Rockies promote shortstop prospect Trevor Story to Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:58 am ET) The Rockies have promoted shortstop Trevor Story to Triple-A Alburquerque. Story was drafted in the first round (45th overall) by the Rockies in 2011. In 69 games with Double-A New Britain this season, Story posted a .281/.373/.523 line with 10 home runs, 20 doubles and 40 RBI. He also stole 15 bases.

"He's earned the opportunity for a greater challenge," Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said, per The Denver Post.

Story has spent much of his professional career at shortstop, but he has also seen some time at third base and second base. But the Rockies still view him as a shortstop when all is said and done.

"Some of that remains to be seen. You don't truly know until you see the guy do it at this level," Bridich said. "But we drafted him as a shortstop and he's continued to play shortstop in the minor leagues. ... At this point, we absolutely believe he can be a major-league shortstop."
