There is a plan by the Red Sox to deal with the injury to Trevor Story


The Red Sox are going to be without one of their most important players for some time.
Trevor Story sustained a “significant” shoulder injury Friday night at Angel Stadium.
While Boston initially placed the veteran shortstop on the 10-day injured list, Story appears to be bracing for a longer stretch out of the lineup.
So, what will the Red Sox do at shortstop while Story is inactive?
“We also have some infielders on the roster, off the roster in Triple-A.
We’ll be creative.” Breslow and Cora weren’t in positions to give too definitive or detailed breakdowns, as the Red Sox still are gathering information on Story’s injury.
The club should know more about the 31-year-old’s status — and thus the plan moving forward — Monday when it returns to Boston.
In the meantime, the Story-less Sox will try to win their series with the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.


One of the most vital players for the Red Sox will be out for some time.

Trevor Story was hurt on Friday night at Angel Stadium, sustaining a “significant” shoulder injury. Although Story was initially placed on the 10-day injured list by Boston, it seems that he is prepared for a longer absence from the starting lineup.

Manager Alex Cora and chief baseball officer Craig Breslow offered some insight on Saturday regarding what the Red Sox will do at shortstop with Story sidelined.

Breslow told reporters, “I think we’ve got some depth,” according to MassLive. There is a left-handed option there with (David) Hamilton stepping up and being able to fill in. Pablo Reyes possesses a wealth of shortstop experience.

“We also have a few infielders in Triple-A who are not on the roster. Thus, I believe we’ll sort of assess the circumstances as they arise. However, we still need more information in the short term before we’re ready to handle that. “.

“We’re going to platoon at short, we’re going to platoon at second,” Cora continued. We’ll use imagination. “.

Given that the Red Sox are still obtaining information regarding Story’s injury, Breslow and Cora were unable to provide very specific or in-depth analyses. When the team returns to Boston on Monday, it should have more information regarding the 31-year-old’s condition and the future plan.

The Story-less Sox will attempt to win their series against the Angels on Sunday in the interim. Complete coverage on NESN starts at 3 p.m. me. ET.
