General manager Mike Hazen suggested Drury is very much in the team's plans for 2017 but he may not have a set defensive position to begin the year, the Arizona Republic reports. "I think more than anything else when you have a hitter of that caliber you want to find him at-bats," Hazen said. "It's a similar situation to what we had with Brock Holt in Boston. You find a way to get him on the field. That's of the most critical importance, getting him in the lineup. The defensive position becomes secondary."

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A throw-in from the trade that sent Justin Upton to the Braves in 2013, Drury has hit at every stop since joining the Diamondbacks. The 22-year-old third baseman hit .302, .300, and .294 at Low-A, High-A, and Double-A, respectively, over the past two seasons, and has managed to keep his strikeout rate below 20.0% at each stop. Last season, Drury hit 23 home runs in 594 plate appearances between High-A and Double-A, but he is unlikely to ever be an above-average power threat in the major leagues, relative to his position. It's unclear when the Diamondbacks might give him consideration to compete for their third-base job following the signing of Cuban free agent Yasmany Tomas this winter. If Drury can continue to flash a plus hit tool in a return stop to Double-A and a likely promotion to Triple-A during the 2015 season, he may begin to force the issue in 2016.
