It appears Trevor Story is ready to move on from the Colorado Rockies.
The pending free agent has no intention of re-signing with the Rockies this winter, according to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post.
Story became the last star player in Denver after the Rockies traded Nolan Arenado to the St. Louis Cardinals before the 2021 campaign. The 28-year-old expressed his displeasure about the Arenado trade, and thus rumors of his potential departure gained steam.
MLB Network's Jon Heyman also reported in March that the Rockies did not have the budget to extend Story. However, Rockies interim general manager Bill Schmidt told Saunders that re-signing Story isn't necessarily out of the picture.
Story is off to a slow start this season, slashing .255/.322/.424 with five home runs and 23 RBI in 50 games. He's currently on the 10-day injured list with elbow inflammation.
The two-time Silver Slugger will likely be highly sought after at this year's trade deadline. If he hits free agency, he'll join a loaded free-agent shortstop class that includes Corey Seager, Marcus Semien, Carlos Correa, Javier Baez and Andrelton Simmons.
