From MLB.com’s Evan Drellich comes word that Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew is out of the starting lineup again on Sunday against the Twins due to lingering discomfort in his lower back.

Pedro Ciriaco will get the start in his place.

Drew also sat out of Saturday’s game, but he is not believed to be dealing with a serious injury.

The 30-year-old is batting .321/.403/.566 with three home runs, four doubles and 12 RBI in 15 games this month. He signed a one-year, $9.5 million free agent contract with Boston this past offseason.

    Setting his serious ankle injury aside, S Drew’s whole career has been plagued by nagging injuries. Lucky to get 5 days a week out of him as everything just seems to linger.

      At least he’s tougher than his brother.

      Slightly.

    Just like big brother, D.L. Drew.

    Is the whole Drew family made of Styrofoam? These guys stay injured and collect their checks
