Yanks trade for Drew

Posted: Updated:
 BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Red Sox have obtained third baseman Kelly Johnson from the New York Yankees for shortstop Stephen Drew.

Drew hit .253 for the World Series champion Red Sox last year but did not accept a $14.1 million qualifying offer. He re-signed with Boston on May 22 and has hit .176 with four homers and 11 RBIs in 39 games.

He will likely play second base for New York.

Johnson is hitting .219 with six homers and 22 RBIs in 77 games and is on the disabled list.

Boston also sent cash to New York.

It was another move in a busy day in which the last-place Red Sox traded left-hander Jon Lester and outfielder Jonny Gomes to the Oakland Athletics, right-hander John Lackey to the St. Louis Cardinals and left-handed reliever Andrew Miller to the Baltimore Orioles.
