Drew leaves game with midsection tightness
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- D-backs shortstop Stephen Drew was removed after the first inning Wednesday due to "midsection tightness."

"Just a little discomfort in the abs section, the midsection," Drew said. "It's kind of bothered me today, so [it is] just kind of precautionary. I came out to get it checked out. Everything seems to be OK, so it's just day by day."

Drew said he believes he suffered the injury during Tuesday night's game, because he woke up Wednesday feeling a little discomfort.

"I thought it would go away by the time I got loose," Drew said. "It's just kind of nagging me."

Drew was not scheduled to play Thursday against the Dodgers even before the injury, but said he was "hopeful" about playing Friday.
