AP source: Red Sox agree to deal with Stephen Drew

BOSTON — A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that shortstop Stephen Drew and the Boston Red Sox have agreed to a $9.5 million, one-year contract.

Drew will take a physical before the deal can be finalized, the person said Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement was not complete.

Drew hit .250 with five homers and 16 RBI in 39 games for the Oakland Athletics last season after being traded by Arizona on Aug. 20. In 40 games with the Diamondbacks, he hit .193 with two homers and 12 RBI. Drew, brother of former Boston outfielder J.D. Drew, had been with Arizona for his entire big-league career until the trade.
