Red Sox | Stephen Drew close to rehab assignment?

The Boston Red Sox are "hopeful" that SS Stephen Drew (concussion) will begin a minor league rehab assignment by this weekend. He played in an extended spring training game on Tuesday, April 2.

Fantasy Tip: Drew is apparently scheduled to play in another extended spring game on Wednesday, April 3. If he continues to avoid symptoms completely, then Boston's hopes should be answered. Stay tuned. If Drew avoids additional health problems -- no sure thing, especially since he's already suffered this concussion -- he's a decent bet to provide good fantasy value, at least in AL-only and deep mixed leagues.
