Boston Red Sox SS Stephen Drew did not start in the second game of a doubleheader Sunday, April 21, against the Kansas City Royals. He was hitless in four at-bats with three strikeouts in the first game, dropping his average to just .100. He has just two hits over his past 21 at-bats in the past six games.

Boston Red Sox SS Jose Iglesias is likely to be sent down to Triple-A Pawtucket when SS Stephen Drew (concussion) is activated from the disabled list Wednesday, April 10. However, Iglesias proved that he is worthy of filling in at shortstop with his play to open the season, and the coaching staff was impressed. Iglesias has one minor league option remaining.
Fantasy Tip: Iglesias is only worth hanging onto in deep AL-only leagues, but if Drew has any kind of setback and is sidelined again, expect Iglesias to be called upon again.

Boston Red Sox SS Stephen Drew (concussion) is expected to play in rehab games for Double-A Portland Sunday, April 7, and Monday, April 8, before rejoining the parent club in time for their game against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, April 10. The Red Sox have an off day Tuesday, April 9.

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox SS Stephen Drew (concussion) was able to play seven innings in a minor-league rehab game Friday, April 5, for Double-A Portland. He went 1-for-3 with a double and a sacrifice fly.
Fri, 05 Apr 2013 16:09:14 -0700
Boston Red Sox SS Stephen Drew (concussion) will play seven innings for Double-A Portland Friday, April 5, and is on track to rejoin the team Monday, April 8.
Fantasy Tip: Concussions can be very tricky to return from, just ask Justin Morneau. The Red Sox may choose to be cautious and give Drew plenty of time off upon his initial return, but from the looks of things now, he's headed in the right direction.
Wed, 03 Apr 2013 14:20:36 -0700
Boston Red Sox SS Stephen Drew (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Portland Thursday, April 3, and the team is planning for him to play four games with Portland.
Wed, 03 Apr 2013 10:42:26 -0700
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.

Boston Red Sox SS Stephen Drew (concussion) is eligible to return from the seven-day disabled list Wednesday, April 10, and he'll have his starting job back when he's ready. SS Jose Iglesias will fill in until then.
Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a surprise. Iglesias is just a fill-in until Drew returns, and Boston will probably send him to the minors when Drew is ready so that he can work on his offense.
