Story signs 6 year 140 million worth up 160 million
The Boston Red Sox sign all star shortstop Trevor Story to a 6 year 160 mill a With this contract he will be moved to second base and has made the Boston’s infield one of the best in the league and help the Red Sox contend in the American League.
This years free agent class for shortstops was very high but the guy that stood out to me a lot was Trevor Story, a 2x All-Star and a 2x silver slugger. This past season Story hit 24 homers .251 batting average and had an OPS of .801. That was semi not his best year but if thats anyones somewhat best year thats pretty impressive. However 2018-2019 was his best years where he hit a total of 72 homers and averaged .876 batting and an average of 2.745 OPS, along with making two all star appearances and winning his two silver slugger awards.
In his six years in the Majors he never hit under 24 home runs! Thats a pretty impressive upgrade since the player before him was an all-star in Troy Tulowitski. https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/s/storytr01.shtml
Boston Red Sox
With the Boston Red Sox signing Trevor Story with an already top 5 shortstop in Xander Bogaerts (2x World Series Champ) and has a lot of accolades, that just means he will be moved to second base a much similar position. The Red Sox now have an elite and skilled playmakers at the infield positions.
Rafael Devers at Third, Bogaerts at shortstop and Bobby Dalbec and adding Story to the mix, they now have one of the best infields in the whole MLB. Not only does this help the Red Sox this helps them contend and be in the mix with the Blue Jays who also made big changes in the offseason.
