Stephen Drew’s Minors Stint Will Ensure He’s Major League Ready (Video)

Boston Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew was practicing hard while he remained unsigned this season, but that doesn’t mean that the Sox shouldn’t cover all of their bases.

Drew was available on an emergency basis Thursday but was designated for assignment to the Single-A Greenville Drive on Friday for their game against the Augusta GreenJackets in Augusta, Ga.

The Sox hope for Drew to get around 25 at-bats in the minors before he returns to the team.

Check out what WEEI’s Rob Bradford had to say about Drew’s minor league assignment in the video above.
