Nationals | Stephen Drew gets start at DH

Mon, 02 May 2016 15:13:18 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Stephen Drew is starting at designated hitter and batting seventh Monday, May 2, opposite Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: With the Nationals playing in an AL park the next few days, they get the luxury of being able to implement a designated hitter, which means a boost in playing time for Drew. Even so, he's a very unappealing option in daily leagues, as he's finished with a .201 batting average or less in each of the past two seasons. This year, he has just three hits in his first 24 at-bats.

Nationals | Two Nats take a seat

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:23:57 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon and OF Michael Taylor are out of the lineup Thursday, April 28. OF Matt den Dekker is leading off, and 3B Stephen Drew is hitting eighth. C Wilson Ramos remains on the bereavement list with C Pedro Severino hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Drew and den Dekker are below the Mendoza Line and don't have enough upside for a start against Aaron Nola. Severino has four career at-bats, and he's not a great flyer either.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa resting Sunday

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:48:24 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Danny Espinosa is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Sunday, April 24. INF Stephen Drew will play shortstop and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Espinosa and Drew have struggled at the plate this season and neither player makes a great option in daily fantasy games at this point.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy out of the lineup

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 07:53:42 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Saturday, April 23. 2B Stephen Drew will start at second base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Drew has received some starts over the first few weeks of the season and has gone 3-for-12 at the plate. Drew is valuable in NL-only leagues but is not a great option in other leagues.

Nationals | Washington sitting four starters

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 10:13:32 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor, 1B Ryan Zimmerman, C Wilson Ramos and SS Danny Espinosa are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Charlie Morton Sunday, April 17. OF Chris Heisey will start in center field and is batting first. 1B Clint Robinson will start at first base and is batting sixth. SS Stephen Drew will start at shortstop and is batting seventh, while C Jose Lobaton will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: All four players in the starting lineup have not received a lot of playing time this season, but Heisey, Drew and Lobaton have posted decent batting averages so far. Owners probably should be able to find better options for their starting lineups and can avoid the players.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon, Ryan Zimmerman out

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 12:59:02 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon and 1B Ryan Zimmerman are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. 2B Stephen Drew is at third base and is hitting second, while 1B Clint Robinson is starting at first base and is batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Drew nor Robinson should be very attractive in daily contests Tuesday evening. Drew does have more appeal as a deep sleeper, though, near the top of the order, and after all he did hit 17 home runs last season.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa likely to be regular SS

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 17:03:43 -0800

Washington Nationals INF Danny Espinosa is considered the favorite to replace free-agent SS Ian Desmond as the team's starting shortstop, according to multiple sources. However, general manager Mike Rizzo said INFs Stephen Drew and Trea Turner will also have an opportunity to win the job during spring training.

Fantasy Tip: In 118 regular-season games last season, Espinosa hit .240 with 13 home runs and 37 RBIs. He has decent pop for a middle infielder and his versatility should make him a useful player to have off the bench in NL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues, although he won't hit for a high average and isn't as much of a threat on the basepaths as he was several years ago. Turner is considered to be the Nats' shortstop of the future and will probably begin the 2016 season in the minors. His progress should be monitored in NL-only, deep mixed and dynasty leagues.

Nationals | WAS signs veteran Stephen Drew

Tue, 29 Dec 2015 20:49:12 -0800

The Washington Nationals signed free-agent 2B Stephen Drew (Yankees) to a one-year deal worth $3 million Tuesday, Dec. 29, according to sources. The deal also includes $1.25 million in incentives.

Fantasy Tip: With Danny Espinosa and the newly signed David Murphy in the mix, it's hard to see where Drew fits in. He might float around and provide others breathers, but he is unlikely to start regularly.

Yankees | Stephen Drew doubtful for playoffs

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 18:12:08 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew (concussion) has been diagnosed with a vestibular concussion and is unlikely to see any playing time during the postseason. The injury has caused him dizziness and loss of equilibrium for nearly one month.

Fantasy Tip: Drew ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) hit .201 with 17 home runs and 44 RBIs in 383 at-bats this season and can be dropped in all fantasy formats. Dustin Ackley ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) and Rob Refsnyder ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) have been platooning at the keystone position in Drew's absence, with Ackley facing most righties and Refsnyder facing most lefties.

Yankees | Stephen Drew's season over?

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 15:17:24 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew (concussion) needs more concussion tests, and manager Joe Girardi didn't sound optimistic that Drew would return this year. Drew has suffered through dizziness and equilibrium problems and hasn't played in more than a week. Girardi isn't expecting Drew to return. Drew will be a free agent this winter and may not return to the Yankees. 2Bs Dustin Ackley and Rob Refsnyder have been rotating at second base in a platoon arrangement.

Fantasy Tip: You can forget about Drew ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) playing again this year and ignore him on FantasyScore. Ackley ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) and Refsnyder ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) are merely deep sleepers in a great matchup.
