J.D. Drew showed up at spring training for the Boston Red Sox with a $70-million, five-year deal, saying he's as healthy as he has been in his career and he's sure his right shoulder will hold up throughout the duration of his contract.

"Absolutely," the right fielder and former Dodger said. "I've been in a situation over the last three years where I've changed some things in the way I kind of manage myself off the field, and that's really paid off."
