Story had a .250/.321/.375 slash line with three doubles and one stolen base over 10 games before the suspension of spring training.
Cactus League play was uneventful for the 27-year-old prior to baseball operations being halted, though there was an offseason development as he inked a two-year, $27.5 million deal in January to buy out his final two years of arbitration. Story had a .917 OPS with 35 homers, 85 RBI and 23 stolen bases in 145 games in 2019, and once play resumes he's poised for another season as Colorado's starting shortstop.
Story signed a two-year, $27.5 million contract with the Rockies on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
This deal will buy out the final two seasons of arbitration for the shortstop. He put together another strong year at the dish in 2019, slashing .294/.363/.554 with 35 home runs, 85 RBI and 23 stolen bases in 145 contests.
Story is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.
Story will just be getting a routine off day with little on the line for the 70-91 Rockies in the season finale. Garrett Hampson will handle leadoff and shortstop duties Sunday while Story presumably wraps up his 2019 campaign with a .294/.363/.554 slash line to go with 35 home runs and 23 steals in 145 games.
Story went 2-for-5 with a walkoff solo home run in Saturday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Brewers.
Story's 35th homer of the year came off Brewers reliever Matt Albers, completing the comeback win for the Rockies. Story has added 23 stolen bases, 85 RBI and 111 runs scored in 144 games this season. Unfortunately, he added three strikeouts in the contest -- the shortstop has posted a 26.5 strikeout percentage to offset some of his otherwise stellar year.
Story is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Giants.
Story will head to the bench after starting the past 10 games, going 12-for-38 (.316) with four home runs and a steal over that stretch. Garrett Hampson is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff in his place.
Story went 1-for-6 with a solo home run and a pair of walks Tuesday in the Rockies' 8-5 loss to the Giants in 16 innings.
Story struck out in his first two plate appearances versus Madison Bumgarner, but he was able to touch up the Giants' ace for his 34th long ball of the season in the fifth inning. The Rockies have been using Story primarily in the leadoff spot since late August, but the move hasn't resulted in any heightened involvement on the bases for the shortstop. Over his 22 starts in the No. 1 spot in the lineup this season, Story has supplied just two stolen bases.
Story went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and a walk Monday in the Rockies' 9-4 win over the Mets.
Story's 33rd home run of the season punctuated a five-run inning for the Rockies, who rolled to their fourth consecutive win. The shortstop will hit leadoff in Tuesday's contest and looks poised to hold down that spot in the lineup for the rest of the season with manager Bud Black having seemingly settled on Charlie Blackmon as the team's cleanup batter.
Story went 3-for-5 with two home runs, three runs scored and three RBI in Friday's 10-8 win over the Padres.

Story went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a pair of runs in the Rockies' 16-9 defeat to the Dodgers on Monday.
Story officially reached the 30-homer plateau for a second straight season with a leadoff solo shot off Walker Buehler in the first inning. He's been a fantastic cross-category asset once again in 2019, as the 26-year-old is now slashing .298/.360/.561 through 125 games with 76 RBI, 34 doubles and five triples, while also stealing 19 bases in 27 attempts.
Story went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and another run scored in Friday's loss to the Pirates.

On the season, Story is slashing .300/.363/.563 29 with 29 home runs, 97 runs scored, 34 doubles and 19 stolen bases.
Story is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff Wednesday against the Red Sox, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Story has primarily hit second this season, but he'll swap places in the order with Charlie Blackmon with a left-hander in Eduardo Rodriquez starting for the Red Sox. The shortstop has been dialed in since the start of August, slashing .380/.443/.652 with six home runs and five stolen bases in 23 games.
Story is not in Friday's lineup against the Cardinals.
There has been no report of Story dealing with an injury, so it seems like a standard off day. He is hitting .378 with six home runs and four steals in 19 games this month. Garrett Hampson will start at shortstop and hit eighth.
Story went 4-for-4 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in the Rockies' 8-7 loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
The shortstop had one hit in his last eight at-bats coming in, but he got back on track in short order, racking up four more hits and driving in three of Colorado's seven runs on the day. Story is having another fantastic campaign at the dish, as this effort brings his slash line up to .296/.362/.573 to go along with 28 homers, 17 stolen bases and 74 RBI across 510 plate appearances.
Story went 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, and two runs in Saturday's win against the Marlins.
The 26-year-old is 12-for-28 in his past seven games, hitting safely in each of those games. Story is slashing .293/.361/.575 with 28 home runs with 90 runs and 70 RBI this season.
Story went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a pair of doubles, two runs scored and a walk in the Rockies' 8-6 loss to the Diamondbacks on Monday.

The shortstop took Gerrit Cole deep in the first inning -- the last time the Rockies would hold a lead in the rout -- to give Story four homers in his last five games and 26 on the year. The surge has pushed the 26-year-old's slash line up to .282/.347/.562 on the season.
Story went 2-for-2 with a two-run homer, a double, two runs scored and two walks in Sunday's 6-2 win over San Francisco.
Story has now left the yard in three straight contests to start August, raising his OPS from .877 to .909 during that span. The 26-year-old shortstop has 25 homers and 63 RBI this season as he looks for another top-10 NL MVP finish.
Story went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Giants.
The shortstop has gone deep on back-to-back nights, emphatically putting a 12-game power drought behind him. On the year, Story's slashing .279/.342/.549 with 24 homers, 14 steals, 61 RBI and 79 runs in 98 contests.
