Stephen Drew Signs One-Year Deal With Yanks

MLB.com reported on Tuesday night, that the New York Yankees and Stephen Drew have agreed to a one-year deal. The deal is reported to be worth approximately $5 million dollars, plus incentives.

The veteran Drew rejected a deal with the Boston Red Sox during the 2013 off-season, then missed all of Spring Training did not sign with a club until the Red Sox inked him to a free agent contract on May 21, 2014. He played in only 39 games, batting .176, with four home runs and 11 RBI’s, before joining the Yankees in a trade with the Red Sox that sent Kelly Johnson to Boston. Down the stretch the 31-year old infielder played 46 games with the Bombers, batting .150, with three home runs and 15 RBI’s.

Drew’s last full season came in 2013 with the Red Sox as he batted .253, with 13 home runs and 67 RBI’s.

With the Yankees bringing Didi Gregorius over to man the shortstop position, Drew looks to be the Bombers everyday second baseman.
