Trevor Story put up a first-round caliber season in 2018, but can he sustain that kind of breakout?

Our Fantasy Baseball Today crew are split on Story’s value. While Heath Cummings, Chris Towers and Adam Aizer are reluctant to believe in the Rockies shortstop as a Round 1-2 option, especially the 27 stolen bases he produced and the impressive contact improvements he made at the plate.

“There is still the concern for a guy who made that big of an improvement in strikeout rate that it doesn’t stick,” Heath said. “And, if he goes back to being a 30 percent strikeout rate guy he’s going to be streaky and it’s going to be frustrating.”

Scott White, however, is a believer.

“It’s rare to find the kind of five-category contribute he was last year after the first round — and sometimes he makes it to the third,” Scott said.
