COLORADO ROCKIES TREVOR STORY: Last days with the organization?
DENVER (KDVR) – Trevor Story started his career with the Colorado Rockies with a bang, hitting home runs in his first six games. Six seasons later, it looks like he’s just about to leave, through no fault of his own, with a whimper.
âWe did our best and did everything we could to bring a championship to this city,â Story said on the eve of what could be his last game in Denver. âI know the fans deserve this. This city deserves it. I tried to play a big part in it, and we just couldn’t do it.
Story is in the final year of a two-year, $ 27.5 million contract and is expected to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
âTen years and more in this organization means a lot to play these last few games,â Story said as the Rockies end the season against the Washington Nationals and Arizona Diamondbacks. “You just don’t know what’s coming (next).”
Story said he’s excited about free will, even if it means leaving the only baseball house he’s known. Acting Rockies general manager Bill Schmidt retained the third baseman on the trade deadline this season.
“We are not a farming system for others,” Schmidt said as the franchise decides which direction to take during the offseason. If the Rockies don’t re-sign Story, they’ll be rewarded with a compensatory pick in the 2022 Major League Baseball Draft.
So if this is the end of the Story chapter with the Rockies, how do you remember the double All Star?
âJust a guy. Just like a simple guy who played hard and gave his all every night and got ready, âStory said.
