MLB: Rockies options to replace short stop Trevor Story, via trade

There are some shortstops that might be available on the trade for Colorado Rockies, in case they lose Trevor Story. The Arizona D-Backs would surely listen to offers for the veteran Nick Ahmed, 31 years old.

The Philadelphia Phillies could find an upgrade over Didi Gregorius (31 years old). The Oakland Athletics will likely try to find a taker (team) for Elvis Andrus. However, all three players will command pretty notable salaries in 2022, and none are definite upgrades over Colorado’s insider options:

The Rockies could move more aggressively in an attempt to land a younger, more affordable player from teams with greater infield depth (i.e., Adalberto Mondesi, of the Kansas City Royals or Taylor Walls, of the Tampa Bay Rays).

But that would require parting ways with young talent from a farm system that Baseball America placed in the bottom five of the league in August. After a 74-87 season, it’s also probably not the most advisable course of action for the Rockies.

Discovering shortstop has probably been a point of emphasis this winter for general manager Bill Schmidt and his staff. Whether they choose to rely on an inside option without much MLB experience at the job or seek help outside the organization, it’s hard to imagine a scenario where they enter 2022 with as much confidence in their shortstop group as they have during a lot of time.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and all Mexican baseball in general. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterruptedly since 2009), signatures of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, although as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I have baseball in my veins. Degree in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
