Today's player is the Boston Red Sox's Trevor Story, who can play as an infielder of the USA in the 2023 World Baseball Classic.
The Colorado Rockies picked Trevor Story with the 45th overall selection in the first round of the 2011 MLB draft. He made his big league debut in an opening game in 2016 with two home runs splendidly. In the year, he appeared in 97 games, hitting 27 homers. In 2018 the 29-year-old slugger marked his batting average of .291 with 37 shots and 27 stolen bases to win the National League Silver Slugger Award.
Right-haded Speedman grabbed the back-to-back NL Silver slugger the following year and attracted baseball fans to his sprint, leading the league in stolen bases in 2020.
Story is a five-tool player to have had more than twenty stolen bases and more than twenty home runs every year, excluding 2020, the shortened season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
He transferred to Boston with a six-year contract 2021 off-season and had a big game with three shots in a game this May.
Story will contribute to the USA in the 2023 WBC with his superb batting, fielding, and running.
