Stephen Drew cleared to play in games after concussion

Stephen Drew is on the seven-day concussion disabled list, but Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that MLB has cleared the Red Sox shortstop to play in games.

Drew has been out since a pitch to the helmet left him with a concussion on March 7, experiencing post-concussion symptoms that included dizziness, so he’ll likely need some time at extended spring training before potentially joining the Red Sox’s lineup.

Jose Iglesias is filling in at shortstop for Drew, who signed with the Red Sox on a one-year, $9.5 million contract this offseason.
