Drew out with groin strain

J.D. Drew will miss tonight’s game with a slight groin strain, the injury that forced him out of last night’s game when he felt a twinge while he running to second on a double. Drew, 11 for 25 during his seven-game hitting streak, thinks the injury will keep him out for 24 to 48 hours, and he’s not certain yet if he will play tomorrow.

“I feel like I’m swinging the bat where I don’t want to miss any time at all,” Drew said. “But that being said, I’ve got to be smart about it. If I get on base tonight and had to go first to third or something, it a very good chance I could mess it up pretty bad. I think in a couple days it should respond pretty well.”
