Yankees' Cashman: Stephen Drew the 'smart play' at second
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/29/15) Stephen Drew has been outhit by two Yankees prospects this spring, but GM Brian Cashman said the veteran was still the "smart play" at second base.
Rob Refsnyder is hitting .343 with five doubles. Jose Pirela is hitting .370.
Meanwhile, a hot stretch over the weekend brought Drew to .243.
"I know there’s a lot of dialogue wrapped around Refsnyder and Pirela," Cashman said, per the Journal News. "But I think also that those guys have shown they still have work to do on the defensive side still. ... The bats are impressive, but you’ve seen the defensive stuff they’ve shown us in short sample sizes as well. ... So right now I’m pretty comfortable that Drew signing was the smart play for us on the front end."
Refsnyder has made five errors and Pirela two.
Drew had a three hit game on Friday, homered on Saturday and doubled on Sunday.
"He’s looked really good at the plate," Cashman said. "He’s looked so much better than last year the last week to 10 days. That’s encouraging. I know it’s got to be building his confidence and having memories of what he was prior to last year, because that’s certainly what’s playing around in my head. I feel much better about the situation right now."
Yankees' Stephen Drew starts to emerge from slump
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Yankees infielder Stephen Drew went three for three on Friday, which is a significant bright spot in what's been a tough spring.
Prior to Friday's game, Drew only had six hits all spring. The 3-for-3 game boosted his average from .167 to .231.
"He's swung the bat better the last two weeks," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said, per MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "The one thing you want is you want a lineup that there's pressure on the pitcher of the opposing team the entire time, and I feel that we have that type of lineup that we can do that, where so much pressure doesn't fall on a couple of guys."

Yankees' Stephen Drew still learning in transition to second base
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/4/15) Yankees second baseman Stephen Drew knew the switch from playing shortstop to second base wasn't going to be easy. Drew committed an error on the very first ball hit to him this spring.
"Coming over last year, what I was learning was that angle. Just totally different," Drew said. "The ball comes off the bat a little different on guys. That's definitely going to be something that I'm learning through this whole thing. That won't go away after I learn it. I'm going to work all through Spring Training to get those angles knocked out."
Drew is expecting to take reps exclusively at second throughout spring training, allowing Did Gregorius and Brendan Ryan to get their chances at shortstop.
