Drew Set To Return To Lineup On Wednesday

Avoiding a PR fiasco on Opening Day at Fenway, the Red Sox have delayed Stephen Drew's entry into the starting lineup until the second home game on Wednesday. Given the support shown for Jose Iglesias and his strong start to the season, fan reaction on Monday to his 'riding the pine' would have been problematic. Drew will play full games Sunday and Monday at Portland and then join the team.
