Report: Rockies Story sidelined for season with thumb injury


Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story will likely miss the rest of the MLB season as reports indicate the rookie star will undergo surgery on his left thumb.

Denver 7 Broncos Insider Troy Renck reported via Twitter Tuesday afternoon that Story, who tore a ligament in his left thumb sliding into second base during a game Saturday against the Mets in New York, will go under the knife and likely won’t return to action this season.


Story, who was amid a historic first season in the majors, had been in the running for National League Rookie of the Year, batting .272 with 72 RBIs and a NL-leading 27 home runs.

The Rockies announced they placed Story on the 15-day disabled list earlier Tuesday afternoon, recalling infielder Rafael Ynoa from Triple-A Albuquerque.
