Boston Red Sox sign Trevor Story to a six-year, $140 million deal

Written by Doug Rush

Following the signing of Carlos Correa, Trevor Story was the last big free agent on the free agent market.

Until he wasn’t.

The Boston Red Sox and Story agreed on a six-year, $140 million deal.

Story played for the last six years with the Colorado Rockies and hit .251 with 24 home runs and 75 RBI in 142 games.

The Red Sox already have Xander Boegarts at shortstop, so Boston will likely shift Story over to second base for the 2022 season.
