Rockies’ Trevor Story scratched with bruised foot; Mike Dunn goes on DL

SEATTLE — The Rockies’ iron man is not indestructible after all.

Shortstop Trevor Story, who has played in 139 consecutive games, was a late scratch from the starting starting lineup for Saturday’s game against Seattle. Story has a bruised right foot after getting hit by a pitch by Roenis Elias in the top of the seventh inning in Colorado’s 7-1 victory over the Mariners Friday night.

Story, batting .282 with 16 home runs and 60 RBIs, has played in 781 of 782 innings at shortstop for Colorado this season. Daniel Castro played one inning on June 2 vs. the Dodgers. The last time Story missed a game was Aug. 5 vs. Philadelphia.

Utility man Pat Valaika replaced Story at shortstop for Saturday’s game.

In other moves, the club placed left-handed reliever Mike Dunn on the 10-day disabled list with an ailing shoulder, and put catcher Tom Murphy placed on the paternity list. Murphy returned to Denver on Friday to be with his wife, Lindsay, who’s expecting the birth of their child.

Colorado filled its roster by recalling utility infielder-outfielder Jordan Patterson and left-handed reliever Jerry Vasto from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Dunn’s injury, officially being called acromioclavicular (AC) joint inflammation, is troubling, and he’s expected to be out from quite some time.
