." It was a struggle for Story at the plate in limited at-bats, but he now has a full offseason to get back on track heading into this year.
Story had a solid performance in Friday's game, going 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI.
Although his season-long batting average remains low at .200, Story has shown some power with three home runs and has been a threat on the basepaths with 10 stolen bases. Story has only logged 150 at-bats this season but is finishing the year healthy, which is the most important thing for fantasy managers.
Trevor Story is back in the lineup for the Boston Red Sox against the Chicago White Sox Friday.
Story returns after sitting out Wednesday for rest reasons, starting at shortstop and batting seventh against the White Sox for manager Alex Cora Friday.
Story had a strong performance at the plate on Friday, going 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI.
Despite his efforts, the Red Sox fell to the Dodgers by a score of 7-4. This game is a positive sign for Story, who has struggled with a low batting average since returning to the team. With his power on display and the potential for more run production, fantasy owners should keep an eye on Story moving forward.
Trevor Story had a monster game on Sunday, going 4-for-4 at the plate with three doubles, two runs scored, and two stolen bases as the Red Sox defeated the Tigers 6-3.
This performance adds to his impressive season stats, which now include a .368 batting average, four doubles, three stolen bases, and a .420 wOBA through five games played.
