Story (finger) will start at shortstop and bat second in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Giants, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Story was removed late in the Rockies' last game Sunday against the Astros after being hit by a pitch on his right index finger, but X-rays cleared him of any structural damage. After getting an extra day to recover from the injury when Monday's series opener with the Giants was postponed due to inclement weather, Story looks like he'll be available for both ends of Tuesday's twin bill.
Story's X-rays on his finger Sunday came back negative, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Story left Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks in the bottom of the eighth inning after he was hit by a pitch on his right index finger in the top half of the frame. However, early tests showed that the shortstop didn't suffer a fracture, and the team is optimistic about his status. If Story is forced to miss any additional time, Alan Trejo could see increased playing time.
Story exited Sunday's game against Arizona in the bottom of the eighth inning due to an apparent finger injury, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Story was hit by a pitch on his right index finger in the top of the eighth inning Sunday, and he was replaced defensively in the bottom half of the frame. Prior to his departure, he went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk and a strikeout. It's not clear whether Story will be able to return for Monday's series opener against the Giants.
Story went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, three additional runs scored and a walk in a win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Story hit his third home run of the season off Caleb Smith in the sixth inning. He has scored seven runs over his last four games and is slashing .283/.336/.495 in 110 plate appearances this year.
Story went 2-for-4 with a grand slam and scored twice in a 12-2 win over the Phillies on Sunday.
Story capped off a seven-run fourth inning by pimping a grand slam into the left-field seats for his second home run in three games. The 28-year-old rewarded his patient fantasy managers with a recent power surge after needing 19 games to hit his first long ball of the campaign. Story has been seeing the ball extremely well lately, as he's slashing .417/.429/.792 with two home runs, nine RBI and six runs scored over his last seven games.
Story went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double Friday in a victory over Philadelphia.
Though Story is hitting a respectable .286/.320/.443 on the campaign, he entered Friday without a home run over his 66 at-bats. The start shortstop ended the power drought with a solo shot to left field in the fourth inning to put the Rockies on the board. Story has been among the league's top power-hitting shortstops since his first season in 2016, so there figures to be plenty more long balls off his bat as the season progresses.
Story isn't starting Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.
Story will get his first day off this year after slashing .265/.308/.367 with four extra-base hits and four RBI across 13 games to begin the season. Alan Trejo will receive his first major-league start at shortstop Thursday, batting eighth.

Story was red hot at the plate in this one, cranking an RBI double in the first inning, then an RBI triple in the second, both against Merrill Kelly. Despite a somewhat slow start to the season, Story still ranks among the top stat producers in the game, so look for him to elevate his current .226/.250/.355 batting line to his career norms sooner than later.
Story went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and one walk in Saturday's spring loss to the Cubs.
Story's power has been on full display this spring, and he put the Rockies on the board Saturday with a solo blast in the fourth inning. The shortstop has appeared in 10 Cactus League games and has gone 7-for-28 with four home runs, one double, seven RBI and nine strikeouts. Story has played on consecutive days just twice this spring, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. However, he'll occupy an everyday role in Colorado's lineup once the regular season gets underway.
Story went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run and one strikeout in Friday's spring loss to the Brewers.
Story was eased into action to begin spring training, but he batted second while playing shortstop in Friday's Cactus League matchup. He provided the team's only run production of the game with a 407-foot blast in the third inning. The 28-year-old enters the season as one of the league's top shortstops, but his counting stats could dip slightly in 2021 after Nolan Arenado was traded to the Cardinals during the offseason.
