Trevor Story It is seen as one of the top commercial candidates in baseball. And if the Rockies do not move him before the July 30 trade deadline, they are reportedly unable to trust he will return as a free agent in 2022 and beyond, sources told Patrick. Saunders of The Denver Post
The two sides have yet to discuss an extension for February 23, according to Story, although it is unknown whether talks took place during March or after the opening date. Talk that will lead to a long-term deal worth more than $200 million, a fact the Rockies still can’t talk about. Even at the end of February of the year, the story’s walk could be seen as Sign that the team doesn̵7;t count on the surrounding matters.
Frankly, it would have been more surprising if Story had been designed in a return to Denver. Considering the Rockies are struggling through another losing season and appear closer to rebuilding than a return to controversy, interim GM Bill Schmidt told Saunders and other journalists. that the team has shown better improvements on the field, and it feels like the Rockies are only a few clutches away from a better record than the current 24-36 score, even though Colorado is a few games close to the wildcard slots that Two of the NL’s are more than their current game deficit, 10.5 games, but that still shouldn’t change the equation about how the Rockies seem to be overdue to shuffle their roster.
Regardless, it’s clear the Rockies haven’t been thrown in the towel in the 2021 season, as Schmidt said it is.not necessary” in the case of Story or Jon Gray will be managed Trade discussions are not yet common. As Schmidt said,Some clubs have reached out and show (interested) if we get to that point. But there’s really nothing to say… really nothing to follow.”
Sanders doesn’t feel the team will move Story before the All-Star Game in Denver, so it likely takes more than a month for commercial speculation to begin in earnest on Story, Gray or other Rockies. Ri also had to take the first steps back on the pitch. Because the shortstop has been on the injured list for 10 days since May 28 (retrospective) due to inflamed right elbow, Colorado manager Bud Black told MLB.com’s Thomas Harding and other journalists that Story expected. Ready to kick off the Rockies vs. Marlins series on Tuesday.
When and if the Story commercial market recovers, both MLB Network’s Jon Morosi and USA Today’s Bob Nightengale expect athletics to play a part. Oakland leads AL West despite receiving player compensation from Elvis Andrus at the shortstop, as Andrus hit only .214/.259/.273 to 201, the appearance of the plate Most of that fight was still in the first month of the season as Andrus scored .295/.337/.385. More respected than 83 PA from 7 May to 5 June, but there is little doubt that Story will be much bigger. UPGRADE FOR A TEAM INSPIRED SEASON
Salary will be an important factor in the deal. Story/Oakland that may occur As shortstop owes $17.5MM for the 2021 season and there will still be around 5.92MM salary remaining at the end of July. While it may not seem like a big deal for an All-Star shortstop, it remains to be seen what budget-conscious A’s have in store. Or if they feel that pushing Story for a World Series is worth both of them. Salary and Opportunity A will send to Colorado in the trade.
