Boston Red Sox shortstop Trevor Story has been placed on the 10-day injured list after dislocating his left shoulder while making a diving stop on Mike Trout’s hit Friday night.

Boston recalled infielder David Hamilton from Triple-A Worcester on Saturday to take the roster spot of Story, who has been beset by injuries since joining the Red Sox two seasons ago.

Boston Chief Baseball Officer Craig Breslow declined to say when Story is likely to return, saying the club needs more information. Breslow also didn’t know whether Story will need surgery.

Story will be re-examined in Boston on Monday.

“It’s early, and we still have more information to gather, but more than anything, you just feel for Trevor and the road that he’s taken to get back here and to put himself in a position to impact our club,” Breslow said. “In addition to how it affects our team, obviously he’s a guy that wants to be out there and is super-competitive and is tired of the injuries.”

The 31-year-old Story had an MRI exam on Saturday, revealing the dislocation, which occurred when the two-time All-Star hit the ground hard while making a backhand stop on Trout’s single in the fourth inning of Boston’s 8-6 victory. Story was left writhing in pain on the outfield grass after landing with most of his body weight on his shoulder.


Story started each of Boston’s first eight games this season, finally getting back to normal after two seasons filled with injury woes since he left Colorado for a six-year, $140 million deal with the Red Sox in March 2022.

Story played in just 94 games in 2022 after missing significant time with injuries to his right hand and left foot. He appeared in only 43 games last season after recovering from major offseason surgery on his right elbow.

Story was downbeat in the Boston clubhouse after the game, and Breslow said the shortstop was disappointed after his MRI exam.

“I can see his reaction right now to knowing that he’s going to be on the IL and see that he’s an incredible teammate and someone who’s deeply invested in this team, in this organization, and it’s tough to see,” Breslow said. “I don’t want to speak for him, but my sense is he takes a lot of pride in being out there.”

Pablo Reyes started at shortstop for Boston on Saturday against the Angels. The 26-year-old Hamilton largely struggled in his major league debut last season, going for 4 for 33 and making two errors during his first 15 games.

The Red Sox have a few options when it comes to replacing Story in the short-term. Hamilton and Pablo Reyes could slot in, potentially as a righty-lefty platoon that would leave the club light on offense. It’s possible, too, that center fielder Ceddanne Rafaela could move to the infield until Story returns, with Jarren Duran playing center between Wilyer Abreu and Tyler O’Neill. The Red Sox are also expecting Vaughn Grissom to rejoin the club in the coming weeks. While his defensive limitations at shortstop had him slated to be the everyday second baseman, he could fill in for Story if the Red Sox want to keep Enmanuel Valdez in the lineup as the second baseman.


RED SOX setup man Chris Martin’s streak of 24 consecutive scoreless appearances ended Friday when he gave up an RBI single to Miguel Sanó.

But the 37-year-old righty, who had last allowed a run July 28, 2023, recorded two huge outs to help lead the Red Sox to a wild 8-6 victory.

Sanó’s RBI single tied the game 6-6 in the seventh inning. It put runners at first and third base with just one out. But Martin struck out Mickey Moniak swinging and retired Logan O’Hoppe on a fly-out to right field to keep the game tied.

The Red Sox regained the lead in the eighth on Duran’s go-ahead homer. O’Neill added his second home run of the game in the ninth inning.

O’Neill and Triston Casas belted back-to-back homers in the second inning and Reese McGuire added a two-run shot as the Red Sox grabbed a 4-0 lead.

The Angels tied the game at 5-5 in the sixth on grand slam by O’Hoppe off reliever Josh Winckowski, which followed two errors and a hit batsman.
