The Rockies may be without star shortstop and NL MVP candidate Trevor Story for part of the 2018 stretch run.

Story left Colorado’s 8-2 loss to the Dodgers during his at-bat in the fourth inning with pain in his right elbow. After the game he said he suffered the injury making a diving defensive play in the first inning, the Denver Post reported.

Story, who is batting .288/.343/.550 with 33 home runs and 102 RBIs, is set to undergo testing on his elbow Tuesday.

Monday’s loss dropped the Rockies (82-68) a half-game behind the Dodgers (83-68) in the NL West and a half-game behind the Cardinals (83-68) for the second wild-card spot.
