Stephen Drew Back In Starting Lineup Today

Stephen Drew

Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew suffered an oblique injury exactly one week ago and then aggravated it during batting practice a few days later, but he?s clearly feeling much better.

Alex Speier, Red Sox beat writer, reports that Stephen Drew is back in the lineup today, replacing Xander Bogaerts:

The thought from the team is that missing the first two months of the season resulted in Drew's oblique injury.

Drew, 31, is 1-for-14 (.071) with five strikeouts since signing a prorated one-year, $14.1 million deal with Boston on May 20.
