The news MLB was waiting for was confirmed by the Boston Red Sox’s official website – Stephen Drew is a Red Sox player once more after signing on until the end of the season.

The shortstop became a free agent after leaving the World Series champions last year. But Drew failed to attract another club and has gone back to Fenway Park to cover their injury crisis.

Third baseman Will Middlebrooks has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right index finger for a second time this week. Rookie Xander Bogaerts, who replaced Drew at shortstop this year, has filled in at third for the injured Middlebrooks, meaning the Red Sox have lacked personnel at shortstop.

According to MLB.com, Drew rejected Boston’s contract offer of $14.1 million last November for the 2014 season but the shortstop has returned to Fenway and agreed to a $10 million deal for the rest of the season.

Drew completed a medical on Wednesday before the signing and will wear the number seven jersey.

The 31-year-old arrived at the Red Sox as a free agent in 2013, playing 124 games with a .253 average, 13 homers and 67 RBIs.

The Red Sox have not had to surrender a Draft pick because Drew was their own free agent.

After Drew re-joined his former club Kendrys Morales remains the only outstanding free agent left in the market.
