Trevor Story says he hasn't yet discussed a contract extension with the Rockies.
Story is a free agent at season's end, which makes him a candidate to be traded midway through the year. Fellow shortstops Francisco Lindor and Carlos Correa are also free agents next offseason, which makes this a loaded free agent class.
Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports the Rockies are not actively discussing a Trevor Story trade "at this point."
Morosi adds that Story could be a trade candidate at the deadline unless he's extended by then. Expect to hear his name pop up in rumors all season long, as Story is a free agent after the 2021 campaign.
Rockies GM Jeff Bridich expects Trevor Story to begin the season with the team.
"It’s very difficult to predict what the coming months will look like," Birdich said. It's natural that the media would already be speculating about a possible Story trade as the young stud is a free agent at season's end. Following the Nolan Arenado trade, however, it's unclear what Colorado's plans are for 2021. Whether or not he's traded, it would be a surprise if Story wanted to remain with the Rockies past this year.
The Rockies and Trevor Story are currently not discussing an extension. Story will be a free agent at the end of the 2021 season, and some expect the Rockies to sign him to a long-term deal or trade him away.
The Rockies have one of the best shortstops in real-life and fantasy baseball. Trevor Story finished 2020 with 11 home runs, 41 runs, 28 RBI, and 15 steals with a .289 batting average. In 2018 and 2019, Story averaged 36 home runs, 99 runs, 96 RBI, and 25 steals with a .293 batting average. Hopefully, he stays with the Rockies or heads to a team with a better lineup around him.
Jon Morosi of MLB.com reports the Reds are "prioritizing" the addition of a starting shortstop this offseason.
Morosi notes that possible trade options are Francisco Lindor and Trevor Story. Free agent options could be Marcus Semien, Andrelton Simmons, and Didi Gregorius. Prospect Jose Garcia is likely the "future" Reds SS as of now, but the team is making it clear they want a big-league contributor for 2021.
