Rockies shortstop Trevor Story went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer against the Angels on Wednesday. He also drew a walk in the contest but did strike out three times. Colorado ultimately fell to Los Angeles by a score of 8-7.
This was potentially the final homer of Story's tenure with the Rockies as the 27-year-old has been a subject of aggressive trade talks. He's having a down year, slashing .240/.313/.429 with 38 RBI, 42 walks, and 90 strikeouts. On a more positive note, he has amassed 13 home runs and 17 stolen bases.
The trade market for Trevor Story has reportedly heated up and become more active in the last 24 hours, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network.
The New York Yankees and San Francisco Giants are among the interest clubs in Story. He is hitting .240 at the plate this season with 12 home runs in what has been a down season for his standards, but it is clear teams are still very interested in his services despite him being a rental. The trade deadline on Friday is quickly approaching.
Jon Heyman of the MLB Network reports that the New York Yankees have made an offer for Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story.
Story, who will be a free agent after the season, has been rumored to be dealt by Colorado before the MLB deadline of July 31. “No evidence of any traction there at this point, ” Heyman added. There reportedly have been multiple teams who have discussed a potential deal with the Rockies shortstop, including the Milwaukee Brewers. Story will be an offensive force wherever he lands after slashing .240/.312/.421 with 12 home runs, 46 RBI, 45 runs scored, and 17 stolen bases over 86 games in 2021. Stay tuned.
Rockies shortstop Trevor Story went 2-for-5 with a single and solo homer against the Dodgers on Friday night. Colorado ultimately won by a score of 9-6 in extra innings.
Story is now hitting .245 this season. On a more positive note, he has contributed 12 home runs. The budding star is drawing trade interest ahead of the upcoming deadline and is a must-watch name as negotiations ensue.
Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story is drawing interest from the New York Yankees, among other teams, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.
Feinsand noted that the Yankees have "checked in with the Rockies on Story," according to his source. The impending free agent is sure to draw a ton of interest as the MLB trade deadline is just around the corner. Feinsand also said that if the Yankees did indeed acquire Story then it would make sense for Gleyber Torres to shift over to second base and have DJ LeMahieu cover first base so that Story could remain at his natural shortstop position.
