Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story is "encouraged" by the progress of his thumb and aims to return from the 10-day IL when first eligible. He was placed on the shelf on June 20 after jamming his thumb on a slide into second base and was initially expected to miss several weeks. Players are known to give inspiring injury news, and owners shouldn't get their hopes up until the team addresses his injury formally. The 26-year-old was in the midst of another productive season hitting .294 with 17 homers, 48 RBI, and 12 steals proving to be one of the top players at his position. Brendan Rodgers and recent call-up Garrett Hampson will see more work in Story's absence.
Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story (thumb) landed on the injured list on Thursday with a sprained right thumb, but extensive tests showed no structural damage and he's expected to avoid surgery. However, this is an injury that could still cause him to miss at least two weeks. It's much better than when Story suffered torn ligaments in his left thumb in 2016 in his rookie season. He's currently hitting .294 with 17 home runs and has been one of the most productive fantasy shortstops in baseball. Keep him stashed everywhere. Brendan Rodgers, 22, should see regular playing time with Story out and is worth another pickup in deep mixed leagues. He hit .246 with no homers in 21 games after making his big league debut on May 17, but his upside is undeniable.
Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a right hand sprain. The Rockies called up infielder Brendan Rodgers to take his roster spot. Story is obviously a stash in all formats while on the IL. Rodgers will be taking his second MLB stint this year after he was up from May 17 to June 15. Rodgers only got 70 plate appearances in that near-month and managed just a .246/.300/.277 slash line. He's not likely to play much this time, either, making him waiver fodder in redraft leagues, even in NL-only leagues. Managers in deep keeper formats may have a spot for MLB.com's sixth-rated prospect, however.
