Arizona Diamondbacks Roster

Brandon Drury: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Drury is hitting second and starting at second base for the D-backs in their spring exhibition against Grand Canyon University on Wednesday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Drury could be in line to see a lot of time at second base in 2017, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports. "We're going to try and get as many at-bats for our best players, so he would be one of those," general manager Mike Hazen said.

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."

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Acquired from Atlanta in 2013 as part of the Justin Upton trade, Drury made his MLB debut in 2015 after a strong few years in the minors. Drury’s cup of coffee in the big leagues consisted of 20 games, in which he registered 59 plate appearances, hitting .214 with two home runs and eight RBI. A career .285 hitter in the minors, Drury could improve at the plate as he adjusts to big league pitching. Drury only hit five home runs in 567 plate appearances last year at Double-A and Triple-A, though he did belt 23 in 2014 playing at the High-A and Double-A levels. Speed doesn’t figure to be a big part of his game going forward — he's yet to steal more than four bases in any of his professional seasons. His defensive flexibility (he played at second, third and shortstop last year with Arizona) should help him get enough starts to be useful in deeper formats, and his advanced hit tool makes him worth following in shallower leagues as well.

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.
