Boston Red Sox shortstop Trevor Story was forced out of Friday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels with a left shoulder injury.

Story suffered the injury while trying to make a diving catch on a line drive by Mike Trout in the fourth inning. He writhed in pain on the field before manager Alex Cora and the Red Sox training staff helped him off the field.

This is a tough break for a two-time All-Star who just hasn't been able to stay on the field for Boston. He played in just 94 games in 2022 due to injury and just seven last year after undergoing offseason elbow surgery.

Story spoke to reporters about his recent setback following Boston's 8-6 win.

“It obviously has something to do with the shoulder. Pretty painful,” he said. “We haven’t gotten any pictures yet. So we'll have that tomorrow. I'm not trying to put it into words yet because we don't know for sure. So yes, painful. It's simply that the body weight rests there on the shoulder.

Judging by Story's reaction, we can expect him to miss some time. He will undergo an MRI on Saturday to determine whether the injury was as bad as it looked.

“We don’t yet know how serious it is. “A lot of frustration,” Story added.

Pablo Reyes replaced Story at shortstop after the injury. If Story misses time, the Red Sox will hope that offseason addition Vaughn Grissom is healthy enough to bolster a suddenly depleted center field.
