Red Sox Remain Interested In Stephen Drew

The Red Sox have interest in signing Stephen Drew to help improve the team's infield depth, sources tell ESPN.com's Jayson Stark (via Twitter). The former Athletics and Diamondbacks shortstop is viewed as a stopgap for Boston as Drew would be able to give players like Jose Iglesias and Xander Bogaerts more time to develop by serving as the starter. 

Drew's .223/.309/.348 line in 327 PAs with Arizona and Oakland this season led to the A's not picking up their end of a mutual option worth $10MM. Thea 29-year-old former FSU star may benefit from a full season of clean health as he returned to baseball in July after a severe ankle injury left him unable to play.
