Stephen Drew placed on DL
The Nationals have placed Stephen Drew on the disabled list with vertigo symptoms. He's been dealing with the issue for over a week.
The team thought he could make a full recovery without spending time on the DL, but that changed when he didn't progress. He's played well this season, but he's also been in a limited role, limiting his fantasy value, posting an OPS of .882 over 103 at-bats.
Stephen Drew knocks in two against the Mets
Stephen Drew continues to make a strong push for the starting SS position for the Nationals. On Friday afternoon he hit a two run double and scored on an Espinosa three run home run. The double brought his average up to .350 this preseason.
At the present time Drew is not even being drafted in almost all leagues. He could be considered in deep NL only leagues as he provides decent power numbers for a middle infield position but will bleed your batting average.
Stephen Drew signs with Nationals
According to Jon Heyman, Drew has signed a one-year deal with the Washington Nationals for three million dollars and can earn an additional $1.25 million in incentives.
Drew played for the Yankees last season where he hit for only a .201 batting average but did have 17 home runs and 43 runs batted in over 428 plate appearances. Drew will likely serve as a backup middle infielder for the Nationals this season with limited fantasy appeal.
