Fifty-two days after the initial announcement of a deal, the Red Sox will finalize their 5/70 contract with right fielder J.D. Drew this afternoon.
[S]ources with direct knowledge of the negotiations said all parties have signed off on an agreement ... giving the team the right to void either of the last two years of the deal, or both, should Drew's right shoulder render him unable to play. ...
[I]f Drew goes on the disabled list in his third year for issues related to the shoulder for a proscribed length of time, the Sox have the option to void the final two years. If he winds up on the disabled list in his fourth year, the Sox have the option of voiding the final year.
