The Colorado Rockies have had a tough go in 2021. Currently sitting in fourth place in the competitive NL West at 24-37, it already looks like a lost season in the Rocky Mountains. Of course, the Rockies' best player, Trevor Story, has been on the IL, which certainly hasn't helped matters.
However it looks like help is on the way. Story is projected to be back in the lineup on Thursday.
Story hasn't played since May 27, but was having an uncharacteristically down year prior to that, hitting just .255. The star shortstop has been the subject of heavy trade rumors for months now. And with the Rockies' lack of success, a deal seems more likely than ever.
Him being healthy and showing he can still produce at his normal level will be key in any deal for the Rockies. So whether it's to get better value in a deal or help the team improve, Story coming back to the lineup is great for Colorado.
