News: Drew is in the lineup Friday, playing second base and batting eighth for the Yankees, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. Impact: Drew will face his former team, the Red Sox, in his Yankees debut. He will likely see a majority of the starts at second going forward with Brian Roberts designated for assignment, but Martin Prado and Brendan Ryan are also available to fill in if needed.(RotoWire, )

News: The Red Sox traded Drew to the Yankees on Thursday for Kelly Johnson, ESPN's Buster Olney reports. Impact: Boston sends Drew to New York in its fourth trade of the day, a trade which amounts to little more than a housekeeping move to clear some money off the books. Drew has posted just a .176/.255/.328 batting line in 39 games with the Red Sox this season, but he figures to supplant Brian Roberts at second base for the Yankees.(RotoWire, )

News: The Boston Red Sox have obtained third baseman Kelly Johnson from the New York Yankees for Drew. Impact: Drew hit .253 for the World Series champion Red Sox last year but did not accept a $14.1 million qualifying offer. He re-signed with Boston on May 22 and has hit .176 with four homers and 11 RBIs in 39 games. He will likely play second base for New York.(STATS, 4:43pm)

News: Drew is not in the lineup Friday, the Boston Globe's Pete Abraham reports. Impact: Brock Holt will man shortstop, as Drew gets a day off against a lefty (David Price). He has had a nice week so far at the dish, hitting home runs in back-to-back games Monday and Tuesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Drew homered and knocked in two runs in Tuesday night's loss to Toronto. It was his second straight game with a homer. Impact: Drew has started to heat up, something that began in Houston during the final series before the All-Star break and has carried forth. He's 8-for-21 with four extra-base hits, six RBI and seven runs scored in the past six games. The stretch has raised his average from .128 to .178. For those who have been frightened away by Drew's poor hitting since signing with Boston in June, he's been a better hitter in the second half of seasons throughout his career.(RotoWire, )

News: Drew went 2 for 4 with a homer and four RBIs in Monday's 14-1 win at Toronto. Impact: While Drew is 7 for his last 17, he's still hitting just .175 since joining the Red Sox on June 2.(STATS, 3:19pm)
Mon. July 21, 2014
News: Drew had perhaps his best offensive game of the season Monday, going 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI. Impact: Drew has struggled mightily this season after getting off to a late start, hitting a paltry .151 at the All-Star break. Things have been looking up for the shortstop lately however, as Drew has seven hits in his last five games. He had 11 hits in the 26 games he'd played this season before this stretch.(RotoWire, )
July 20, 2014
News: Drew did not play in Saturday's win over Kansas City. Impact: With Shane Victorino returning to the lineup and playing right field, manager John Farrell moved Brock Holt from right to shortstop. There will be a lineup shuffle going on to accommodate Victorino's return, which means a less-than-everyday role for Drew.(RotoWire, )
