Mets GM: Stephen Drew Signing Is 'Unlikely'

Stephen Drew's chances of landing a multi-year contract dwindled even more on Thursday, as Mets General manager Sandy Alderson said signing the free-agent was "unlikely". Said Alderson, "I said it was unlikely that we would sign another major free agent. I think that’s still the case." So, with Xander Bogaerts taking ground balls exclusively at short, Drew's landing spots are few and far between. Perhaps the Bronx, or perhaps back at Fenway on a reduced one-year contract—in both dollars and playing time.
