In order to fix a fracture in his shoulder, Boston Red Sox shortstop Trevor Story will require season-ending surgery, chief baseball officer Craig Breslow announced to reporters on Tuesday.

Story, 31, will undergo surgery on Friday to repair a fractured glenoid, and afterward, Breslow said, he should be out for six months.

Story fought back tears when he spoke after the game and wore a sling when he was introduced as part of the team’s ceremonies.

After Story dislocated his left shoulder diving to save a Friday night hit by Mike Trout of the Angels, the Red Sox placed him on the injured list late last week.

Story, who had started all eight of Boston’s games this season prior to the injury, was finally returning to normal after two seasons marred by injuries following his departure from the Colorado Rockies in March 2022 to sign a six-year, $140 million contract with the Red Sox.

Story missed a lot of time in 2022 due to injuries to his left foot and right hand, playing in just 94 games. After recovering from significant offseason surgery to repair a torn UCL, he played in just 43 games in the previous campaign.

Story has a.227 average and a.681 OPS in his two plus seasons with the Red Sox. This season, he was hitting.226 with four RBIs. He was a two-time All-Star for the Rockies and has 534 RBIs, 177 home runs, and a career batting average of.265.

According to Cora, the strategy is to platoon players at shortstop and second base while Story is out.
