J.D. Drew is already injured, so don’t count on him playing a full season this year. Drew is still battling back soreness from his herniated disk last season.
Drew said that an MRI taken after the 2008 playoffs revelead no serious damage, and he could play right now if the team needed him.
In 109 games last year, J.D. Drew had 19 HRs and 64 RBI’s. He came up huge when David Ortiz went down with injury in June, so he still has something left in the tank.
Reaction: This isn’t surprising, considering it’s J.D. Drew and the type of injury he’s dealing with. It takes a long time to heal a herniated disk. He probably won’t feel right until the middle of the season or so. Either way, it’s not good that Mark Kotsay will be out and Drew will be playing hurt…
