Stephen Drew swats sixth home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Yankees infielder Stephen Drew went 1 for 5 with a solo home run in his team's 8-1 win over the Royals Monday.

Drew gave his team a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning, and the score remained that way until the offense exploded in the seventh. He has hit .173/.250/.330 with six home runs and 21 RBI in 191 at-bats.


Stephen Drew belts a home run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Yankees shortstop Stephen Drew belted his fifth home run Wedneday against the Astros. 

Drew struck in the fourth inning. With the bases empty, Drew took an 86 mph cutter out to right center for the solo shot. He also walked during the contest. Drew finished 1 for 3, with one run scored and one RBI.


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.  

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
(8/1/2014) 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.

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.

Red Sox purge two lefty hitters from Wednesday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Drew has just three hits in his last 39 at-bats and has one hit in 14 at-bats against lefties this season. Bradley has actually hit better against left-handed pitchers this season with a mark of .224, which betters his overall average of .208.


Stephen Drew confident in his abilities


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew isn't worried about his struggles to open the season, according to the Boston Herald

Drew has hit .143 through 42 at-bats, but he's not concerned about continuing over the course of the season. "At the end of the year I'm going to be where I need to be," Drew said. "I've been in this game too long and trust myself too much. I know the talent is there."

Drew got a late start to the season after holding out for a multi-year deal this offseason. He eventually re-signed with the Red Sox in late May. Despite the late start, Drew was able to workout and stay in game shape at a training facility once the season started. 

"I'm not going to panic," Drew added. "I know myself. I've been in this game too long. "It's going to definitely turn around."

Stephen Drew feeling good after debut


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew went 0 for 2 with a walk in his 2014 debut against the Indians on Monday, but he handled everything that came his way in the field, reports MLB.com. 

"It felt good," he said. "It's nothing new when you've got the same guys on the team, which really benefits all of us in that aspect. It felt good to get back out there with the guys and really good defensive-wise. I felt normal."

Drew said he still needs to make adjustments at the plate after going 5 for 23 in the minors before being activated.

"It's an adjustment just from playing in Triple-A and doing some games down there," he said. "Overall, I felt good, just getting back into things and not really playing catch-up as much as I prepare for the year. It's just game speed and seeing pitches and getting [at-bats]."
