Red Sox’s Trevor Story to have season-ending shoulder surgery

   Boston Red Sox shortstop Trevor Story will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a fracture in his shoulder, chief baseball officer Craig Breslow told reporters Tuesday.
Story, 31, is expected to be sidelined for six months after the surgery to repair a fracture of his glenoid, which is scheduled for Friday, Breslow said.

Difficult to speculate beyond that,” Breslow said before Tuesday’s home opener against the Baltimore Orioles. “But you can kind of do the math there.
The Red Sox placed Story on the injured list late last week after he dislocated his left shoulder while making a diving stop on a hit by the Angels’ Mike Trout on Friday night.

Before the injury, Story had started each of Boston’s first eight games this season, finally getting back to normal after two campaigns filled with injury woes since he left the Colorado Rockies for a six-year, $140 million deal with the Red Sox in March 2022.
Story played in just 94 games in 2022 after missing significant time with injuries to his right hand and left foot.
He appeared in only 43 games last season after recovering from major offseason surgery to repair a torn UCL.

Story was hitting .226 with 4 RBIs this season and has a .227 average and .681 OPS in two-plus seasons with the Red Sox. A two-time All-Star while with the Rockies, he is a career .265 hitter with 177 home runs and 534 RBIs.
“Very significant,” Breslow said of Story’s loss.
“Not going to hide from what he’s meant to this team defensively and had full confidence offensively that he was going to contribute as well with what he was able to do in spring training. Fortunately, he’s emerged as a leader on this team, and I think there’s still ways for him to be an asset to the team.
not going to be on the field right now, though.

At this time, coach. Alex Cora said: I said it’s over. The plan is to have a platoon of players at shortstop and second base.
now, I think we’re doing our best to get some options in the infield,” Breslow said. “Let’s try this... It’s worth moving forward in this small moment and let’s continue to evaluate.
