Yankees land infielders Stephen Drew, Martin Prado at Deadline

Welcome to succeeding Derek Jeter, Stephen Drew. Hope you survive the experience!

With the Red Sox taking part in a full-scale roster makeover on Thursday, the Yankees took the opportunity to get in on the action and upgrade their infield, completing their first trade with Boston since 1997.

Stephen Drew will suit up in Fenway’s visitors’ clubhouse when the American League East rivals meet on Friday evening, having been acquired by the Yankees in exchange for infielder Kelly Johnson.

The Yankees weren’t done bolstering their infield there, however. Veteran utility man Martin Prado is also headed to the Bronx, with the Yankees sending the D-backs catching prospect Peter O’Brien—ranked No. 9 among Yanks prospects by MLB.com before the deal—and a player to be named or cash…

Drew has played only shortstop during his nine-year Major League career, but that is expected to change with Derek Jeter installed at the position for his final big league season; Drew could take over at second base for Brian Roberts…

The Yankees announced a smaller addition in the hours leading up to Thursday’s 4 p.m. ET non-waiver Trade Deadline, claiming right-hander Esmil Rogers off waivers from the Blue Jays…

The Yankees unconditionally released infielder Scott Sizemore, who was with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
