Rockies Trevor Story Needs Thumb Surgery

The Colorado Rockies were planning on starting Jose Reyes at SS on opening day until he was suspended by the MLB.  That cleared the path for Trevor Story to start his career as the next Troy Tulowitzki.

Story got off to a historic start, with 7 home runs in six games and continued to rake all year long.

He was well on his way to earning National League Rookie of the Year honors, beating out Dodgers SS Corey Seager and Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz, who was also just placed on the DL.

Story hit .272 with 27 home runs, 21 doubles and 72 RBI.

He hit his 25th HR just last week, setting a NL rookie record for shortstops.

He ranked 4th amongst fantasy baseball hitters last month.

The Rockies will now have to use a mix of Daniel Descalso, Cristhian Adames and Rafael Ynoa to fill the void at SS. For fantasy baseball owners, you might want to look at Orlando Arcia - just called up by the Brewers. Colorado Rockies Trevor Story Injury Fantasy Baseball
