Story went 1-for-3 with a double, a stolen base and a run scored Wednesday against the Angels. All of Story's damage came during his first trip to the plate, as he doubled and stole third before coming in to score on a sacrifice fly from Raimel Tapia. The shortstop's power-speed combo has been on display early in camp; he's 5-for-15 with a pair of extra-base hits and three stolen bases through seven Cactus League games.
Story (elbow) will return to the lineup Monday against the Royals, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Story was hit by a pitch Saturday and skipped Sunday's game, but the injury wasn't a serious one. The single missed day should have no bearing on the shortstop's readiness for Opening Day.
Story (elbow) is fine after getting hit by a pitch Saturday and expects to return to the lineup within a day or two, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Story exited Saturday's game with an elbow contusion and isn't in the lineup Sunday, but starters don't necessarily play every day early in camp, so that's not particularly a sign of concern. Barring setbacks, he'll have more than enough time to be ready by Opening Day.
Story left Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with a right elbow contusion after being hit by a pitch. Story's elbow has been through a lot recently, as elbow issues in mid-September appeared to threaten Tommy John surgery at one point. Saturday's injury is unlikely to linger and won't affect his readiness for Opening Day unless tests reveal an issue worse than a bruise.
Story's elbow is feeling "great," Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. Story experienced elbow issues in mid-September, which at one point appeared to be bad enough that Tommy John surgery was on the table, but he wound up missing just six games. He took time off after the season to let the elbow rest but has since resumed his normal routine without problems.
