29-year old lefty swinging shortstop Stephen Drew started out slowly in his first few games for the A’s in August, but he has been on fire with the bat for them in September. Drew has played in 24 games so far this month for the A’s and he is 28 for 95 (.295 avg, .837 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 5 homers and 14 RBIs. He has given the A’s a nice jolt at the top of the lineup as he has been leading off or batting second most of this month. Drew has now played in 34 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 36 for 133 (.271 avg, .761 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 5 homers, 16 RBIs and 1 stolen base. The A’s need Drew to remain hot at the plate.
