Drew, who will be 32 on Opening Day, split the year between the Red Sox and Yankees in 2014. He put up a combined line of .162/.237/.299 with seven home runs in 300 plate appearances.
It was by far his worst big league season, though has just managed to hit .228/.305/.382 in his last four seasons with four teams.
