Nationals activated INF Stephen Drew from the 60-day disabled list.

Drew is not expected to play this weekend, but it's possible he could be ready at some point during the postseason. He's been out since late July with an abdominal strain.

Stephen Drew (abdomen) won't be ready to play in time for the NLDS, but could be available for the NLCS.

Drew wanted to make a return before the season ended, but that doesn't appear to be happening now. Even if Drew was healthy enough to return, it's questionable whether or not he'd be an upgrade on what the Nationals have available on the bench right now.

Stephen Drew (abdomen) is hopeful that he'll be able to rejoin the Nationals next week.

The veteran infielder has been intent on trying to return to the club before the end of the regular season. He still isn't sure how his body will respond to ramping up baseball activity, but as long as he's okay he would like to try.

Stephen Drew (abdomen) took batting practice on Wednesday before Washington's game against Atlanta.

Drew was moved to the 60-day disabled list on August 29, so it's obviously unlikely we'll see him play for Washington before the end of the 2017 season. It does give him a chance to rejoin the Nationals at some point in the postseason, however, and the fact he's felt well enough to swing the bat is a positive sign.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Stephen Drew may need a procedure for an old injury.

It's not clear if Baker is referring to Drew's abdominal strain, which put him on the disabled list in late July. Either way, it sounds like the veteran infielder is done for the 2017 season. He'll be a free agent this winter.

Nationals transferred INF Stephen Drew from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

It's a paperwork move to clear a roster spot for the return of Jayson Werth. Drew remains sidelined with an abdominal strain and might not make it back this season.

It was his first infield practice since he landed on the disabled list in late July with an abdominal strain. Drew should be ready to rejoin the Nationals before the end of the month.

Nationals placed INF Stephen Drew on the 10-day DL with an abdominal strain.

The ailment isn't believed to be serious and he shouldn't miss more than the minimum time required. The veteran infielder is hitting .253/.302/.358 with one homer and 17 RBI in 106 plate appearances this season.

Drew delivered an RBI single in the fifth inning that increased the Nationals' lead to 6-1 then added on a two-run double during a five-run uprising in the ninth. He's slashing a robust .348/.373/.500 with a homer and 12 RBI in 51 plate appearances on the season.

Stephen Drew went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Orioles.

The homer, a solo dong off Ubaldo Jimenez in the fifth inning, was the first in 12 games this year for the 34-year-old. He's just getting back into the swing of things after a hamstring strain on April 11 cost him a month and a half. Drew is hitting .240/.300/.400 in those 12 games.
