Key Stats: Stephen Drew had an OPS over .900 after the All-Star break last season. Perhaps the most encouraging sign in his development was his .300 average versus right handed pitching after hitting .235 off of righties the previous season. He drew 19 less walks than he did in 2007, but the more aggresive approach paid off.
Skeptics Say: He is related to J.D. Drew.
Peer Comparison: Many publications are putting Drew in front of Jhonny Peralta, but I don’t see why.
- Peralta had more HR, RBI, and runs last season
- Peralta is only one year younger than Drew
- Peralta doesn’t have a brother who annoys the hell out of me
- Peralta has proven himself to be consistent and Drew has only had one good year
- Peralta has less hype and will be the better buy in most drafts
Lineup Outlook: Batting leadoff should give Drew an opportunity to score about 110 runs. This figure could change drastically depending on the health of Eric Byrnes and/or the emergence of Justin Upton.
Projection: Keeper league players should be thinking about Drew for the long term.
