Stephen Drew To Sign with New York
Stephen Drew has agreed to play baseball in New York in 2015 — with the Yankees.
Drew will get a guarantee of $5M for the season, and can earn another $1.5M in incentives.
According to people with knowledge of the situation, the Mets would have considered trying out Drew during spring training had he offered to pay them $3.5M.
With Drew off the board, the only other free-agent shortstop with Major League experience is Everth Cabrera.
Check that — it appears that Omar Quintanilla is still available.
If nothing else, we can put a quick end to the Stephen Drew – to – Mets rumors. (Exhale.)
