Scottsdale, Ariz. — Colorado Rockies All-Star shortstop Trevor Story has become as adept at handling questions about his current and future situations as he has snaring a one-hopper up the middle to start a double play.
“Do you think you’ll be a member of the Colorado Rockies in 2022?” This is the question Trevor Story is asked.
Story hears the question and shakes his head, not in a yes or no pattern but just in a “here we go” acknowledgement of the question that seems to be on everyone’s mind.
“I don’t know, I really don’t know,” Story offers. “That’s the best answer I can give you. Nothing’s being talked about right now so that’s … I just don’t know.”
One of, if not the, best shortstops in Major League Baseball today isn’t sure what tomorrow is going to bring … or the day after that … or any day really until Major League Baseball’s trade deadline of July 31 … or maybe even after that. What he does know, however, is that he’s going to keep playing the game he loves as hard as he can for whatever jersey he pulls on at the start of each pregame preparation.

Sitting in the shade after a workout at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, the 28-year-old Story has put on a mask but not changed out of his sweaty practice jersey. He has gone from unknown rookie to home run hitting phenom to near Gold Glove status to the best of the best at his position during his meteoric rise since debuting for the Rockies on April 4, 2016. Now, as we draw near to the five-year anniversary of the historic day that made “Story time” a part of Rockies fans’ vocabulary, we wonder what’s next for Story and the amount of days he’ll be spending in a Rockies uniform, knowing his contract expires at the end of the 2021 campaign.
Story took time to answer some of those questions and talk about what may lie ahead in a wide-ranging interview as Rockies spring training kicked into high gear in Scottsdale.
