Yankees still interested in Stephen Drew for second base job


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2015) While the Yankees are content having Jose Pirela and Robert Refsnyder battle for the second base job in the spring, but CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports the team is still interested in bringing back Stephen Drew to fill the role.

In 2014, Drew hit .237 with seven home runs and 27 RBI for the Red Sox and Yankees. Along with considering Drew, the team will also explore other free agent and trade options.


Yankees brass praises rookie second basemen


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has indicated that rookies Robert Refsnyder and Jose Pirela might have the inside track on the starting second base job in 2015.

Free agents such as Stephen Drew and Asdrubal Cabrera could be more palatable options in teaming up with inexperienced shortstop Didi Gregorius as a double play combination. But Cashman is certainly open to starting the year with Refsnyder or Pirela.

Cashman is high on Refsnyder, who hit .318 with 14 home runs at the Double-A and Triple-A levels last season, though he admits he hasn't seen much of him. "I know that in half a year he had nine errors in Double-A and in the seocnd half, in Triple-A, he had only three," Cashman told NJ.com. "So there's obviously a lot of improvement there. ... Very excited about his bat and his ability to get on base and do some things."

Meanwhile, Joe Girardi has spoken highly of Pirela, who batted .333 in 24 at-bats for the Yankees after his September promotion.

"He made every type of play: a slow roller, a ball to hisright, a ball to his left, a turn-and-throw play and a tag play at second," Girardi said.
