Did Stephen Drew Ever Look Like a Major-League Hitter? | FanGraphs Baseball

Last year Drew was the first player who ever missed spring training and a couple of months at the start of a season. Except for all the players who were hurt at the start of other seasons.

Stephen Drew, Yankees finalizing deal that could pay him $6M to $7M - CBSSports.com

Like the Yankees, I suppose, I expect a bounce-back year.from Drew. He’s no superstar, but he’s another nice solid pickup for the Yankees this off-season.

How Royals’ magical roster nearly got a July shakeup | New York Post

You have to love the brass on Boras. How much more money is he willing to cost Stephen Drew, though?

A few teams involved with Drew say his asking price of $9 million-$10 million for 2015 is not in their price range. Drew’s agent, Scott Boras, has emphasized the career .764 OPS the lefty swinger took into last season as representative of his client and not the .536 he posted in a disjointed 2014 campaign.
But executives from a few of the interested clubs have expressed concern that 2014 was so bad there has to be worry, with Drew turning 32 in March, that he has entered a steep decline phase. As one said: “Fine, you want to say June and July [last year] were spring training for him, well, how about August or September? There was never a time in which he looked like a major league hitter. The ball didn’t come off his bat well, there was zero consistency. Nothing.”
