Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters – including Jason Mastrodonato of MLB.com – that the team will activate shortstop Stephen Drew from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, adding that the veteran will start tomorrow’s contest against the New York Yankees. Drew has been on the DL since June 28 with right hamstring tightness. It was unfortunate timing for Drew and the Red Sox, as just prior to suffering the ailment he was heating up at the plate. In his four games before the injury, Drew collected five extra-base hits over four games. On the season, the 30-year-old has hit .233/.313/.409 with 14 doubles, six triples and five home runs. He joined the Red Sox this offseason on a one-year contract, so he’ll be playing the second half of the season with an eye toward free agency. Beyond Drew, the Red Sox are working with an inexperienced left side of the infield. Will Middlebrooks has struggled in his second season, while Jose Iglesias has developed as a hitter, offering more consistent production at the plate. Boston will count on Drew to be a stabilizing, veteran presence. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
