FANTASY BASEBALL LINEUP ISSUES: TREVOR STORY THE STORY OF SPRING

Confirming what was obvious all along, the Colorado Rockies officially named Trevor Story the team's starting shortstop for Opening Day after a torrid spring training that saw him scorch the baseball to the tune of a .378 average and 6 home runs.  From the very start of camp, Story has been locked in at the plate and with Jose Reyes banished from the team due to his involvement in a domestic abuse issue, he could very well take the job outright for the remainder of 2016.  While Story has had contact issues in his minor league career, he comes off a Double-A and Triple-A campaign in 2015 when he hit a combined 20 home runs and stole 22 bases.  Again Story has problems with the strikeout as he whiffed at over a 24.0 percent clip in the minors which major league pitchers no doubt will take advantage of when they get more of a read on him but for now this is one guy who has everyone's full fantasy baseball attention for the start of the 2016 season.  We all know the thin air of Colorado turns many formerly unknown players into stars and Story's shortstop eligibility makes him one of the best upside plays in our fake game.
