Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew suffered an oblique injury exactly one week ago and then aggravated it during batting practice a few days later. But he’s clearly feeling much better …

The thought is that missing the first two months of the season resulted in the oblique injury. Drew is 1-for-14 (.071) with five strikeouts since signing a prorated one-year, $14.1 million deal with Boston on May 20.
