Red Sox Sign Stephen Drew


According to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox have reached an agreement with free-agent shortstop Stephen Drew on a one-year deal:

Drew, 31, was rumored to possibly be waiting for the draft on June 5th so that he would no longer have the draft pick tied to him after rejecting a qualifying offer from Boston during the offseason.

However, since he played for the Red Sox last season the team will not have to give up a draft-pick to resign him.

The team had been rumored to be looking for an upgrade on the left side of their infield.
