NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- According to an industry source, the Red Sox continue to be one of a group of teams interested in shortstop Stephen Drew.
Drew, 29, finished last season with the A's after an August trade from the Diamondbacks. He hit .250/.326/.382 with five home runs, 16 RBIs and 18 walks in 29 games for the A's, after hitting .193/.290/.311 with two home runs, 12 RBIs and 19 walks in 40 games with Arizona. Oakland declined a mutual $10 million option, making him a free agent, but reportedly still has interest in him.
In seven career seasons, Drew is hitting ..265/.328/.433 with 77 home runs, 349 RBIs and 293 walks in 812 games.
According to a report from San Francisco Chronicle  writer Susan Slusser, Drew's agent, Scott Boras, broached the possibility of a five-year contract during discussions with the Tigers, but that appears unlikely. Slusser also tweeted  that Boras is scheduled to meet with the A's about Drew on Wednesday or Thursday.
There also is speculation that the Yankees, who have holes on the left side of their infield due to injuries to Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez, could be interested.
