Don't make any Trevor Story puns, Devan. Don't do it.
Too late. The Rockies' rookie shortstop has been a mammoth story this season, as he continues to break record after record. A few of the highlights from his six home run performance in his first four career games:
In four games this season, Story is hitting .368 (7-for-19) with six home runs and 11 RBIs in 19 plate appearances. According to FanGraphs, he has already been worth 0.6 Wins Above Replacement, tied for second in the Major Leagues.
The best thing of all is that Story wasn't even supposed to be the Rockies' starting shortstop coming into this year. When Troy Tulowitzki was traded to the Blue Jays last summer, the Rockies received Jose Reyes and gave him that job.
He'd still be here now if he did not have some domestic violence allegations put up against him and was suspended indefinitely earlier this spring. This opened up the door for Story, the Rockies' 11th-best prospect (via MLB.com) to take the starting job.
I guess you could say the rest is hiSTORY.
