Red Sox waiting on Stephen Drew decision

Team’s patience limited, though

Pitchers and catchers reported to spring training Saturday and the first full-squad workout will be Thursday. It would be hyperbole to label Drew’s absence a distraction at this point, but there is a clear sense of unfinished business.
