Stephen Drew hit just .223/.309/.348 in 327 plate appearances this past season between the D’Backs and A’s. But the 29-year-old free agent is still going to attract a pretty decent market this offseason.
According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, the Tigers, Yankees and Red Sox are among the teams that have already expressed interest in Drew. And the Cardinals and Rays could eventually join the fray.
The Tigers are reportedly dangling Jhonny Peralta and would presumably make Drew their new starting shortstop if they can find a trade partner. In Boston, Drew could serve as a stopgap for Jose Iglesias.
The Yankees are viewing Drew more as a super sub, which might not be of interest to him.
Drew is a .265/.328/.433 career hitter. He slugged 21 home runs in 2008 for the Snakes.
