Red Sox, Drew agree on deal
The deal, which is worth $9.5 million, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, will give the Red Sox time to develop two younger shortstops, Jose Iglesias and Xander Bogaerts.
The A's, after losing Drew, remain without a shortstop. They wanted to re-sign Drew after they declined their end of his $10 million mutual option at the end of the season, paying him a $1.35 million buyout instead.
The top remaining shortstop on the free-agent market is Hiroyuki Nakajima, who has spent his entire career in Japan.
