Shortstop Stephen Drew is back with the Boston Red Sox after signing with the team for the rest of the season, according to multiple reports on Tuesday.
His prorated contract runs through the rest of the 2014 season and will play him approximately $10 million, CBSSports.com reported.
Drew has not played since the Red Sox won the World Series in October. During the offseason, he refused a qualifying offer of $14.1 million and was not picked up as a free agent because of the draft-pick compensation attached to another team signing him.
The 31-year-old batted .253 with 13 home runs and 67 RBIs last season.
The Red Sox (20-23) have used rookie Xander Bogaerts at short, but he could move to third base now that Drew is back.
Bogaerts played third during the playoffs last year. Will Middlebrooks took over at third but is batting just .197 and is on the disabled list with a broken finger.
Drew's signing leaves Kendrys Morales as the only unsigned free agent who received a qualifying offer after last season.
