by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Yankees shortstop Stephen Drew cranked a pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh inning in Monday's 6-5 win over the Orioles.

"I just got in a good situation. Guys were up there battling all night," Drew said, per MLB.com. "I got a 3-1 count in a good situation and tried not to do too much. I put a good swing on it, and it worked out for the best."

Drew came up for Brett Gardner in the seventh and ripped a 3-1 pitch from Tommy Hunter to center field for the home run, scoring Chris Young, John Ryan Murphy and Jacoby Ellsbury. Drew is now hitting .190 in 21 at-bats this season.

Drew was part of New York's early onslaught in the first inning, cracking a 1-0 pitch from Clay Buchholz to right field for a solo home run, following up a two-run shot by Chase Headley. Drew, who also had one walk, pushed his average to .150 on 20 at-bats this season.


Yankees' Alex Rodriguez draws start at first base Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Yankees infielder Alex Rodriguez is making his first start of the season at first base Saturday against the Red Sox.

The Yankees are mixing up the lineup for the day game after Friday's 19-inning marathon, with Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann, Mark Teixeira and Stephen Drew all out of the lineup Saturday.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

3. Carlos Beltran, RF

5. Brian McCann, C

Yankees' Stephen Drew could see time at SS on Thursday

Yankees' Cashman: Stephen Drew the 'smart play' at second


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) 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
(3/27/2015) 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' Girardi names Stephen Drew starting second baseman


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) As expected, Yankees manager Joe Girardi named Stephen Drew the team's starting second baseman Tuesday, reports NJ.com.

Drew is attempting to transition from shortstop to second base. In 2014, he hit .162 with seven home runs and 26 RBI.


Yankees' Stephen Drew still learning in transition to second base


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) 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.

Yankees' Steinbrenner: 'We're not going to be afraid to spend money'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) Yankees principal owner Hal Steinbrenner indicated Wednesday more offseason moves for New York could be coming, despite general manager Brian Cashman being active this offseason, according to MLB.com. The Yankees have already re-signed third baseman Chase Headley and infielder Stephen Drew, signed reliever Andrew Miller and traded for shortstop Didi Gregorius.

"It's not over until it's over. We still have a full month before spring training," Steinbrenner said. "We're always going to continue to improve. I'm not putting a cap on it. We've certainly filled some holes that we had. We'll keep going for the next few weeks."

Steinbrenner said he wants to get New York back to the postseason while trying to keep the the payroll in the same range, but left the door open to perhaps target one of the top free-agent players still available. Starting pitchers Max Scherzer and James Shields are two of the top names still on the free-agent market.

"[But] having said that, we're still the New York Yankees, all you guys know that," Steinbrenner said. "We know what the fans expect. We know what the town expects. We're not going to be afraid to spend money."

Veteran Yankees clear waivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) 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.

Short porch could fuel a rise for Stephen Drew


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) 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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) 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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew went 1 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 7-3 loss to the Blue Jays Tuesday.

It was Drew's second conseuctive game with a home run and the second time this month he's delivered home runs in back-to-back games. He's 8 for 21 in his last six games to give himself a .178/.254/.346 line with four home runs and 11 RBI in 107 at-bats.


Stephen Drew slugs third home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew went 2 for 4 with a walk, a home run and four RBI in his team's 14-1 win over the Blue Jays Monday.

Drew has struggled offensively since joining the Red Sox in May, but he's flashed a glimmer of hope over the last five games, going 7 for 17 with three extra-base hits. Even with the uptick, the shortstop has still hit just .175/.254/.320 with three home runs and nine RBI in 103 at-bats.
