OAKLAND, Calif. Michael Oher Jersey . —The Oakland
Athletics landed their veteran shortstop in Stephen Drew. Current shortstop
Cliff Pennington and the rest of the As players found out by ballpark
announcement late in the game. The As acquired Drew from the Arizona
Diamondbacks on Monday in exchange for minor league infielder Sean Jamieson. The
trade, announced by Oakland before the seventh inning of Monday nights game with
the Minnesota Twins, reunites Drew with former D-backs manager Bob Melvin—in
his first full season as As skipper. “Itll be refreshing and a new start,” Drew
said. “Its a good feeling to go over there and still be competing (for the
post-season).” Drew is expected to join Oakland in time to play the middle game
of the series against the Twins on Tuesday. He recently returned after being
sidelined for nearly a year with a fractured right ankle. He sat out 137 games
in all. The 29-year-old Drew is batting .193 with two home runs and 12 RBIs in
40 games since coming back June 26. “Coming back, Ive been hitting the ball well
but havent been finding any holes,” he said. Diamondbacks general manager Kevin
Towers said last month it was “highly unlikely” the team would trade Drew this
season, saying he hadnt received an offer for either Drew or Justin Upton that
would improve the Arizona club. As GM Billy Beane must have changed his mind.
“We must be very persuasive,” Oakland assistant GM David Forst said, noting the
As will see how the remainder of the season goes with Drew before making any
decisions about his status with the club for 2013. “It was more than likely he
would have tested free agency so we probably would have only had his services
for another six weeks,” Towers said. “I have no doubt in my mind that hell make
the As a much better ballclub.” Oakland, a surprise playoff contender this
season with a cast of moving parts and new faces, had been looking for a
consistent regular in the middle of the infield given the struggles and injuries
of Pennington and Adam Rosales. Pennington is hitting .198 with three home runs
and 18 RBIs in 92 games. That includes batting 6 for 29 (.207) in 10 games since
returning from the disabled list Aug. 7 after missing time with elbow tendinitis
—his first career DL stint. “He plays the same position, so I guess well see
what happens,” Pennington said. “I was sitting there in the dugout and they
announced it. I have no idea what those guys (in the front office) think. Im
going to try to pretend I do.” During the 2007 post-season playing for Melvin
and the NL West champions, Drew batted .387 with two home runs and four RBIs in
seven games, including .294 (5 for 17) against the Colorado Rockies in the NL
championship series. “I do know Stephen and hes a good player,” Melvin said,
preferring to wait until Tuesday to elaborate on the move. “Hell be a good fit
here.” Drew is coming off the severe ankle injury and has a $10 million mutual
option for next season. If the option is not picked up, Drew receives a $1.35
million buyout. “I think hes probably recovered better than I thought,” Towers
said. “We have a lot of middle infielders and its tough to spread the reps and
at bats among three middle infielders.” The As will make corresponding moves to
their 40-man and 25-man rosters upon Drews arrival. He is currently in an
0-for-15 stretch and is batting .069 (2 for 29) over his past nine games. Drew
homered in consecutive games Aug. 5-7. Second baseman Jemile Weeks said the
announcement was “surprising to everybody.” “Hes a good player, so if he comes
along and jumps in and fits in and helps us win, were all for it,” Weeks said.
“I guess theyre trying to make a push, theyre trying to improve what they feel
they need to improve. Theyre trying to head in a certain direction. Obviously
they have that vision in their heads and thats what theyre trying to show right
now.” The 23-year-old Jamieson, Oaklands 17th-round draft pick out of Canisius
College in 2011, was batting .234 with 10 home runs, 49 RBIs and 25 stolen bases
in 118 games for Single-A Burlington. Jimmy Smith Womens Jersey .” Drogba, who
