Veteran Yankees clear waivers

|(8/5/14) The Yankees placed infielders Martin Prado and Stephen Drew, as well as outfielder Brett Gardner on waivers, and all three have cleared, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman Tuesday.
All three are now eligible to be traded during the month of August, though there is no indication the team is looking to move any of them.
Short porch could fuel a rise for Stephen Drew
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/1/14) The Red Sox waited two months and paid a pretty hefty sum to get 131 at-bats and a .583 OPS out of Stephen Drew this season. They were able to get out from under his deal by shipping him off to the Yankees just before the deadline, and now Drew will try to re-establish himself as a contributor as the Yankees everyday second baseman.
Drew has been a major disappointment this season, though there are reasons to believe he might be able to turn things around following this trade. First and foremost, when looking at Drew, we have to acknowledge that he has been the victim of some absolutely rotten luck, overall. He is hitting just .176 overall, though that comes paired with an abysmal .216 BABIP; that number was .320 a year ago, and .304 for his career.
Even with that bad luck on his side, Drew has been much better recently, hitting .215 but with four home runs and 11 walks over his last 19 starts, a span of 28 games. And he has been doing that in a park that is less forgiving for left-handed batters than his new home stadium.
Drew is never going to provide much in the batting average category, but he is certainly better than the sub-Mendoza level he has managed so far. A change of scenery could be just what Drew needs to spark his bat, and he might be worth a look in deeper Fantasy leagues if you need middle-infield help.
Yankees trade for Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/31/14) The Red Sox traded shortstop Stephen Drew to the Yankees Thursday, according to ESPN. Drew didn't make his season debut until early June and is batting just .165 in 38 games.
|Stephen Drew's 442 at-bats, six steals, 29 doubles, and 13 home runs in 2013 were the best numbers he's posted since 2010. And his 67 RBI tied a career high. Drew proved effective enough for the Red Sox to trade shortstop prospect Julio Iglesias in a deadline deal for Jake Peavy. There's potential here for a .270 average and 15-20 home runs, with 30 doubles. Unfortunately, there's also significant injury concern with Drew, and the average and homer potential could just as easily top out at .260 and 12, respectively. Drew is on the cusp of selection in shallower standard points leagues, but is better suited as a bench/MI selection in Roto leagues.
