Stephen Drew lands on 15-day DL

The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed shortstop Stephen Drew on the 15-day disabled list.

After tweaking his hammy against the Giants on the 17th, Drew returned to the lineup on the 22nd. He felt pain on Friday the 24th early in the game and now he will have the opportunity to let it heal.
"We figured if it's six or seven days before he'd be able to play again, rather than go short-(handed) for that long, go ahead and put him on the DL and get him healthy," Melvin said.
Drew is 1-for-15 since April 15th and he was hitting only .205 on the season.
