NL home run leader Trevor Story out for season

The Colorado Rockies are right in the middle of the pack when it comes to the National League wildcard standings, but their chances to make the postseason for the first time since 2009 just got a lot worse.

It was reported that shortstop Trevor Story is expected to undergo surgery on his thumb and would likely miss the rest of the season.

Story was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday and he will likely have surgery on his injured left thumb. This surgery will likely sideline him for the rest of the season.

Story reportedly suffered the injury when he took a headfirst dive into second base on Saturday against the New York Mets. The team reported that he had suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament.

On the year, Trevor Story, 23, is batting .272 with 72 RBIs. He also leads the NL with 27 home runs on the year.
