Ladies and gentlemen? The Stephen Drew experiment is officially over.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Stephen Drew has signed a one-year deal worth $3 Million with the Washington Nationals. It was all but confirmed the Yankees weren’t planning on bringing Drew back next season when they didn’t bother to offer him a qualifying offer. The team later traded Adam Warren and Brendan Ryan for infielder Starlin Castro from the Chicago Cubs and stated Castro was to be the Yankees starting second basemen in 2016. The Yankees prided Drew on his defense but he struggled offensively, hitting .201/.271/.381 in 131 games last season.

Drew provides the Nationals more options regarding their bench, and he’ll even get a chance to win a starting job in Spring Training.

Well Stephen…we hardly knew ye.

  2. Jerry says:

    Why would the Yankees make Drew a qualifying offer?

    he wasn't terrible last year especially during the 2nd half…hit .240ish during June, July and August before struggling again in September when Refsnyder started getting at-bats…Drew is a .200 hitter with a very good glove…this team should be able to expect more…

    Bye bye Stephen..Tied with my other favorite Yankee MVP,…….. Chris Capuano

  6. The damage that his tenure with the Yankees did will probably never be quantified. He certainly decreased their chances of winning their division and prevented the development of Refsnyder. He should of batted ninth on days that he was penciled in instead of Didi. All in all one colossal signing mistake by the Yankees.
