PHOENIX (APCSN) Arizona shortstop Stephen Drew broke his right ankle sliding into home plate in the bottom of the fourth inning against Milwaukee on Wednesday night.The Diamondbacks said surgery was likely for the everyday shortstop, the anchor of the team's defense.
Drew was injured trying to score from second on Chris Young's base hit to left field. Drew, out on the play, grimaced in pain and signaled for help from the dugout. He did not put any weight on his right foot as he was helped from the field by trainers.
In nine games against the Giants this year, Drew is batting .211 (8-for-38), with five RBI, two runs and seven strikeouts.
