Free agent SS Stephen Drew is ‘perfectly healthy,’ according to a person familiar with the situation (Bradford, Jan. 7).
Drew’s market may be depressed due concerns about his medical report, a team official recently said (Martino, Jan. 7).
The Mets and Red Sox have been most connected to Drew in reports since the Winter Meetings. However, the Mets are reluctant to lock in to Drew beyond 2014 (Cerrone, Jan. 6).
Today, in a post for FanGraphs.com, Jeff Sullivan does a nice job explaining Drew’s market, writing:
In a poll on MetsBlog on Jan. 6, 2014, 51 percent — of more than 8,000 voters — said they would give Drew a two-year deal, with only four percent willing to go to a three-year contract.
