Trevor Story was removed from Saturday’s game against the Mets after he injured his thumb.
Rockies shortstop Trevor Story left Saturday’s game against the Mets with what the team is calling a jammed thumb. X-rays were negative.
In the top of the fourth inning, Story’s thumb got caught on second base as he dove in head first on a slide. He was tagged out after immediately lifting his hand off the bag in a bit of pain, and looked at in the dugout. He would take the field for the bottom half of the inning, but was removed after diving for a ball hit in the hole.
The 23-year-old rookie leads the National League with 27 home runs, and is hitting .272 with 72 RBIs on the season.
