Story went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Phillies. Story connected on his 35th homer of the season in the second inning with a solo shot off Jake Arrieta, and he's now connected on home runs in back-to-back games. Story has produced elite offensive numbers in 2018, with a .291/.346/.562 slash line with 42 doubles, six triples, 105 RBI, 86 runs and 26 steals.
Story went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, a triple and three runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Phillies. Story did his part in the 14-0 win, going deep in the fifth inning for his 34th home run to pull into a tie for second place in the National League behind Matt Carpenter (36). The 25-year-old also ranks in the top five in the NL with 104 RBI and sports an impressive .290 batting average. Now over the elbow issue that cost him five games over the past week, Story figures to be in the lineup the rest of the way to help Colorado secure a playoff spot.
Story (elbow) went 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a run Monday in the Rockies' 10-1 win over the Phillies. After missing the previous five games with a sore right elbow, Story showed no signs of the injury affecting him in his return to the lineup. According to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, both of Story's two-baggers had exit velocities exceeding 108 miles per hour. His second double of the night gave him 80 extra-base hits on the season, making him only the fourth National League shortstop in history to reach that benchmark. With his health seemingly not much of a question mark any longer, Story should make for an elite fantasy option over the final week of the season with six more games on tap at Coors Field and the Rockies incentivized to keep all their regulars in the lineup with a playoff spot still at stake.
Story (elbow) will start at shortstop Monday against the Phillies, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. Story has been cleared to rejoin the lineup after missing the last six games with an elbow injury. The shortstop, who is hitting .288/.343/.550 with 33 homers and 26 stolen bases through 149 games this season, figures to immediately slot back into the heart of the team's lineup. He'll face right-hander Zach Eflin in his first game back.
Story (elbow) remains out of the lineup Sunday against Arizona, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Story will miss his fifth straight start after hurting his elbow Monday. He avoided a significant injury and appeared to be in contention for a start Sunday but will wind up sitting for at least one more game. Garrett Hampson will start at shortstop again in his absence.
