There were tons of players traded ahead of this year’s MLB trade deadline, making it perhaps the most exciting trade deadline ever. But for all the deals that were made and all the players who were moved, Trevor Story surprisingly remained with his team.

So what is the reason?
According to Jon Heyman, the Rockies received trade offers for Story.
