– Shorts stop Stephen Drew has been drawing interest from the Tigers, Red Sox and Yankees according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports. The Yankees' interest in Drew though, isn't to replace Jeter, but to be a part-time player “I'm not looking to replace Derek Jeter,” General Manager Brian Cashman said. “He'll be playing every day for the whole year.”
– Veteran slugger Lance Barkman hasn't decided whether he'll retire or not, and in the meantime, the Red Sox, Phillies, Rays and Astros have been kicking the tires on him writes Joseph Duarte of the Houston Chronicle. “I'm waiting to be blown away by an offer,” Berkman said. “If somebody comes in and makes a deal that I can't refuse, then I have to take it and go forward. That may not happen — and if it doesn't, I'm fine.” He also said that he'd like to sign a two-year deal.
