Trevor Story has been the focus of Boston Red Sox fans ever since he signed a contract with them.
Former Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story recently signed a six-year, $140 million contract with the Boston Red Sox. Story publicly expressed his own excitement to join the Red Sox along with his appreciation for the Rockies through a series of tweets.
Story seems to be ready to make Boston his new home and start his journey with the Red Sox. The Red Sox will mark his first time with a new team in the MLB, and he will also be switching from shortstop to second base.
He will be facing many new beginnings with the Red Sox, but he has already proved in his short career to be a talented and versatile player.
What will Trevor Story bring to the Red Sox?
Story has proven to be a talented batter and will be a strong addition to the Red Sox. In 745 career games, he has hit 158 home runs and 450 RBIs. He will likely be one of the strongest batters on the team. Current members of the Red Sox think highly of his ability as well, and are thrilled to have Story join the team.
“He’s a big bat. We know what he does defensively already. I think that bat would play really well at Fenway just with that short porch over there. It would be nice if we could get an addition like that after some of the big names that we lost to free agency or traded away. That’s a big boy. That’s a big bat right there. That’s an impact player.” -Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts, via The Denver Post
What were Trevor Story’s closing words to the Rockies?
Story had some heartfelt words for the Rockies. He’s grateful to embark on his new journey with the Red Sox, but leaving the Rockies is a bittersweet moment as he has plenty of friends within the organization.
Will Story prove the Coors Field effect wrong?
