Drew targets Saturday return to Sox

|
DENVER -- On Thursday, Red Sox right fielder J.D. Drew reported some improvement in the right hamstring strain that has kept him out of the lineup for the past five games. The latest target for Drew is to return to the mix against the Giants on Saturday, when the Sox face righty Joe Martinez.

"We've got a lefty going tomorrow, so I can't imagine we'd play him tomorrow," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said on Thursday. "Not that J.D. can't hit lefties -- I think he's actually feeling pretty good. He's doing a little bit better. But I think [Saturday] is very realistic."

Josh Reddick, who was promoted from Triple-A Pawtucket for the third time this season on Tuesday, started in right for the third straight game.
