MLB: Hope remains, Rockies makes qualifying offer to Trevor Story

On the afternoon of this Saturday, November 6, it was announced that Colorado Rockies has made a qualifying offer to Trevor Story as part of their attempts to keep him on the team heading into the 2022 Season of MLB. The shortstop became a free agent at the end of the 2021 campaign and rumors have emerged for weeks that he would be looking for another team.

MLB Network journalist Jon Heyman reported this afternoon that Trevor Story received a qualifying offer from the Colorado Rockies in the amount of $ 18.4 million for one year.

Heyman adds in his report that it is expected that the shortstop will not accept this negotiation, having as a deadline to respond to Colorado next Wednesday, November 17.

If Story decides to decline the qualifying offer, the Rockies will still have a chance to re-sign him, and if he chooses to go into free agency, the organization will receive compensation on the draft pick.

Trevor Story is one of four elite shortstops to be free agents this offseason and all of them are said to be looking to sign multi-year, million-dollar contracts heading into MLB 2022.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
