Stephen Drew goes 0-for-3 in rehab game
|04.04.13 at 8:27 pm ET|
Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew, in the first game of a minor league rehab assignment that is expected to last four games, went 0-for-3 with a groundout to second, a line out to short and a strikeout looking in three trips to the plate for the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs. Drew played in the field for five innings on Thursday, following games in which he played three and then four innings in extended spring training on Tuesday and Wednesday.
A rehab assignment for a player coming off the seven-day concussion DL can last up to five games, though the Sox have sketched out a four-game progression for Drew, so long as that proves manageable. When deemed ready to play, the Sox will activate him and insert him into the lineup as the everyday shortstop, replacing Jose Iglesias.
