2022 Player Outlook
Story has been excellent for fantasy over the years, and even though his batting average fell to .251 last year, a .293 BABIP didn’t do him any favors. He stole 15 bags in just 59 games in 2020, and in the last three full seasons, he has 20+ stolen bases in each season. One interesting thing to note from last season is that 17 of his 20 stolen bases came in the first 77 games of the season, meaning that he had just three stolen bases over the final 65 games. For his career, he’s a .241 hitter on the road with a .752 OPS, but he’s going to a lineup that has more talent than what he had in Colorado last season. His counting stats should be a nice boost, and he should enjoy some of those parks in the AL East. Also, he’s going to gain another position to his ledger, likely second base, making him more enticing in his new threads.
