Cleveland, OH ( - The Boston Red Sox recalled shortstop Stephen Drew from Triple-A Pawtucket among roster moves on Monday.

The Red Sox and the 31-year-old Drew agreed on a one-year contract through the end of this season back on May 21. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but multiple outlets reported that Drew will received around $10 million -- the prorated portion of the $14.1 million offer he declined last November.

Drew batted .253 with 13 homers and a .333 on-base percentage in 124 games for the Red Sox last season, then started all 16 postseason games in Boston's run to the World Series title.

In a seven-game minor-league stint with Single-A Greenville and the PawSox after his signing, Drew finished 5-for-21 with three doubles and drove in two runs.

Also on Monday, the Sox placed infielder Mike Carp on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Sunday, with a broken toe on his right foot; optioned infielder Garin Cecchini to Pawtucket and recalled outfielder Daniel Nava from Pawtucket.

Nava will see his third stint with Boston this season. In 22 previous appearances, he hit a paltry .130 with two homers, two doubles and three RBI.

Cecchini made his major-league debut on Sunday and posted an RBI double in a 4-0 Red Sox victory against the Rays.
