Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports that Stephen Drew is retiring.
Drew, 35, and the brother of fellow major leaguers J.D. and Tim Drew, played the last two seasons for the Washington Nationals. Before that he called New York, Boston, Oakland and Arizona home. He was a first round pick of the Dbacks back in 2004 and made his major league debut in 2006.
Over the course of his 12-year big league career Drew hit .252/.318/.423 (OPS+ 94) with 123 homers while primarily manning shortstop.
Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.
The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.
If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
