Trevor Story
Name: Trevor John Story
Born: Nov 15, 1992 in Irving, Texas USA
High School: Irving (Texas) HS
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 210 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 2nd round (45th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2011 (signed for $915,000)
Story is one of the few quality, surefire shortstops in the 2011 draft, with a better chance to stick at the position than Javier Baez and Levi Michael. Scouts who believe in Story's bat see him as close to a five-tool shortstop, so he could sneak into the end of the first round. He has smooth actions along with plus range and arm strength. He has shown a 90-92 mph fastball while occasionally closing games for Irving. Story has good pop for a middle infielder, though the 6-foot, 175-pounder generates his power by collapsing on his backside and using an uppercut. His quick hands generate plenty of bat speed and allow him to barrel balls, though he may need to tone down his swing against professional pitchers. He has above-average speed and runs the bases well. Though he has committed to Louisiana State, he's expected to turn pro if he gets selected before the start of the second round.
