J.D. Drew came into Red Sox camp a few days early of the rest of the position players, but it was to meet with the team's medical staff. Apparently he is still bothered by back stiffness, the same one that limited his playing time to 109 games in 2008.
Drew says he could play today with it, but this could be more trouble this upcoming season. Rocco Baldelli, Brad Wilkerson and Mark Kotsay are the current alternatives if Drew's back continues to act up. Here's more from ESPN.
