Colorado’s Trevor Story has been the talk of baseball through the first week of the season. The rookie shortstop is off to a torrid start, hitting .333 with 7 HR and 12 RBI through the team’s first six games. No other player in Major League history has hit more home runs through his team’s first six games.
What better way to illustrate the magnitude of Story’s unprecedented performance than through Strat-O-Matic’s Baseball Daily digital cards?
In Baseball Daily, Strat-O-Matic player cards reflect a combination of current season stats, recent performance, projected stats and Strat-O-Matic’s proprietary algorithms and ratings. Story, who did not play in the Major Leagues prior to 2016, had his card based entirely on projections to open the season.
Here is a look at Trevor Story’s Strat-O-Matic’s Baseball Daily card on Monday, April 4:
Through his team’s first three games, Story hit .286 with 4 HR, 7 RBI and a 1.429 OPS. As you can see, his Baseball Daily card on April 8 improved drastically from his Opening Day card.
Story racked up five more hits and three additional home runs during the next three days, giving him a .333 BA and 1.468 OPS through the first six games of the season. On Monday, April 11, his card improved even further, giving him one of the hottest Baseball Daily cards at the moment.
Over the course of a 162-game season, most players will experience their share of hot and cold streaks. Strat-O-Matic Baseball Daily cards are designed to accurately reflect these streaks. Perhaps no player will better exemplify how a player’s card can change in a short period of time than Trevor Story, thanks to his historic week.
