2. Stephen Drew, Yankees

Drew has spent his entire career as a shortstop, but he will slide over to second base for the 2015 season after signing a 1 year/$5M deal to remain in New York. And though Drew’s 2014 was horrendous, as he hit only .162/.237/.299 in 85 games, that can be partially attributed to his late start to the season, as the Red Sox did not sign him until mid-May. With a full spring training, Drew, who is only 31 years old, should be able to return to full strength and hit somewhere closer to his career slash line of .256/.322/.425 than last season, making him a potentially solid second baseman for the Yankees.
