Red Sox, Yankees swap Drew, Johnson

Stephen Drew and Kelly Johnson are trading places. The Red Sox and Yankees — making their first trade together since 1997 — exchanged infielders shortly before the 4 p.m. ET Trade Deadline, MLB.com confirmed.

Drew has hit only .176/.255/.328 since re-signing with the Red Sox in May, while Johnson is on the disabled list with a strained left groin. Johnson, who was batting .219 with a .304 on-base percentage and .373 slugging mark before  his injury, saw time at all four corner spots and second base for New York this season.

The role for both players with their team new is not clear. The Yankees have Derek Jeter at shortstop, of course, and Brian Roberts at second. Johnson could serve as a utility infielder for Boston, who have Dustin Pedroia entrenched at second and the threesome of Xander Bogaerts, Brock Holt and a rehabbing Will Middlebrooks competing for time on the left side of the infield.

Drew and Johnson are both free agents at the end of the season.

The move was the fourth of the day for the Red Sox, who also traded Jon Lester, John Lackey and Andrew Miller.

The Red Sox and Yankees meet for a three-game series at Fenway starting Friday.
