Red Sox rumors: Stephen Drew still interests Boston Red Sox for 2014 MLB season?

Red Sox rumors still suggest the team wants Stephen Drew back. The free agent shortstop hasn't appeared in Boston Red Sox rumors for a little while, but he was linked to the team again on Wednesday (Dec. 18). Jon Heyman from CBS Sports states that the team is still interested in bringing him back under a new contract. That may seem obvious, though, as the team did extend him a qualifying offer at the conclusion of the 2013 MLB season.

Last season, Drew earned $9.5 million during his only season with the team. It was a one-year deal that he signed after leaving the Oakland Athletics. Playing in 124 games for the team, he posted a .253 batting average to go with 50 extra base hits and 57 runs scored. He struggled quite a bit in the postseason, though, hitting just .050 in the ALCS and .158 in the World Series. Now the shortstop could be looking for a long-term contract to financially set himself up for years to come.

It hasn't seemed like a very active offseason for Stephen Drew when it comes to teams showing interest. His agent is Scott Boras, so that likely makes him expensive to sign for any franchise, with the possibility of the New York Mets stepping up. It's unclear how much that team would want to invest in him with the mixed results he has put up the last two seasons. With Boston Red Sox rumors starting up again, it's certainly possible that it could get his name out there again.

At the moment, the Red Sox have Xander Bogaerts penciled in as the starting shortstop in 2014 after having a successful postseason.
