From NYC To DC: Drew Signs With Nats

As the Yankees continued to make moves this offseason it seemed even less likely that they were going to re-sign free agent Stephen Drew.

The 32 year old signed a one year deal which is worth $3 million, with the Washington Nationals on Tuesday. A solid utility player, Drew was the starting shortstop for the Boston Red Sox throughout the World Series run in 2013 and then after a disappointing start of the 2014 season was acquired by the Yankees at the deadline.

Although he hit just .201 in the 2015 season, he had 17 homers and became a clutch bench player when the Yankees needed him most, especially defensively.

The Nationals’ recent signing of Daniel Murphy  and now Drew will add depth to their infield and adding seasoned players with postseason experience will help a young team that just needs that extra push.
