The A’s and Twins have emerged as possible landing spots for free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Martino, Jan. 27), who could be willing to play multiple positions, according to his agent Scott Boras (Gammons, Jan. 15).
The Mets continue to see Drew as worth only a one-year deal (Martino, Jan. 27). Similarly, Red Sox are still considering re-signing Drew, but prefer to give him just a one or two-year deal (Martino, Jan. 27).
Drew has been reportedly seeking a three- or four-year contract worth as much as $12 million a season.
The Yankees are unlikely to pursue Drew, after spending $155 million on Masahiro Tanaka, according to league sources (Martino, Jan. 27).
