BOSTON (AP) - Stephen Drew is moving to Boston to restart what once looked like a promising career.

The former first-round draft pick of the Arizona Diamondbacks was derailed by a serious ankle injury in 2011. He was traded last season to Oakland after returning from the injury and agreed to $9.5-million, one-year contract to pay with the Red Sox in 2013.

His older brother, J.D., played five seasons with the Red Sox and earned a World Series title with Boston in 2007.

That year, as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Stephen Drew was playing his first full season in the majors and just missed facing his brother in the World Series when the Colorado Rockies swept his team for the National League title before losing to the Red Sox.
