Info & MLB Debut Date

MLB Debut Date: 4/4/2016
|April 4, in a 10-5 win over the Diamondbacks. The starting shortstop, he batted second and went 2-for-6 with a pair of HRs, collecting four RBIs and striking out twice. Both HRs came off Arizona SP Zack Greinke – a three-run shot to right field in the third inning and a solo blast to left-center field in the fourth inning. He grounded out in his first big-league at-bat|
|Pardon the pun, but Story was certainly one of the big stories in the first week of play. That will happen when you hit a pair of homers in your first big league game, blast solo homers in each of your next two games, and then tack on a second two-homer game in your fourth outing. That was pretty much the pace he’d been at during spring training when he won the club’s Spring Training MVP award after hitting .340 with 6 HRs and 13 RBIs in 20 games. Story’s 70 extra-base hits tied him for third in the minors in 2015 as he led the system in HRs and RBIs. Veteran shortstop Jose Reyes’ stint on the restricted list opened the spot up for Story. Before putting up big numbers at two levels in 2015, Story cruised through three stops in 2014, combining to hit .263 with 14 HRs, 48 RBIs and 26 doubles between Tri-City (Short-Season A), Modesto (High A) and Tulsa (Double-A). 2080 NOTES: Ranked No. 86 in 2080 Baseball’s Preseason Top 125 Prospect Ranking List, 2080’s C.J. Wittmann said: “Story has plus raw power, plus arm strength and good baserunning instincts that make his speed to play up to average.” Read Wittmann’s profile of Story here.|
