Red Sox signed SS Stephen Drew to a one-year, $9.5 million contract.

The deal was agreed to earlier this month, but the announcement was delayed until after Christmas. Drew batted just .223/.309/.348 in his first season back from ankle surgery, but the Red Sox obviously feel better about the odds of a bounce-back than trusting rookie Jose Iglesias with the everyday job. With a solid lineup around him, he should make for a fine bounce-back candidate in fantasy leagues.
