The Red Sox placed shortstop Stephen Drew on the 15-day disabled list yesterday after he missed a week of action due to right hamstring tightness.

Drew suffered the injury running to second base on a double last Friday against the Blue Jays. While he has made progress over the past few days, he told Ian Browne of MLB.com that it just makes more sense “to let it heal up.” He’ll be eligible to return on July 14, which is the final day before the All-Star break.

After joining the Red Sox over the winter on a one-year, $9.5 million contract, Drew is batting .233/.313/.409 with five home runs and 31 RBI in 66 games this season. The hot-hitting Jose Iglesias has handled shortstop duties during his absence while Brandon Snyder has received most of the playing time at third base.

    Seriously, don’t rush back. Two guys making 1/20th your salary are outplaying you – imagine you’re J.D. and take a whole month.

      Agreed. Played well for a while, but whatever. Cost 9 mill to figure out that Iglesias just might be ready after all.

        - Because everyone foresaw Inglesias batting .400?

    A Drew on the DL?

    That’s unpossible.

    Ah, injured again. Just like Big Brother.
