Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale indicated Thursday that Brandon Drury will continue to see regular playing time as long as he produces.
"We’ll have to figure out where (Friday) and keep running with it because he’s a darn good player," Hale said. Drury has started five of the last six games and done so at three different positions. He's made starts at second and third base and both corner outfield spots this season and is batting .384 with three homers and seven RBI over his last 10 contests. The D'Backs could move David Peralta to center field and hand Drury the right field job, but they're hesitant to do it on a full-time basis since it would really weaken their defense. Drury needs to be owned in deeper fantasy leagues even if he doesn't have an official position. Apr 29 - 8:45 AM

Brandon Drury collected a pair of hits against the Cubs, including an RBI double.

Drury currently doesn’t have a clear path to everyday playing time for the Diamondbacks. In his second start of the season on Saturday, though, he went 2-for-3 with a double and drove in his first run of the campaign. The 23-year-old was the only Arizona hitter to have more than one base hit on Saturday night. He hit .331/.384/.458 in Triple-A last year and is one of the better hitting prospects in the National League, so there’s some fantasy intrigue here. The problem is that it's unclear where the at-bats will come. He’ll need to rake in his sporadic starts, like he did against the Cubs, to earn more playing time and be anything more than a deep-league flyer at this point in the 2016 season.

Brandon Drury went 3-for-4 with an RBI triple in Saturday's Cactus League finale against the Royals.

Starting in left field, Drury did nothing to hurt his chances of making the club in the wake of A.J. Pollock's unfortunate injury. The 23-year-old leaves spring with a .389 average, 1.145 OPS, four homers and 13 RBI. Even if he doesn't break camp with the team, Drury's future is bright and should be a contributor sometime in 2016.
Apr 2 - 6:06 PM

Brandon Drury went 4-for-4 with his fourth homer and eighth double Saturday as the Diamondbacks and Brewers played to a 7-7 tie.

Drury has a 1.200 OPS this spring, but that hasn't even allowed him to gain any ground on Jake Lamb, whose OPS stands at 1.205. The Diamondbacks are looking at him at first base and in left field, but he'll go to Triple-A and wait for something to open up during the season.
Mar 27 - 12:51 AM

The Diamondbacks are giving Brandon Drury work at first base and in left field.

Jake Lamb remains the favorite for the starting third base job, but Drury has impressed enough for the Diamondbacks to try to find a creative way to fit him on the roster. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Monday that they'd have to give him regular at-bats to keep him on the roster, so he still might be better off in the minors to begin the year.
Mar 21 - 11:08 PM

Brandon Drury hit his third home run of Cactus League play on Saturday.

Drury hit a solo shot off Chi Chi Gonzalez, his only hit in three at-bats. The third baseman has nine RBI and is making a run at the starting spot thought to be occupied by Jake Lamb. Even if he doesn't win the job, Drury has big power and should have a chance to show it in the majors sooner than later.
Mar 19 - 8:38 PM

Brandon Drury slugged a two-run homer in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

It was Drury's second home run this week. The bat has been working early for the 23-year-old third baseman, who now stands 7-for-16 with six RBI in six spring games. Jake Lamb should be considered the frontrunner to maintain the hot corner for the Snakes come Opening Day, but at the very least Drury is probably making him glance over his shoulder.
Mar 9 - 9:18 PM

Brandon Drury went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored Tuesday night against the Angels.

Drury smacked an RBI double off Angels starter Garrett Richards in the bottom of the second inning and then singled off Angels reliever Cory Rasmus in the bottom of the sixth. The 23-year-old is 6-for-14 with four RBI through five Cactus League games and may be able to put some pressure on Jake Lamb for the Diamondbacks' starting third base gig. Lamb, who homered Tuesday in the Snakes' other split-squad game, is still the safe bet for the job.
Mar 8 - 9:23 PM

Brandon Drury singled and ripped a two-run homer in Monday's win over the Mariners.

The young infielder hit one over the boards against Donn Roach in the fourth inning. Jake Lamb is the favorite to start at third base for the D'Backs and will almost surely get the first crack at the job. However, Drury is an interesting player in his own right and could eventually get a shot if Lamb stumbles.
Mar 7 - 7:04 PM

Brandon Drury went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Dodgers.

Drury notched his second major league home run on Thursday, a solo shot against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw in the fourth inning. He would later add his third double of the season. Since being called up on September 1, the 22-year-old third baseman is 12-for-40 (.300) with two homers, three doubles and seven RBI. He hasn't lit exactly lit the world on fire in his limited action, but as one of the Diamondbacks' top prospects, should see more playing time next season.

Brandon Drury will make his major league debut Tuesday against the Rockies.

Drury, who was called up Tuesday, will start at third base and bat seventh against left-hander Yohan Flande. The 22-year-old has batted .303/.344/.412 with five homers and 61 RBI over 130 games this season between Double- and Triple-A. The power has fallen off a bit, but he's ready for his first taste of the majors and could be relevant in NL-only fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks recalled 3B Brandon Drury from Triple-A Reno.

Drury's one of the Diamondbacks top prospects. The 22-year-old third baseman was slashing a robust .331/.384/.458 with two homers and 25 RBI in 251 at-bats for Triple-A Reno. He'll see his first major league action as part of the Snakes' expanded September roster.
Tue, Sep 1, 2015 12:16:00 PM

Diamondbacks 3B prospect Brandon Drury matched his career-high with five hits Tuesday in a victory for Triple-A Reno.

He finished a triple shy of the cycle. Drury has hit an astounding .412 over his eight-game hitting streak. The 22-year-old has shown remarkable plate discipline since his call-up, walking 18 times with only 31 strikeouts in 225 plate appearances. He could be a possibility for the Diamondbacks when the rosters expand in September.

Diamondbacks optioned 3B Brandon Drury to Double-A Mobile.

Drury made a nice impression with a .435/.533/.957 batting line and three homers over 30 plate appearances this spring, but he doesn't have a place on the big league club yet. The 22-year-old is one of the team's top prospects and could push for big league time in 2015.

Brandon Drury went 2-for-3 and drove home three runs on Tuesday, propelling the Diamondbacks to a 10-0 win over the Giants in Cactus League action.

Drury victimized World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner for a solo homer then later delivered a two-run double, finishing the afternoon 2-for-3. The 22-year-old is one of the top position prospects in the D'Backs organization and is certainly making a strong impression this spring, hitting .435/.500/.957 with three homers and nine RBI. A third baseman by trade, he has also seen time at second base this spring.
