    Yankees' Stephen Drew undergoes concussion test over weekend

    Yankees infielder Stephen Drew has been dealing with dizziness resulting from a head cold and underwent concussion tests Saturday, ESPN New York reports. Drew has seen very limited playing time lately, being held out of the lineup for 13 consecutive games and this appears to be the reason. The club has not yet received the results of the concussion test, but with just a week left, it's possible the 32-year-old's season could be done if it comes back positive. Drew is slashing .201/.271/.381 on the year and trade deadline acquisition Dustin Ackley has been hitting well in his stead, so it's unclear how much playing time he'll get when he's back to full health.

    Yankees want Stephen Drew to learn utility role

    With infielder Robert Refsnyder receiving a larger role at second base recently, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he would like for Stephen Drew to learn other positions, reports The Journal News. "We want him to be able to play all three positions, second, short and third," Girardi said. "We've asked our middle infielders to be able to do that if you want to give Headley a day off, if you want to give Didi a day off, obviously he's going to play some second as well. Those sort of things. He's prepared to go in anywhere." Girardi maintains that which player will start at second base is a day-to-day decision. Drew is hitting .182 in 79 games this season.
