The Boston Red Sox are interested in acquired shortstop Stephen Drew, according to a report by WEEI.com.

The Boston Red Sox are interested in acquiring free agent short stop Stephen Drew, according to a report by Rob Bradford of WEEI.com on Wednesday afternoon.

Citing an industry source, the report states that the Red Sox are one of several teams interested in Drew. In addition to Boston, the Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics have been named as potential suitors of the 29-year-old infielder.

Drew spent the remainder of the 2012 season with Oakland after being traded in August by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Following the season, Drew did not allow the Athletics to pick up his $10-million mutual option and it is believed that he is seeking a multi-year deal with double-digit financial figures.

According to a report by Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, Drew's agent Scott Boras has already discussed the possibility of a five-year contract with Detroit. However, it is not believed that he will receive that kind of offer.
