I say 2 years, max, and... 22, 24, something like that.
But they have Bogaerts on-hand, so I'm not sure why they'd want to bring Drew back.
Because Middlebrooks may not be a Major League caliber player, so they may need Xander to play third.
I'd think the Red Sox would prefer Bogaerts to play SS and maybe platoon Drew and Middlebrooks. Playing Bogaerts at 3B seems a waste.
If he's healthy, he's a 110 OPS+ averageish shortstop and baserunner worth around 3 WAR
In the NL, the Pirates and Reds both make a ton of sense but I don't know where they are in their payroll.
If I had to guess where this shakes out, I would say 2/24 with a vesting option for the third year at the same salary based on PAs.
They don't need three years of Stephen Drew.
