Trevor Story, Rockies agree to two-year, $27.5 million contract

Trevor Story Rockies

Trevor Story and the Colorado Rockies have agreed on a contract that will cover his final two years of arbitration.

The 27-year-old shortstop was set to go to arbitration with Colorado prior to the start of the 2020 season. He filed for $11.5 million, while the Rockies countered at $10.75 million. The two sides were able to work out a deal that pays him for 2020 and covers the shortstop’s final year of arbitration, which is in 2021.

The deal is for two years and $27.5 million, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Story has emerged as a top shortstop in the league the last two seasons. He slugged 35 homers with a .917 OPS last season, and 37 the year before with a .914 OPS. He has made the All-Star team two years in a row.

While the Rockies have issues with one of their franchise players, they at least seem to be on more positive terms with Story.
