New York Yankees SS Stephen Drew projects as "hopefully our everyday second baseman," according to general manager Brian Cashman. The Yankees are banking on SS Didi Gregorius being their full-time starting shortstop in 2015. Drew hit just .162 in 271 at-bats between the Boston Red Sox and the Yankees last year. "Hopefully, he can put last year behind him and be the player he was before then," Cashman said. "He has a history of being a really good player prior to a season that didn't play out the way anybody expected." Drew starting at second base could block 2Bs Jose Pirela and Robert Refsnyder from playing time.
