Stephen Drew: Confirms retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew said Monday that he has decided to end his professional baseball career, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Drew was spotted at Monday's game between the Nationals and Braves and emphasized that he would hang up his cleats after 12 seasons in the big leagues. The 35-year-old spent the 2017 campaign as a reserve infielder for Washington, slashing .253/.302/.358 in 46 games.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Activated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (abdomen) was activated from the disabled list Saturday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The Nationals have already ruled Drew out for the NLDS, but with this move, they keep open the possibility of getting Drew back later in the postseason, should they advance. Drew has missed nearly the entire second half with an abdominal strain.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Won't be ready for NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (abdomen) will not be ready for the NLDS but could be available later in the playoffs if the Nationals advance, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

He likely wouldn't make the roster even if he were ready, but if any of the Nationals' primary middle infielders were to suffer an injury, Drew could be useful in the NLCS or World Series, provided the Nationals get that far. The 34-year-old is hitting .253/.302/.358 with one home run in 106 plate appearances this season.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Plays catch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (abdomen) was able to play catch Sunday, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

An exact return date still has not been established for Drew, but it appears that he could make his way back to the field in the coming days. The 34-year-old hasn't played since July 25 but has been able to take at-bats and play catch in recent days.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Hoping to return next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (abdomen) said he hopes to play in some games next week, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Drew, who suffered a torn abdominal muscle at the end of July, remains set on returning before the end of the season. It was originally thought that he wouldn't be able to return this season, but the 34-year-old has been steadily ramping up his baseball activity in recent days and it now looks like a possibility. If he continues to trend in the right direction, Drew could potentially return to game action sometime next week, though it's unlikely that he'll be included on the Nationals' postseason roster even if he does return.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Takes at-bats in sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (abdomen) took some at-bats during a simulated game and jogged in the outfield Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Bryce Harper's simultaneous participation in the simulated game was presumably of greater interest to the Nationals, but like the outfielder, Drew also isn't closing the door on returning to the big club before the end of the regular season. In Drew's case, a return seems less likely, given that he's yet to receive clearance to resume sprinting since tearing the abdominal muscle from the bone in July. Even if Drew is able to get in a game or two in September, it's unlikely that he'll be included on the Nationals' postseason roster.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Return unlikely this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dusty Baker said it would be a miracle if Drew (abdomen) returned from the disabled list before the end of the season, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

Despite his manager's comments, Drew was still hopeful that'd he'd be able to return this season. He's been taking grounders and batting practice during the week, but he's still had trouble running. He apparently tore a lower abdomen muscle off the bone, so it sounds like he could need offseason surgery regardless of whether he's able to return before the season concludes.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Takes batting practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (abdomen) was out on the field taking batting practice prior to Wednesday's game against the Braves, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Although it remains unlikely that Drew will be back on the field before the end of the regular season, the infielder has been able to take cuts and participate in fielding drills in recent days. The main problem plaguing Drew is that he hasn't been able to do any running, and unless that changes in the immediate future, it seems as though his chances of coming back before the playoffs are slim.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Could be done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Tuesday that Drew (abdomen) could require surgery for an undisclosed injury that could sideline him for the remainder of the season, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

Drew has been sidelined since July 25 with a left abdominal strain, and the Nationals' decision to transfer him to the 60-day disabled list Monday ensures he won't be activated until Sept. 29 at the earliest. In addition to the abdominal injury, it sounds like Drew is also being slowed by an unrelated issue, which may be significant enough to keep him out of the mix for a spot on the Nationals' playoff roster. Even if Drew is able to avoid surgery and return to full health in the final handful of games of the season, Wilmer Difo's emergence as a useful utility man in the second half might have already quashed Drew's chances of earning a role with the Nationals in the postseason.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Shifted to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (abdomen) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

This is a bit surprising, as it appeared Drew was progressing well in his rehab and nearing a return to action. He'll now be eligible to return Sept. 29, all but ending his season. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Jayson Werth, who was reinstated from the 60-day DL in a corresponding move.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (abdominal strain) played catch Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

He has been running for a week or so, and this served as another benchmark in his recovery. Look for him to be activated from the DL either this week or next week.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Lands on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew was placed on the 10-day DL on Saturday with a left abdominal strain, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

Recent trade acquisition Howie Kendrick was activated to take Drew's spot on the active roster. Drew has provided some value in the field while serving in a bench role, but he's struggled at the plate to the tune of a .253/.302/.358 line. His opportunities figure to remain limited upon his return.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Struggling in July
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew is slashing .140/.213/.186 with 11 strikeouts in his last 47 plate appearances.

Drew is seeing fairly regular playing time with Trea Turner (wrist) still out indefinitely, but he's becoming harder to justify as a platoon option. The 34-year-old has a .244/.290/.356 slash line in 90 at-bats against right-handed pitching, and could see fewer opportunities with Wilmer Difo hitting well in July.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Sits again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew is out of the lineup Monday against the Mets, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Drew finds himself on the bench for the second straight game, though his absence Monday is less surprising with a left-hander (Steven Matz) toeing the rubber for the opposition. It's still expected that Drew will see most of the starts at shortstop against right-handers while Trea Turner (wrist) is sidelined, with Wilmer Difo (who's starting Monday) receiving the nods against southpaws.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Drives in three Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew got the start at third base in place of Anthony Rendon (neck) on Tuesday and went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI in a 12-3 rout of the Marlins.

The 34-year-old continues to produce when called upon, and Drew now sports an .873 OPS with a homer and 12 RBI in 22 games on the year. Barring a serious injury to one of the Nats' starting infielders, however, his value will be limited to deep NL-only season-long formats and as an occasional DFS play in a favorable matchup.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Homers Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew smacked a home run and finished 2-for-3 with two RBI, two runs scored and a walk Thursday against the Orioles in the Nationals' 6-1 victory.

After missing about six weeks with a hamstring injury, Drew has not played consistently since mid-April. However, Thursday night's outburst could perhaps be a sign of him getting back to normal. Still, the Nationals will continue to be cautious with Drew and his injury, meaning he may not be the best fantasy option right now, especially since he's not expected to jump into an everyday role any time soon.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (hamstring) was activated from the disabled list Monday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Drew is finally ready to rejoin the big club after a lengthy absence due to a hamstring ailment. The 34-year-old compiled a .222/.250/.278 triple slash across eight games before hitting the disabled list. He should resume his role as a reserve infielder for the Nats.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Continuing rehab in Florida
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (hamstring) will head to West Palm Beach to begin a rehab assignment, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

Drew, who has been sidelined since mid-April with a hamstring ailment, finally seems to be nearing a return to action. It's unclear how long he will need to spend on the rehab assignment, though it will likely be a while given the length of his absence. A clearer timetable for his return should become available as he continues to progress in his recovery.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Does light running Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (hamstring) was able to do some light jogging in the outfield Monday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Drew wasn't running at full speed, but it's at least a sign that he's getting healthier after the Nationals had restricted him from doing any sort of running since he first suffered the hamstring injury. The veteran infielder can be expected to gradually increase the intensity of his workouts in the coming days before heading out on a rehab assignment.

Nationals' Stephen Drew: Will need rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew (hamstring) is expected to head out on a rehab assignment before returning to the Nationals, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Drew was seen taking batting practice and fielding grounders Tuesday, so it appears he's nearing a return to game action. With starting shortstop Trea Turner back from the disabled list himself, Drew doesn't appear to have a clear path to regular at-bats once he's eventually activated from the DL. More should be known about a possible return date once Drew is sent out on his rehab assignment.
