PLAYERS: Stephen Drew
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
Boston Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew has been cleared by Major League Baseball to resume playing in games after passing concussion testing, according to Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe. MLB has cleared Red Sox SS Stephen Drew to begin playing in games. He has been out since March 7 with a concussion — Pete Abraham (@PeteAbe) April 2, 2013 Drew has been sidelined since March 7 due to a concussion and the symptoms that followed. He sustained the injury when he was hit in the head by a pitch during a spring training contest. Initially after suffering the HBP, Drew appeared to be unfazed. However, later in the night while he was reading he became dizzy and he reported blurred vision. At that point, the Red Sox shut him down. Drew has since been cleared to resume baseball-related activities, though he wasn’t given the OK to resume playing in actual games until recently. Now that he’s able to play, Drew will likely require some time in extended spring training or on minor league rehab assignment before joining the Red Sox. While Drew continues to recover, Boston will use Jose Iglesias as their regular shortstop. The Red Sox signed Drew to a one-year, $9.5 million contract this offseason.
