Description: Yankees infielder Stephen Drew had a huge game Friday against the Angels.
Insight: He went 2-for-4 with two homers and three RBI. Drew, however, is not a relevant option with a .173 BA, along with seven homers and 19 RBI.
 
4/13/2015 11:00:00 PM
Description: Yankees infielder Stephen Drew played the role of hero Monday night against Baltimore.

Description: Yankees manager Joe Girardi has confirmed that Stephen Drew is expected to be the everyday second baseman.
Insight: It what we thought when he was signed, but it's nice to get confirmation. Of course. he'll have to hit better than the .162 he posted in 2014 if he wants to keep the job.
 
1/6/2015 10:58:00 PM
Description: The Yankees resigned shortstop Stephen Drew to a one-year, $5 million contract according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.
Insight: Including incentives, the deal is worth between $6-7 million. Drew only hit .150/.219/.271 last season, but he gives the Yankees depth at middle infield. He shouldn't really be fantasy relevant.

Description: Yankees second baseman Stephen Drew is 7-for-14 with a 1.357 OPS versus Royals right-hander James Shields.

8/20/2014 10:39:00 PM
Description: Yankees second baseman Stephen Drew went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk Wednesday against Houston.
Insight: Don't get too excited. Drew has great career numbers against Scott Feldman, Wednesday's starter. Otherwise, he's been even worse with the Yankees than he was with the Red Sox.

Description: Yankees second baseman Stephen Drew is 6-for-13 (.462) versus Baltimore starter Bud Norris.

Description: Yankees second baseman Stephen Drew is not in Tuesday's starting lineup.
Insight: He's hit ..214 in the four games with the Yankees after batting .176 in Boston. Brendan Ryan will make the start and he has no fantasy value as career .236 hitter with a .615 OPS.

Description: Yankees will start Stephen Drew at second base on Friday night versus hos old club, Boston.
Insight: He's hit .176 with four home runs and a .583 OPS in 131 at-bats, so fantasy owners may still want to stay away.
 
Cold7/31/2014 5:28:00 PM
Description: The Yankees have picked up Stephen Drew from the Boston Red Sox for Kelly Johnson.
Insight: It was the first trade between the Yankees and Red Sox since 1997. Drew has never played any position other than shortstop, but he's going to start at second base for New York. Learning a new position on the fly won't help him turn around his struggles at the plate. He's hit .176 with four home runs and a .583 OPS in 131 at-bats.
