The Colorado Rockies and All-Star shortstop Trevor Story finalized a $27.5 million, two-year deal, and avoided arbitration -leaving 18 players still headed to arbitration hearings, which run from Tuesday through Feb. 21.
The 27-year-old Story remains eligible to become a free agent following the 2021 World Series. He hit 35 homers and swiped 23 bases last season. He also set career highs in runs (111), batting average (.294) and on-base percentage (.363). Story is a career .276 hitter since making his debut in April 2016. He was a first-round draft pick in 2011.
