Red Sox Rumors: Boston Interested in Stephen Drew

The Boston Red Sox have “some interest” in free agent shortstop Stephen Drew, according to Jayson Stark of ESPN.

Stark notes that the Red Sox interest in Drew is as a one-year stopgap to allow Jose Iglesias and Xander Bogaerts more time to develop.

While he struggled once being activated from the disabled list by the Arizona Diamondbacks last season, Drew played better after being acquired by the Oakland Athletics. The 29-year-old hit .250/.326/.382 with five doubles and five home runs in 152 at-bats for the A’s last season.

Once considered one of the top prospects in the game, Drew hasn’t developed into the type of hitter some expected. Still, he has maintained a line of .265/.328/.433 over seven seasons in the major league level.
